  Multifactorial reconstruction of semi-arid Mediterranean landscapes for multipurpose land uses. In: A.B. Allen (Editor), The Reconstruction of Disturbed Arid Lands: An Ecological Approach. Westview Press, Boulder, pp. All arid plant species are capable of forming mycorrhizal associations except a limited suite of annual weeds. Almost any perturbation associated with human development serves to reduce VAM inoculum. Thus the restoration of disturbed lands depends, in part, on the restoration of viable VAM symbioses.

Recent public demands for the preservation of biological diversity are often using this concept as a surrogate for the value of rare species, nature preserves, and wilderness. But diversity per se can have value in intensively managed and artificial ecosystems as well, suggesting that maybe we should practice ecosystem "restoration" more than just land reclamation". If a plant community is to.

Practical Handbook of Disturbed Land Revegetation. Book Logging byproducts like bark and wood chips are becoming more scarce for use on arid lands as logging has decreased on adjacent lands. The scarcity of topsoil in post-mined arid landscapes is a challenge for future restoration efforts. With 20% of these regions degraded, and a predicted degradation rate of 12 million ha per year, restoration of these disturbed regions has become of international priority to maintain ecosystem function, biodiversity and resilience to globalchange (Menz et al., ).
