The semi-arid zones of the world are fragile ecosystems which are being sub­ stantially modified by the activities of mankind. Increasing human populations have resulted in greater demands on semi-arid zones for providing human susten­ ance and the possibility that this may enhance desertification is a grave concern. These zones are harsh habitats for humans. Figure 1. Extension of arid and semi-arid soils in the world (after FAO, ). The characteristics of aridity have been discussed in extenso in Drylands and Desertification, whereby a distinction can be made between hyper-arid (less than mm annual rainfall), arid .
