Transcript: Average Annual Temperature (Celsius) = 22.8 Annual Temperature Range (Celsius) = 21.2 Total Annual Precipitation (mm) = 43.8 Average Annual Precipitation (mm) = 3.65 Summer Precipitation (mm) =11.8 Winter Precipitation (mm) = 32 In the Sahara Desert, various biotic and abiotic factors coexist; co-operating with each other. An abiotic factor defines any of the non-living components of an ecosystem; a non living environmental factor; such factors include the physical and chemical components in the environment. In Sahara Desert, there is a diversity of interesting abiotic features. First of all, one fourth of Sahara Desert is mountainous and highest peak among these are 3,415 meters above sea level. This is quite unimaginable that mountain which reaches up to almost 3,500 meters exists in the middle of Sahara Desert. Another abiotic feature is water. Water is an unusual factor to go together with the biome, desert; however, Nile River runs through the Sahara. The interesting fact is that Nile River is not just a river but a longest river in the world. In addition, sand dunes are an abiotic factor which is simply a hill of sand. These dunes occur in different forms and sizes, formed by interaction with the wind. Last interesting abiotic factor is depression: land below sea level. The soils in the depression areas are usually salty due to the effects of ocean. Desert seems to be an odd location where organisms could exist because of extremely high temperatures throughout the year. However, there are lots of biotic factors that survive and abide. In Sahara desert, animal population consists of animals such as desert hedgehog, gerbil, jerboa, cape hare, Barbary sheep, Oryx, spotted hyena, cobras, algae shrimps and much more. Avian species also exists in Sahara Desert; for example, birds like ostriches, raptors, secretary birds, desert eagle, barn owls and so on. Not only animals but also plants exist in desert biome. In the Sahara Desert, majority of the vegetation consists of xerophytes and halophytes (plants which are rich in salts), grasses, shrubs, and tree. These desert vegetations have their unique way of survival. For example, a desert plant, African Welwitchsia posses a very long root that penetrates through earth which helps them to survive in deserted conditions. In addition, cactuses in Sahara desert have thickened their stems in order to hold water for longer period; and reduced their leaves to spines to minimize water loss through the leaf stomata. Some common desert plants are cypress, olive, acacia, while the types of grasses include Pancium and Aristida. •Waxy covering, which prevents water loss. (water conserving characteristics) •Some have small and narrow leaves which decreases heating from the sun. •Store water •Reduce water loss •Seed Dispersion •Some of the plants in this area open their stomata only at night when evaporation rates are lowest. •Some plants have very long roots which grow in to the ground and can extend to thirty meters below the surface to reach underground water sources. (tap roots) •Some plants have shallow roots to catch water as soon as it lands •Water Storage (Ability to store water or go without it for long periods of time.) •Heat Regulation (Avoid heat such by moving around or limiting activity during the hottest part of day. Some, by storing body fat in their tails or in a hump like the camel.) •Water conservation •Shelter Creation •Usually are Nocturnal (move around at dawn or dusk because the temperature has cooled down) • Dissipate Heat •Some have developed huge ears to pass off heat quickly Bees pollinate cacti flowers. A Coyote eating a plant fruit and dispersing the seeds elsewhere in their feces. (The animal benefits from eating, and the plant benefits from the seed dispersal.) Microbes on a cactus help the cactus absorb water. Gopher snake use an abandoned rodent hole. It does not affect the rodent hole. A desert holly shrub providing shade for a young creosote bush. A cactus wren builds its nest in a cholla cactus to protect its young ones from predators such as raven. There is no harm to the cactus. A flea is a parasite on a coyote. The flea benefits by drinking the coyote's blood, but the coyote, by losing blood and acquiring discomfort and potential disease, is harmed. Mistletoe is parasitic on the desert ironwood. The population of snakes (prey) effect the population of hawks (predator) due to time lag. The cycle begins when the snake population decreases as the hawks eat the snakes. Then the hawk population decreases as available snakes run out. The cycle continues as the decreased number of hawks allows more snakes to survive, and the snake population rebounds. Then, the hawk population increases because it now has an abundant food supply. The hawks reduce the snake population and the cycle begins again. Our ecosystem is a very sensitive factor which takes unimaginable amount of years to restore it to balance after human destruction and negative

The Blue Desert.

Transcript: You should definitely consider going to the blue desert, because not that many people have time to go to them because they are interested in the pyramids and all the landmarks. The Blue Desert. what wildlife/landscapes will you see? Buried mosque Only the tip of this minaret peeks out of a huge sand dune on Egypt's northern Mediterranean coast. Archaelogists stumbled upon the ninth century site at Baltim, in 1998. They believe the entire mosque of Sidi El-Kheshoey is buried intact underneath the sand. Some believe the endlessly shifting dunes conceal the remains of a village too Your holiday. Conclusion About the desert. It is located in EgyptThe Blue Desert is an area of the Sinai Desert near the Red Sea resort of Dahab, where a number of rocks are painted blue. The climate max is 36*c This piece of art was created in 1980 when, following the 1979 Egyptian–Israeli Peace Treaty Belgian artist Jean Verame visited Sinai to paint a line of peace. Verame gained the permission of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and received a grant of ten tons of paint from the United Nations. Jean Verame later created a similar installation near the village of Tafraout in southern Morocco. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/picture_gallery/08/middle_east_egypt0s_hidden_treasures/html/9.stm Al-Khalawati Mosque, Cairo Hanging on by a thread to the side of a hill overlooking Cairo, is the ruined mosque and tomb of Shahin al-Khalawati. Shahin was a pious man. He built the mosque in 1538 and stayed there until his death thirty years later, never descending to the hubbub of Cairo below.

Transcript: The Desert By Noah C. and Will P. What is a Desert? What is it? The Desert is a large open wasteland full of sand that has a surprising amount of specialized animals and wildlife that can live in it. The desert has four different ecosystems, which include hot and dry deserts, semi arid deserts, coastal deserts and cold deserts. All of these deserts receive very little rainfall per year. This is what a Desert looks like. Desert Locations All the major deserts are around the equator. The Australian Outback (Southern hemisphere), the Sahara Desert (On the equator), and Southwestern USA. (Northern hemisphere) Locations The Outback Outback Australia Sahara Sahara Africa American Southwest Southwest USA Climate Daytime temperature can range from 50°C (120°F) all the way up to 90°C (195°F), averaging at while nighttime temperature can go as low as -3.9°C (25°F). Rainfall averages at 1-8 inches per year. Climate Rain Rainfall Temperature Temperature Plants in the Desert Cactus: a type of desert plant that has thick, leafless stems covered in prickly spines or sharp spikes. Cornflowers: Blue flowers that rarely bloom during desert rains Yucca Flower: A succulent plant with clusters of waxy white flowers Plants Cactus Cactus Cornflower Cornflower Yucca Flower Yucca Flower Animals Animals Horned Toad Lizard Scorpions Spiders Centipedes Beetles Wood Lice Grasshopper Mouse Pygmy Mouse Elephant Shrews Golden Moles Gerbils Jerboas kangaroo Rats African Sand Vipers Sidewinders Rattlesnakes Gila Monsters Horned Toad Lizard Horned Toad Lizard Pygmy Mouse Pygmy Mouse African Sand Vipers African Sand Vipers Vocabulary Desertification Vocabulary Desertification The making of new deserts through a change in climate or destructive land use. Desertification 3 Facts Fact 1: Deserts at most get about 25cm (10 inches) of rainfall per year Fact 2: Each year, 15 million acres of deserts are formed through destructive land use and climate change Fact 3: The Sahara desert is the world's largest desert, it stretches from the Atlantic coast in Africa to the Arabian Peninsula 3 Facts Desert Rain Rain Desertification Desertification The Sahara The Sahara Questions Questions Question 1: What Causes Desertification? Question 2: Why are Deserts so hot? Question 3: How do the animals living in the Desert survive?

Transcript: DRagonFly Scorpions BEETLE The adaptions my critter has came from a Blister Beetle and a DragonFly. The Blister Beetle/DragonFly gets around from it's from it's legs, but most importantly it's long wide wings. With it's black and tan stripped body and clear colored wings its able to blend in with it's surroundings. It's antenna's are longer than usual to help it on land and in air. Also the Blister Beetle now has a tail that carries poison in it. When a predator trys to attack, it uses it's tail as protection. It is important for organisms to maintain homeostasis because it helps stablize their internal conditions, but in order for it to maintain homeostasis the cells must work together as one. - Extreme heat - Sandstorms - Low rain fall (harder for them to maintain water in their body) Millipede & centipede i would describe homeostasis as environment and which tends to maintain a stable temperature in either in door or outdoor , so that that comfortable where their at. its important for them to maintain homeostasis because if they don't there going to be switched around to different environments that there not used to and it wouldn't be good for them. Some species of Millipede do not need to mate, as they are parthenogenetic. This means that they are able to produce offspring without mating. There can be two different ways the female will become fertilised. The first way, is by the male simply leaving a spermatophore on the ground of the enclosure. The female will then find it, and she will place it in her spermacthecae, and store it. The second way, is by the Millipedes actually mating. The male will coil around the female, and manually place the spermatophore in her spermathecae. Adaptations Reproductive my adaptations my critter has , have came from a regular millipede and centipede. it has different parts to make it different from each other. my critter has a hard black shell with holes to help it to breath and extra long legs to help it move faster then normal. it lives in the desert with quick sand and the legs help it move through it smooth so that it can get from location to location. my critter came about from a worm it reproduce. when predators try to attack they shoot a noxious compound several feet at their attackers eyes.
