How do people affect the desert?

How humans harm deserts:

  1. By building roads through them
  2. By driving strait through the desert, destroying plants
  3. Constructions throughout the desert
  4. Overgrazing sheep and cattle may destroy plants-though this has slowed over the years
  5. Military training, though helpful in protecting deserts, may crush plants and small animals
  6. By overusing water
  7. Desert Farms
  8. and rally car races

How humans help deserts:

  1. By conserving water; if you conserve water where you live, there will be more water for the dry deserts
  2. Volunteer in a desert by pulling out nonnative desert plants
