Paper Abstract

We studied changes in the oasis-desert ecosystems of Akesu Oasis in Xingjiang, China. We used the ‘frontier theory’ of landscape ecology to analyze changes from 1990 to 2000. The results show that considerable landscape changes occurred during that time as a result of changes in both natural and social-economic factors. However, the influence of socioeconomic factors predominated.
