Summary

Written with US drought researchers in mind, this text links Australia#xE2;#xAC;"s drought experience with the predicted impact of climate change around the world by exploring how rural communities adapt to climate stress. It illustrates the intersection of physical and social processes by examining the impact of Australia#xE2;#xAC;"s rainfall deficit on population density, resource use, and land management practices. While it focuses on some of the physical science aspects of climate change in Australia, its main focus lays on the management aspects. Complete with real-world examples, the book includes advice on possible adaption strategies.
