As far back as 1985 or so, I spent time in New Mexico at a SFI summer
school on complex systems; the time there allowed me to visit with
Iben Browning, who had recently (at that time) visited the chief of
the local Navaho Nation. Together, they agreed that the New Mexico
deserts were headed for a revival of the kind that means vegetation
not then native would be returning.    (02)

Plotting the northward migration of vegetation seems like a useful
addition to models.    (03)
