Abstract

The widespread distribution of irreversible degradation in dryland environments (desertification), along with recent studies of complex earth-surface systems, suggests that desertification may be the result of inherent biophysical feedbacks in dryland systems. This notion is tested by applying qualitative stability analysis of partially-specified systems. This analysis shows that a well-known model of biophysical feedbacks in dryland ecosystems is inherently unstable
