2  Deserts all over the world  Many 30 degrees latitude, north 30 degrees latitude south  Biggest deserts- Sahara, Gobi, Kalahari

3  Hot and dry, semiarid, costal, cold  Night cool, 40’s & 50’s  Day hot, 100 degrees  Very dry, less than 10 in. precipitation yearly  Little plant life

4  Cold, winter, summer  Snowfall, more rain  Antarctica, Greenland, Nearctic realm  Little plant life, same animals - burrow Sp.Sp.

5  Hot  Few, don’t need much water  Cacti, shrubs, grasses  Birdcage plants, brittlebush, spinifex grasses, yucca  Tumbleweed not native, Asian

6 (Ferocactus wislizenii)  Compass cactus -same  5-11 ft. tall  Cylinder body  Pulp, water

7 (Encelia farinosa)  Medium, round shrub  Long, oval, leaves, silver-green, fuzzy  Brittle branches, resin –has smell  Late winter, early spring, yellow blossoms

8 (Yucca)  South USA, Mexico, West Indies  Poisonous leaves  Blooms small, white-purple blossoms

9  Similar, hot, cold  Burrow, heat, cool  Rodents, snakes  Camels

10 (Suricata suricatta)  Burrow, stay cool  Mongooses, upright-famed  Live together, communitys

11 (Camelus dromedarius), (Camelus bactrianus),  Bactrian, two  Dromedary, one  Hump hint  LONG periods no water

17 Personally, I have learned so much about a part of the world I never gave much thought to. If it weren’t for this project, I probably would never have looked into the desert. I’m really glad I got to study this fascinating biome. Thank you!
