The desert has a unique ecosystem despite its dry climate. Most plants that grow in the desert are annuals, which means that they only live for a season. During long dry periods, their seeds lay dormant. However, they wake up quickly when a soaking rain falls. This allows the seeds to germinate, and the plants grow and produce seeds. Afterward, they die.

Due to the lack of clouds, temperatures in the desert are extremely hot during the day and rapidly drop during the night. This is because the air in a desert loses heat twice as rapidly as the air in a humid region. As a result, the daily minimum temperature in a desert is generally below freezing. However, if the desert is close to a sea, its temperatures are much lower.

The dryness of a desert is the main defining characteristic. Any land area with a deficit of water is considered a desert. In general, an area with less than 254 millimeters (10 inches) of precipitation each year is classified as a desert. If there is a water shortage, a person in a desert could starve to death or become severely dehydrated within a few days.

Despite its dry climate, the desert is populated with animals and plants. Its inhabitants include burrowing insects, lizards, snakes, birds, and more. However, the desert is not a good habitat for large mammals.
