  1. Desert


    Desert rainfall is 25cm per year. Animals are active at night to avoid dehydration,from the extreme temperature,  they burrow into the soil during the day to avoid the heat.Plants have widespread roots to  tap water from wide areas. The leaves are long and narrow to  reduce the surface available for transpiration therefore conserving water.

    Generally desert biome is characterised with low rainfall, high sunlight.They cover about 20 % of the earth landmass.  They can be divided into four categories'hot, dry, semiarid, coastal and cold.

  2. Desert


    A biome can be defined as a portion of the biosphere with distinct flora and fauna with respect to abiotic factors such as temperature, rainfall, topography, etc. They play important roles in the sustenance of life on earth.

    The major types of biomes that exist in the world include:

    Desert biomesTundra biomesAquatic biomesForest biomesGrassland biomes

    The desert biomes are characterized by very little or no rainfalls with high temperature, low atmospheric moisture and low vegetation cover. Because of the high temperature and sun intensity, animals within deserts are mostly active at night in order to prevent desiccation.

    Plants within the desert have also adopted some adaptive attributes in order to cope with the harsh conditions. These adaptations include having extensive roots that take in water quickly when available, possession of modified leaves to prevent excessive water loss due to evapotranspiration, etc.

    The biome being described in the question is desert.

  3. Nocturnal
