Desert Habitat

Deserts are the driest places on Earth—they get fewer than 10 inches (25 centimeters) of rain a year. Some deserts may get a lot of rain all at once. Then it might not rain again for months—or even years!

Shivering in the Desert

Many deserts were formed 8,000 to 10,000 years ago. Some are superhot in the day. In fact the highest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 134°F (56.6°C) in California and Nevada's Death Valley in 1913. Even though many deserts can reach temperatures of well over 100°F (37.8°C) during the day in summer, they can get cold at night. Why? In most places, clouds and water vapor hold in heat, sort of like a blanket. But deserts don’t have enough clouds and water vapor to do this.

Some deserts are always cold—in fact the biggest desert in the world is Antarctica! Even though it’s covered in snow and ice, it rarely rains or snows in Antarctica, which makes it a desert.

Famous Deserts

Deserts can be huge spaces. For instance, the entire continental United States could almost fit inside Africa’s Sahara desert. The giant Gobi desert in Asia stretches across parts of China and Mongolia . North America has large deserts, too, including the Mojave in California and parts of Nevada , Arizona , and Utah . The Sonoran is a large desert located in Mexico and parts of the Southwestern United States. More than one-fifth of the continent of Australia is covered in desert. The Great Victoria Desert is the largest on the continent.

Look Closely

It may seem like nothing can live in a desert because it’s so dry. But most deserts are full of life, with plants and animals that have adapted to survive without much water. Some plants, like cacti, store enough water in their stems to last until the next rain. Other plants, like mesquite grass, have very small leaves that curl up in the daytime to conserve the water they have. Some desert plants sprout and bloom only when it rains.

Desert animals also have adaptations that help them survive without much water. Kangaroo rats in the Sonoran Desert get water from the seeds they eat. Some carnivores, such as desert foxes, get enough liquid from their prey.

Another trick? Most desert animals stay underground or beneath shady rocks during the day. Many of them come out to hunt for food at night, when it’s cool.

If you plan to explore a desert, be sure to pack water, sunscreen, and protective clothing. After all, you’re not a kangaroo rat!

Desert Temperatures • Hot and dry. Temperatures can range from 30° at night to 136° during the day. • Cold Temperatures can be below freezing . • Deserts located closer to the ___________ tend to be the hottest.

Desert Landforms Sand Bedrock Gravel

Wind erosion helps to shape the desert. Gravel “Desert Pavement”

Water erosion helps to shape the desert. The Grand Canyon was formed through water erosion.

Life in the Desert • How can there be life in the desert with very little water and extreme temperatures? • Adapt: to change or adjust for survival • The key survival factor for people, animals, and plants is their ability to adapt to the environment.

Desert Plants • Many plants are found in the desert. They usually grow close to the ground. • These plants have special parts that help them save water. • The special parts are: thick stem, shallow and wide roots, and thick skin covered with spines instead of leaves.

Desert Animals • There are many animals in the desert. • They can survive by eating other animals or by eating plants that store water. • To protect them from the hot sun, they stay in the shade or in their shelter. • Some animals sleep during the day and are active at night. • Nocturnal: Active or awake at night or taking place during the night • Some animals have hard shells to protect them from losing much water. • More animals live in hot deserts than in cold deserts.

Humans have changed the deserts Shrinking deserts: Growing deserts: Desertification: the growth or expansion of deserts due to human activities. Semi-arid: receiving 10-12 inches of annual precipitation and supporting only short grass. • We have brought water in through irrigation. • We have built dams to transport water to desert regions to help farmers and keep up with growth in the cities.
