Desertification around oases is the major obstacle for sustainable development of oases in arid regions of northwest China. An effective way of maintaining the stability of oases is to recover the relatively stable ecological zone between an oasis...

Desertification and de-desertification represent two contradictory forms of human impact upon China's arid lands. The first generally dominates in degraded, dry-farming areas in the steppe zone; the Mu-us and Kolshin Sand Lands are examples o...
