Ecology - Biomes - Deserts Return to Biomes, Ecoregions and Habitats Main Page Buy Books on Deserts Buy Books on Biomes Deserts, in simplest terms, are areas of little rain or rainfall restricted to a short period during the year. Rain is limited because cool air sinks into a warmer region. As air warms its capacity to hold water vapor increases and rain cannot form. The great deserts of the world occur at about 30 degrees latitude on both sides of the equator and extend poleward in the interiors of the continents. These regions are areas of falling, warming air. Deserts can also be produced by the rain shadow effect of mountain ranges. As air masses approach from west to east in North America and meet a mountain range such as the Rockies, the air rises, cools, and loses much of its water vapor as rain or snow. The air falls on the other side of the mountains, warms, and creates a rain shadow on the eastern side of the mountains. There are four major deserts in North America; the Chihuahuan Desert (Northern-Central Mexico and southwestern Texas), the Sonoran Desert (southern Arizona and northern Mexico), the Mojave Desert (Southern California, Baja California, and western Arizona), and the Great Basin Desert of Utah and Nevada with isolated pieces extending as far north as southern British Columbia. The deserts of North America are characterized as either "hot desert" or "cold desert". The Sonoran, Mojave, and Chihuahuan Deserts are classified as "hot deserts", and the Great Basin Desert as "cold desert".

The Ecology and History of the Mojave Desert Region, Desert Studies Center
MICHAEL BONDELLO, Allan Hancock College and ROBERT FULTON, Desert Studies Center
May 23-27, 2003 Desert Studies Center, Baker, CA
The course will start on Friday night, the 23rd with an introduction
to the ecology of the Mojave National Preserve. Over the remainder of the course there will be field activities to investigate the Preserve's major geological features, its perennial plants, insects, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
Saturday's field trip will visit Willow Gulch in the Cima Volcanic Field, with observation of its plant and reptile life, cinder cones and lava flows, the Granite Mountains, the historic Kelso Train Depot, and the Devil's Playground at Kelso Dunes. Sunday's field trip will visit the historic copper smelting site at Copper Wells, the Cima Dome, and Cow Cove Petroglyph Site. Monday's field trip will visit higher desert localities along the Cima Road and Cedar Canyon. These visits will expand our understanding of the history of the region by the study of local well-preserved petroglyphs, the evidence of early settlers, and some of the more recent history of the Eastern Mojave Desert.

Teaching Tools For Using Sing Down the Rain in the Classroom or Library Hearing or reading the book Sing Down the Rain may be a student's first encounter with the cultural traditions of the Tohono O'odham Nation and/or the ecology of the Sonoran Desert. The introduction to the book provides background information necessary for student and/or teacher understanding of the text and illustrations. It may also help students for teachers to begin with a web of the ecology described in this book.
  • Social Studies and Language Arts:
    The obvious connection to curriculum in Sing Down the Rain in the study of Tohono O'odham cultural and spiritual traditions. The choral reading reflects the Tohono O'odham oral tradition and allows for language arts integration.
  • Science:
    Using the saguaro cactus as a starting point, create a web of the ecology described in the poem. Three books that support the ecology connection are: by Kathleen Weidner Zoehfeld (Trudy, 1997), Desert Giant: The World of the Saguaro Cactus by Barbara Bash (Sierra Club, 1989), and

Research Profile
The Ramon Science Center conducts long-term research on the ecology and geology of the Makhtesh Ramon and surrounding environment in the central Negev desert. The center is situated in the town of Mizpe Ramon , about 35 kilometers south of the Blaustein Institute for Desert Research in Sede Boqer. Makhtesh Ramon is a large erosion crater some 40 kilometers long and about 8 kilometers wide, surrounded by 400 meter-high natural walls (see above photograph).
Initially established as a geological park because of its remarkably diversity of geological structures and habitats, this crater now forms the central part of Israel's largest nature reserve, called the Negev Mountains National Park. Makhtesh Ramon is home to a wide variety of desert animals and plants, some of which are found nowhere else. Of particular ecological interest is the fact that the crater forms a natural boundary between two major biogeographic zones, the steppe (Irano-Turanian) and the true (Saharo-Arabian) desert. As such, the crater forms a remarkable natural laboratory for the study of the ecological interactions of two floras.
The faculty of the Ramon Science Center consists of three geologists ( ) and three ecologists ( ). Our geological interests include the geomorphology and geological evolution of the central

Rose-colored sand dunes, volcanic cinder cones, Joshua tree forests, and mile-high mountains are all part of the scene at Mojave National Preserve. Located in the heart of the Mojave Desert, this new park was established in 1994 through the California Desert Protection Act. The Preserve encompasses 1.6 million acres of mountains, jumble rocks, desert washes, and dry lakes; outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the opportunity for solitude here not easily found at other southern California parks. Plant and animal life varies by elevation. Desert tortoises burrow in creosote bush flats, while the black and yellow Scott’s oriole nests in Joshua trees higher up the slopes. Mule deer and bighorn sheep roam among pinyon pine and juniper in the Preserve’s many mountain ranges. Mojave Desert experiences change with the seasons. Infrequent winter snows sparkle on the mountains. With enough moisture, spring wildflowers carpet the desert with vivid colors. Summers are hot; hikers and campers explore the higher elevations such as Mid-Hills and the New York Mountains. The cooler temperatures of fall mark hunting season. A network of dirt roads offer year round opportunities to explore by 4-wheel drive vehicle.

(Ph.D., Toronto) 905-525-9140, ext.23018 to find out more about the research in our lab click here I am interested in the relevance of evolutionary and ecological theories to psychology. My more specific interests include comparative studies of social diversity among related animal species, sex differences, parent-offspring relations, lethal violence, and the evolutionary consequences of uncertain paternity in animals with internal fertilization.
I conduct research on both human and nonhuman behaviour, usually in collaboration with Margo Wilson. We do field and laboratory research on the behavioural ecology of desert rodents, and we do epidemiological studies of homicide, which we treat as a window on human passions and antagonisms and hence as a sort of assay of interpersonal conflict.

Some of them might well, when they grow older, join the free-ranging Arabian oryx population in 'Uruq Bani Ma'arid... Finally, patchily distributed precipitations occurred earlier this month in the Mahazat as-Sayd protected area, where Arabian oryx have been also reintroduced. Although 12.6 mm at best, it is significant according to our arid zone standards! Enjoy your readings!
ABOUT THIS WEBSITE The present website intends to detail the Arabian oryx Oryx leucoryx project in Saudi Arabia, to describe major conservation achievements and on-going reintroduction projects, and to provide a database concerning the ecology of this endangered desert ungulate species. The Arabian oryx, a charismatic white antelope, once roamed throughout most of the desert plains of the Arabian Peninsula. Unfortunately he was hunted to extinction in the 1970s. Humans had exterminated from the wild a beautiful and distinctive antelope, which had evolved to exploit one of the world's harshest environments.
