Summary:
Deserts cover nearly one-fifth of the Earth's land surface. Even in these sand-filled expanses that dot the globe, much life can be found, from plants like cacti and sagebrush to well-adapted animals such as the Gila monster and the sidewinder. Discover how the process of desertification continually changes more land into deserts each and every year. A hands-on demonstration helps explain the different adaptations used by plants and animals to conserve water, while a visit with a herpetologist showcases the unusual adaptations of the deadly sidewinder. One of eight volumes in the Biomes of the World in Action DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library in Action Collection. This title is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Life Science: structure & function in living systems, reproduction & heredity, regulation & behavior, populations & ecosystems, and diversity & adaptations of organisms. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
