Climate change in arid environments : revisiting the past to understand the future

Auteur :
LIOUBIMTSEVA, E.

Description :
Arid regions are expected to undergo significant changes under a scenario of climate warming, but there is considerable variability and uncertainty in these estimates between different scenarios. The A. discusses the results of palaeoecological reconstructions and model scenarios for 4 major arid regions (the Saharo-Arabian, Australian, Turanian and the US deserts and semi-deserts). Although palaeodata provide valuable information about possible past changes in the vegetation-climate system, it is unlikely that the history of the world's desert is a key for their future.
