Arid Ecosystemspublishes original scientific research articles on desert and semidesert ecosystems and environment:
- systematic studies of arid territories: climate changes, water supply of territories, soils as ecological factors of ecosystems state and dynamics in different scales (from local to global);
- systematic studies of arid ecosystems: composition and structure, diversity, ecology; paleohistory; dynamics under anthropogenic and natural factors impact, including climate changes; studying of bioresources and biodiversity, and development of the mapping methods;
- arid ecosystems protection: development of the theory and methods of degradation prevention and monitoring; desert ecosystems rehabilitation;
- problems of desertification: theoretical and practical issues of modern aridization processes under anthropogenic impact and global climate changes.
The journal was founded in 1995.
