The results of many studies carried out by Soviet scientists are still kept in paper form, and therefore not yet available to the general public. To introduce some of the work to a wider audience, the СADI team, for the first time, has scanned relevant articles from the international scientific-practical journal “Problems of desert development” from 1967 to 1999.

The journal “Problems of desert development” is a publication of the National Institute of Desert Flora and Fauna of Turkmenistan within UNEP and ESCAP. The journal is one of the few periodicals globally covering the most important research and development experiences in arid lands and an important source of information on deserts.

The articles are available on our website in Russian with abstracts in English.
