Managing rangelands: promoting sustainable native shrub species - Calligonum comosum
MetadataShow full item record
Calligonum comosum: the multipurpose sand dune stabilizer. Arid and semi-arid rangelands face increasing climate variability and grazing pressure as the world’s demand for food increases. ICARDA is promoting drought-tolerant shrub and grass species as a crucial means of assisting rangeland rehabilitation efforts, helping to conserve rapidly-depleting water resources, and maintain grazing at sustainable levels. The result: a win-win situation for rural communities and the environment.
