About the product

The Ordos Plateau of China is an account of the regional human-environmental history of the Ordos Plateau, a dryland region inhabited by Chinese farmers and Mongolian shepherds. It surveys environmental changes in vegetation and soil during 1949-1992, examines such societal factors as government policy, economics, population and cultural attitudes, and investigates how these factors have contributed to environmental change in the Ordos Plateau.
