Hot deserts are found in Africa, Asia, Australia, South America and in Northern America. Yellow colour indicating deserts. 82,000 INCITED POLICY CHANGE IN COUNTRIES 5 $5 MILLION (UNDER 5 YEARS OLD) Definition: A desert is a area of landwhere little or none precipitation occurs yearly. It mainly consists ofsand and little vegetation growsin the harsh temperatures of theof the desert which can exceed from 50 degrees at day to -18 degreesat night. Climate: The seasons warm throughout the year and very hot inthe summer the winters usually bring the only little rainfall. Temperatures are so high because the atmosphere has little humidity to block the sun's rays. Desert surfaces receive more than twice as muchsolar radiation and lose twice as much heat in the night than other biomes. Soil: Soil: The desert soil is course, shallowrocky, sandy and has no subsurface water. The dust is blown away leaving heavier pieces behind. Since there is no subsurface water many plants are unable to survive in the desert. Flora and Fauna: Plants are mainly ground hugging shrubs and short woody trees. Leaves are fully supported with nutrients with water conserving characteristics, they are small, thick and covered by a outer-layer. For the cacti instead of leaves it has pointy spinesthat stick out and photosynthesis can only be done bythe stem. Other plants like yuccas, ocotillo, sotol,agaves, turpentine bush, prickly bears and many more open their stomata (microscopic openings in the leavesthat allow gas exchange) they do this only at night when evaporation is low. The wild life mainly consists of small nocturnal (activeat night) carnivores. These special animals have to survive the heat and the cold and at the same time also to catch prey and survive without water. They do this with their very own techniques for example some toadsseal themselves in burrows and remain inactive foreight to nine months until heavy rain occurs.Other animals include: insects, mammals (camel andbadger), amphibians (toads), birds (eagle and vulture)and reptiles (lizards and snakes). Human impacts: There isn't a lot of humanimpacts in the desert since there is nosoil to grow anything and it is much to harsh to live there and there isn't any type material there that humans need. But there still is human impact by military exercises, testing bombs and vehicle maneuvering around courses which can affect the vegetation and animals by running over either.
