Deserts are places with very little precipitation, with an average Rainfall of less than 250 mm (10 in) annually. They are usually very hot during the day and cold during the night. However, Antarctica is also a desert, although it is winter all year round. This is because it receives little rainfal…l. Plants are sparse, and those that have adapted to the low water availability use a variety of methods to do so. Various kinds of animals snakes, lizards, and insects inhabit these regions, which have also developed qualities to survive in these arid conditions. Naturally there are far fewer animals because they need far more space to survive with the less available food supply. Of course, only few humans can be seen. The conditions are hostile, and there are limited resources there. People who choose to live there are either tribal people in Africa, or miners who mine for precious rocks found in deserts. See related link for more information. A desert is defined as any area that receives less than 250mm, or 10 inches, or precipitation as its annual rainfall. This is why the Antarctic is defined as a desert just as much as the Sahara Desert. a desert is a vast,dry area which rarely receives scanty rainfall (MORE)

mason Douglas kimpton middle school team 7-1 My biome is the desert biome. The desert biome is usually dry and extremely hot. Precipitation in the desert is scarce but there are some rainstorms, when it does rain it usually evaporates right when it hits the ground. Sometimes there are major r…ainstorms that can flood the desert, but then after that there can be no rain for weeks or even months. The temperature there is always extreme; it can usually reach up to 100+ degrees there. The reason for this is because there are no clouds to block the sun out. Deserts can expand for miles and miles on end, also one important fact about deserts is that it covers one fifth (20%) of the earth. Plant life in the desert is usually never seen but there is still some plant life. Plant life here includes the Barrel Cactus, Brittle Bush, Chain Fruit Cholla, Creosote Bush, and the Crimson Hedgehog Cactus. The barrel cactus is a beautiful cactus not only because of its shape (circle) but because of the beautiful flower that's sprouts at the top of it. The Brittle Bush is a common plant that can be seen in the desert. Uses for this plant are that you can make toothpaste out of the residue that is inside of its stem. The Chain Fruit Cholla is a cactus that looks more like a tree than a cactus. It also grows pear shaped fruits that can grow for years off of the cactus. The Creosote Bush is named this because it smell a lot like the creosote tar that is used on telephone poles. The bushes leaves can be used for antiseptics. Then last but not least is the Crimson Hedgehog Cactus. It is called the Crimson Hedgehog cactus because there is a big Crimson flower at the top of it. There a ton animal life in the desert. Some examples of these animals are Caracal, Black tail Jackrabbit, Fennec Fox, Kangaroo Rat, and the Meerkat. The Caracal, which looks like a Lynx, eats birds and rodents. It can usually weigh up to 20-40 pounds. The Black tailed Jackrabbit eats cacti, sagebrush, grasses, and clover. The Fennec Fox usually eats birds and bird eggs. During the day they usually burrow underground when it's the hottest. The Kangaroo Rat usually eats seeds and leaves. They are approximately 1.25-6.25 oz. then last but not least there is the cute Meerkat. The Meerkat usually feeds on insects and lizards. There homes are burrows that can go on for a long time. Animals adapt to the desert in many different ways. Some examples of these adaptations include burrowing. Many animals burrow underground during the day to keep cool. At night is when these animals hunt for there food. Some also dig burrows to reach the water tables underground. Some reptiles have special adaptations that can trigger moisture to there mouth when they are parched. Three interesting facts about the desert are that the desert is not always hot. It can drop as low as 18 degrees Fahrenheit. Also most deserts are covered in jagged rocks not sand. Most desert go without twelve months of rain. mason Douglas kimpton middle school team 7-1 (MORE)

Some deserts occur naturally. They are simply areas with low rainfall. Not only do they have low rainfall but they can go a number of months or longer without any rain. Other deserts are man made. Some come about when people strip the natural vegetation from an area. Some result when people remove t…he little amount of water that exists. This wrecks the level of ground moisture. It reduces the humidity making it more difficult for plants to grow. It reduces the transpiration. It increases the albedo. Thus, people are creating deserts. (MORE)
