Millennium Ecosystem Assessment: Many of 2 billion dryland dwellers at risk as land degrades

...opulations, low stocking rates, and large areas to forage on. The conversion of rangelands to croplands reduced the available pasture and the collection of firewood by many, not necessarily just the pastoralists, reduced range quality.
