Summary of Desertification

Short Summary of Desertification

Desertification occurs when:
  • the tree and plant cover that binds the soil is removed. It occurs when trees and bushes are stripped away for fuelwood and timber, or to clear land for cultivation.
  • animals eat away grasses and erode topsoil with their hooves.
  • intensive farming depletes the nutrients in the soil.
Wind and water erosion aggravate the damage, carrying away topsoil and leaving behind a highly infertile mix of dust and sand. It is the combination of these factors that transforms degraded land into desert.

Effects of Desertification :
- Infertile land
- Crack lands
- Global Warming
- Waste of land
- Endanger life forms
- Destruction of natural habitats
