Synopsis

Deserts by Leon Gray

Deserts are one of the harshest environments on Earth, but many plants, people and animals have made deserts their home and are adapted to living there. They have to be tough to survive the raging hot sun, icy nights, sandstorms and of course, very little (and sometimes no) rain. Read on to find out how they do it! Deserts are also changing. Some are being irrigated and used to grow crops, or they can be used for sport and leisure. Find out what changes we can expect for the deserts of the future. Books aimed at KS2 readers wanting to find out a bit more about world environments. Amazing Habitats explores six main habitats.
