It has little plant life and a few mammals and insects. The Desert is a place closest to the equator, with the most direct sunlight, and contains many cacti and brush. These two places are so different, yet they are both dry places. The Tundra’s water vapor freezes in the air causing it to be dry. As for in the Desert, it is so hot there is very little amounts of water vapor in the air. These brochures really helped me learn a lot about the different areas. There are varied types of biomes on earth.
