Desert: A desert is an arid region characterized by extremely high or low temperatures, low rainfall and scarce vegetation. Water supports life, giving our earth the name ‘living planet’. It is very difficult to live in a place where there is no water to drink, no grass to feed the cattle and no water for the growth of grass. Hence the need to conserve water cannot be overemphasized.
It is a wonder that people who live in the deserts have learnt to have cope up with extremely harsh climates. Desert is either as hot as fire or as cold as ice.
Hence, depending on the temperature, we can find hot deserts or cold deserts. People inhabit these lands wherever little water is available to practice agriculture.
