Cover picture: In drylands, the traditional desertification paradigm is being replaced by new perspectives that account for landscapes consisting of mosaics of exurban development intermingled with climate-smart agricultural enterprises. One example is the use of aridland-adapted Criollo cattle, introduced to North America by the Spanish in the early 16th century.
