Deserts seem very interesting in the course of our brief visits. despite the fact that, the lives of vegetation and animals are very dif?cult less than the cruel weather conditions of excessive tempe- ture and scant water offer in deserts, occasionally linked to excessive concent- tions of salt. The editor of this ebook was once born and taken up within the nice Indian desolate tract, and has spent a lot of his existence learning the expansion and metabolism of barren region vegetation. it's very fascinating on a funky summer season night to take a seat on the best of a sand dune listening in basic terms to blowing air and not anything else. it's been my dream to organize a quantity on barren region vegetation encompassing quite a few points of wasteland plant biology. during this ebook, i've got attempted to give sensible and necessary elements of the crops assets of deserts besides scienti?c enter aimed toward realizing and impr- ing the software of those vegetation. The scant crops of deserts helps animal lifestyles and offers many beneficial medicinal drugs, trees and gasoline wooden for people. accordingly, there are chapters dedicated to medicinal vegetation (Chap. 1), halophytes (Chaps. thirteen, 14), and fruit crops (Chaps. 17, 20). barren region vegetation have a special reproductive biology (Chaps. 9–11), well-adapted eco-physiological and anatomical charact- istics (Chap. 7), and specialized metabolism and survival skills. those vegetation are dif?cult to propagate and pose many difficulties to researchers constructing biote- nological ways for his or her amelioration (Chaps. 18–20).
