This study details the activities of an FAO project designed to promote biodiversity conservation activities in the semi-arid rangelands of the Syrian Arab Republic. The FAO project team, together with nomadic Bedouin herders and local hunters, identified and documented over 350 species of fauna during two years of field surveying. This study highlights the vital role that local knowledge plays in conserving biodiversity and ecosystem function in semi-arid rangelands.
