Desert

Desert has a dry and arrid place.

     Lack of water defines the desert biome. Most deserts are hot, but some are cold and have snow and freezing temperatures. Many desert plants are succulents with fat, juicy leaves that retain and store water. Most desert animals, such as the Gila monster, have many adaptations to prevent overheating and drying out.

 

 

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

~Aldo Leopold
