Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences, is reorganized by the former Xinjiang Institute of Biology, Pedology and Desert Research and Xinjiang Institute of Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1998, and is the only institute of natural resources and environmental sciences of Chinese Academy of Sciences in the four minority autonomous regions of China. After entering the Knowledge Innovation Project, the discipline orientations and objectives of the new institute are to carry out the prospective, strategic and foundational research work in three main research fields, i.e. the oasis ecological process and evolution mechanism, oasis ecological restoration and environmental improvement, and natural resources exploitation and utilization and regional development based on the strategic demands of the Development of the West Regions of China; to aim at the international scientific development frontal of arid land research and develop the original scientific innovations in oasis ecology, desert environmental science and arid geography; to make the geo-predominance into full play, strengthen the institute development orientation of developing the disciplines with tasks, and gradually develop our institute into a top-ranking institute with the distinct characteristics at home and the important effect in the international arid land research field.
