North American Deserts Protecting Deserts Home Deserts stir the human imagination. They occupy nearly one-seventh of the world's land surface area, but carry only four percent of the human population. The immense spaces of the desert have inspired the explorer, and breed a heartiness in the people who live there. Today, especially with new means of transportation, more people than ever are discovering this unique resource.

Desert ecology
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search In ecology desert ecology is the sum of the interactions between both biotic and abiotic factors of the desert biomes The biotic factors of desert ecology include the interactions of plant animal , and bacterial populations in a desert community. Some of the abiotic factors also include latitude and longitude soil , and climate . Each of these factors have caused adaptations to the particular environment of the region. Deserts are most notable for their dry climates resulting from rain -blocking mountain ranges and remoteness from oceanic moisture. Deserts occupy one-fifth of the Earth's land surface and occur in two belts: between 15° and 35° latitude in both the southern and northern hemispheres. Deserts support diverse communities of plant and animals that have evolved resistance to and methods of circumventing the extreme temperatures and arid conditions. Desert ecology is characterized by dry, alkaline soils, low net production and opportunistic feeding patterns by herbivores and carnivores Lichens and blue-green algae are significant primary producers in the desert.

    It was completed in December 2002, under the supervision of Dr. Katrina Mangin, through the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology,
    Desert Ecology in the Classroom This website is intended to provide ideas and examples of concepts, lesson plans, field trips, and resources to help high school teachers teach desert ecology in the Tucson, Arizona area. Though field trip ideas and resources are local, many ideas can be used in any part of the country, and can also be adapted for use with younger students. These ideas are based on available programs and ideas from educators, as well as my studies of science education, but they have not been tested in actual classrooms. This is an undergraduate honors thesis, created by Elizabeth Karasz. It was completed in December 2002, under the supervision of Dr. Katrina Mangin, through the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, at the University of Arizona in Tucson: If you would like to read more about my thesis, read my statement about this project, or just the abstract (a shorter version).
