Mounir Louhaichi, Mohamed Neffati. (31/12/2014). Managing rangelands: promoting sustainable native shrub species - Calligonum comosum. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
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.
