DRY DESERTS HABITATIt is a dry place that receives less than 10 inches of rainThere is very little water in the air.Deserts can be formed with rocks that have gone hard over millions of years or full of sand like the SaharaTypical description of a hot and dry desertThe hottest type of desert, with parched terrain and rapid evaporation. In the hot and dry desert soils are course-textured, shallow, rocky or gravely with good drainage and have no subsurface water. They are coarse because there is less chemical weathering. The finer dust and sand particles are blown elsewhere, leaving heavier pieces behind.
PLANTSThere are different types of plants in the desert:Barrel cactus, creosote bush, desert sage, saguaro, palm trees, desert marigold, Joshua tree, desert pincushion flower, desert lily, desert primrose, organ pipe cactus and elephant tree.
ANIMALSThere are many different types of animals:Caracal, fat tail scorpion, fennec fox, camal, rattle snake, Gould's Monitor, Grants golden Mole, ground squirrel, kangaroo rat, pallid bat, sand grouse, tarantula hawk wasp, thorny devil and water holding frog.
UNDER THE SEAThe marine ecosystem, in addition to the temperate and tropical oceans, includes the shorelines: with mud flats, rocky and sandy shores, tide pools, barrier islands, estuaries, salt marshes, and mangrove forests making up the shoreline segmentThe temperature can be different and depends on where on earth it is
ANIMALSThere is a lot of different fishes in the ocean such as sharks.There are some mammals in the ocean such as whales.It is also home to:Worms, jellies, coral, sea anemones and planktons.
COLD HABITThe temperature there is below freezing most of the time that the place is mostly frozen. Some of the snow fell long time ago that it has frozen and harden like rocks.Tundra is a cold habitat characterized by low temperatures, short vegetation, long winters, brief growing seasons, and limited drainage
PLANTSThe temperature in the poles are really cold for many plants to grow, also the poles spend half of the year in sun and half of the year in darkness.In the tundra the ground is permanently frozen so the plants cannot grow, only shrubs and small plants can grow here.
ANIMALSThe temperature there is so cold that it is hard for animals to live however there are animals there such as:Polar bears, penguins, walrus, artic sea duck.The temperature in the tundra is much more habitable there however there is very little food. musk ox, reindeer, caribou, fox, hare, wolf, lemming, bears
