I came across this paper from May, 2007 by a Norwegian named Gunnar Ettestøl. It was of particular interest to me since Dimidia will soon be working on agro-forestry projects to combat desertification in sub-Saharan Africa. In this research, I have become increasingly familiar with trees and shrubs aptly suited to survive the harsh dryness of areas like the Sahara Desert and the Sahel.
I present this paper by Ettestøl because he provides interesting details on potential and synergy for reforestation and solar energy production in subtropical zones.
I hope you enjoy the read.
