After fifty years working on rangelands of the Arid Mediterranean regions (North Africa, the Middle-East and Central Asia) and Africa it is time for me to close shop.

I have sorted out my scientific library of over 400 books – some unique in Australia – (flora, botany, rangelands, desertification, rangeland rehabilitation, forage, fodder shrubs, genetic resources, small ruminants, camels, water, geology, climatology, soils, sociology, geographical atlases, etc) collected over years and countries where I have worked and lived. All are now up for sale and listed on an excel file that I could send you.
