Desert and dry shrublands

Year: 2009 Author: Riccardo Pravettoni, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
The large surface area of drylands gives dryland carbon sequestration a global significance, despite their relatively low carbon density. The fact that many dryland soils have been degraded means that they are currently far from saturated with carbon and their potential to sequester carbon can be high.
