What Is the Desert Ecosystem like?


Deserts host animals and plants living in what strikes many human as hostile environments. In most eco systems most plants compete for sunlight, but in deserts plants are adapted to shorten the effects of too much solar energy. The plants life cycles goes dormant as the desert conditions become unfavourable with time, making some plants to quickly germinate, renew and flower their species before annual moisture dries up.
