In this report you will learn about Hot and Dry Deserts and Cold Deserts. I hope you enjoy! A Hot and Dry Desert is, as you can tell from the name, hot and dry. Most Hot and Dry Deserts don't have very many plants. A cold desert is a desert that has snow in the winter instead of just dropping a few degrees in temperature like they would in a Hot and Dry Desert. Deserts cover about one fifth of the Earth's land surface. Hot and Dry Deserts temperature ranges from 20 to 25° C. The precipitation in Hot and Dry Deserts and the precipitation in Cold Deserts is different. Hot and Dry Deserts are warm throughout the fall and spring seasons and very hot during the summer. the winters usually have very little if any rainfall. Hot and Dry Deserts vegetation is very rare. Cold Desert's plants are scattered. Hot and Dry Deserts animals include small nocturnal (only active at night) carnivores.

Online exhibits : The world's biomes The desert biome Deserts cover about one fifth of the Earth's surface and occur where rainfall is less than 50 cm/year. Although most deserts, such as the Sahara of North Africa and the deserts of the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and Australia, occur at low latitudes, another kind of desert, cold deserts, occur in the basin and range area of Utah and Nevada and in parts of western Asia. Most deserts have a considerable amount of specialized vegetation, as well as specialized vertebrate and invertebrate animals. There are relatively few large mammals in deserts because most are not capable of storing sufficient water and withstanding the heat. Desert biomes can be classified according to several characteristics. Hot and dry desert The four major North American deserts of this type are the Chihuahuan, Sonoran, Mojave and Great Basin. The seasons are generally warm throughout the year and very hot in the summer. Canopy in most deserts is very rare.
Desert The defining characteristic of a desert is that it is dry. Depending on its geographical location, the annual precipitation in a desert varies from half an inch to as much as 15 inches. Rainfall is usually very localized, and although it is frequently seasonal, it is difficult to predict when or where it will occur. Deserts can be either hot such as the Australian Desert or cold such as the Gobi Desert. Deserts may occur along the coast such as the Atacama and Namib deserts or in the interior of continents such as the Great Basin and Australian deserts, which are far from any source of water. Because all deserts are dry, they have large daily temperature variations. Back | Next

La pâtisserie n’appartiendrait qu’aux pâtissiers… c’est hélas vrai, et la science de nos amis pâtissiers a bien du mal à arriver aux fourneaux rustiques des cuisines.

A desert is a barren area of land where little precipitation occurs and consequently living conditions are hostile for plant and animal life. The lack of vegetation exposes the unprotected surface of the ground to the processes of denudation. About one third of the land surface of the world is arid or semi-arid. Deserts are formed by weathering processes as large variations in temperature between day and night put strains on the rocks which consequently break in pieces. Plants and animals living in the desert need special adaptations to survive in the harsh environment. Etymology Physical geography Classification Potential evapotranspiration supplements the measurement of precipitation in providing a scientific measurement-based definition of a desert. Cold desert: snow surface at Dome C Station, Antarctica Cold deserts, sometimes known as temperate deserts, occur at higher latitudes than hot deserts, and the aridity is caused by the dryness of the air.

Union Post of Fort Craig Paddy Graydon's Mule Bombs - Union Captain James "Paddy" Graydon had a plan, and every soldier who had ever served with Paddy Graydon understood that things could get dangerous in a hurry whenever that Irishman had a plan. They said he was "reckless" and "arrogant." They said he was a "daredevil" and a "braggart." And they revered him. They knew that in campaigns against Apaches, Navajos and outlaws across New Mexico, Arizona and northern Mexico, Paddy Graydon had proven himself to be "fearless" and "indefatigable." Now, every soldier at the Union post of Fort Craig, on the west bank of the Rio Grande in central New Mexico, hoped that Graydon's latest plan would work. Billy the Kid William Bonney - Some people say that he was a "psychotic moron from the slums of New York". Billy the Kid was born in 1859, most likely in New York City.

Far from being barren wastelands, deserts are biologically rich habitats with a vast array of animals and plants that have adapted to the harsh conditions there. Some deserts are among the planet's last remaining areas of total wilderness. Yet more than one billion people, one-sixth of the Earth's population, actually live in desert regions. Deserts cover more than one fifth of the Earth's land, and they are found on every continent. A place that receives less than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain per year is considered a desert. And despite the common conceptions of deserts as dry and hot, there are cold deserts as well. Desert animals have adapted ways to help them keep cool and use less water. Desert plants may have to go without fresh water for years at a time. Some of the world's semi-arid regions are turning into desert at an alarming rate. Global warming also threatens to change the ecology of desert.

Blue Planet Biomes - Plants
The Importance of Plants Close to 2.5 billion years ago, the earth's surface and atmosphere were stable enough to support primitive life. Single-cell organisms began to develop in the seas that covered the planet. Plants play the most important part in the cycle of nature. The oxygen we breathe comes from plants. Leaves are the main food-making part of most plants. Plant Facts Scientists believe there are over 260,000 species of plants. Certain characteristics of plants set them apart from other living things. Plants and Their Environment Plants require a reasonable level of heat to grow. A plant's environment is made up of many factors. No two natural communities are exactly alike, but many resemble one another more than they differ. Medicine Plants provide many useful drugs.
