Abstract:
The wealth of dryland biodiversity and associated knowledge is poorly documented and as a consequence dryland areas are now a thematic priority of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity. A general lack of understanding of the multi-dimensional nature of environmental change and the complexity of these social-ecological systems has fuelled myths about degradation which persist today across Africa. Using a multi-methods approach, this research focuses on biodiversity as a concept through which a more holistic understanding of dynamics might be achieved.
