The blueprint for desert survival is found in the plants and animals that live there. If we can imitate their survival strategies, we can become a part of the desert's ecosystem instead of an antagonist.

Learning to sit out the heat of the day, equating water with life, and becoming nocturnal are not only easy steps, but basic desert living skills. Once sheltered, Bob advises us to write down five major wilderness survival priorities: water, signals, shelter, warmth and food then muse on them.

Surprisingly, in general, food is the lowest priority. In all of Bob’s research he has come across no evidence of anyone starving to death in an Australian survival situation.

The threat or opportunity of resource development often prompts a movement for the recognition of indigenous ownership and control of lands. In Australia, this is particularly true in the mineral-rich arid lands of the interior. Recognition of indigenous peoples' interest in their lands, however, was a long time coming in this jurisdiction.

We can more efficiently use existing water resources and better control salinization to improve arid lands, find new ways to rotate crops to protect the fragile soil, and plant sand-fixing bushes. Here’s a great free e-book produced by the Australian Rural Industries Research & Development Corporation – “Bee Friendly: A planting guide for European Honey Bees and Australian native pollinators” by Mark Leech.

This comprehensive planting guide lists both Australian native plants and exotic plants which can be used as bee forage for European honeybees. Plant Resources of Arid and Semiarid Lands: A Global Perspective is a collection of papers that evaluates the existing native plant resources in the arid and semiarid regions.

The papers deal with the resources found in these arid regions such as food potential, forage, fuel. Other crops would require many more resources and much more maintenance in order to just survive in such a climate.

The other is the prevention of desertification, which is defined by “Desertification” () as the destruction of animal and plant life in arid areas due to human actions, by the active revegetation of arid lands.

In the debate over grazing in the West, there’s a trend toward magical thinking. In “If you like fish and birds, hug a cow,” a Writers on the Range column from ranchers Pat and Sharon O’Toole, both indulge in unscientific flights of fantasy, claiming that irrigation and livestock are beneficial for native fish and wildlife.
