Temp - between 30 - 50 C Sun is always high in the sky Cloudless skies Night time temp are as low as 5C Rainfall - annual total can be less than 100 mm Hot deserts are in the path of trade winds There is very little vegetation Plants - case study Needles offer protection Thick waxy bark prevents moisture loss Juicy flesh stores water Animals - camel Stores fat in hump Long eyelashes and nostrils that close and open giving protection during sandstorms Wide hooves to walk on dry sand Thick lips which enable the camel to eat prickly plants

SOLUTIONS TO DESERTIFICATION 1- slow down soil erosion by planting more trees 2- bind the soil particles by planting more grasses 3- dig deeper wells to find water for irrigation 4- introduce new breeds of animals
