North Africa to India Vegetation Megatransect
along the 30° North Latitude, compiled from pictures from the Confluence.org project.

Human-created deserts, started and continuously maintained by domesticated cattle, sheep, camels and goats, starting 5,500 years ago and continuing to present.


North Africa to India, ecological and vegetation photo megatransect, running along as close to the 30° North Latitude as possible. The largest and most massive environmental destruction on the planet, human-created deserts, continuously maintained free of the original perennial native grasses by domesticated cattle, sheep, camels and goats, starting 5,500 years ago to present.
