Caption: Oasis maintenance. Local woman holding dates from a date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) planted as part of measures to help prevent desertification of an oasis in the Sahara Desert, Morocco. Increasing desertification is an ever-present problem in regions bordering the Sahara Desert. Date palms protect the surrounding land from the sun, helping to prevent further desertification. The dates themselves are also an important part of the local economy.
