The CIDE

The Desertification Research Centre –CIDE– is a join institute of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), the University of Valencia and the Autonomous Government of Valencia. The CIDE is devoted to the research on the causes, factors and processes of Desertification. CIDE is composed of a multidisciplinary team of researchers devoted to the characterization and study of soils as a natural resource, their degradation and conservation measures; the ecology and evolution of plants; and the cartographic integration of the state and dynamics of the landscape components into thematic documents for land use planning. The CIDE is organized into two scientific Departments, Environmental quality and soils and Ecology (this structure is pending aproval and formalization), and several Services.
