Desert Ecosystem: Plant and Animal Adaptations in Hot Deserts

Intense solar radiation, lashing winds, and little moisture i.e. less than 10 inches (25 cm) of rainfall create some of the harshest living condition in the biosphere called hot desert. In hot desert ecosystem generally with cloudless skies, the sun quickly heats the desert by day, producing the highest air temperatures (recorded as 57.8º C […]

Wet habitats in mangrove ecosystems have brilliant water dwelling life

India’s mangrove ecosystems record a total of 3,111 faunal, or animal species. Among the classificatory faunal groups present in our mangrove ecosystems, the greatest diversity in species is predictably among insects and some invertebrate species. However, being a wet habitat, other than them, the most plentiful form of fauna are fishes and reptiles, followed by […]
