Cold Desert's plants are scattered. In areas with little shade,about 10 percent of the ground is covered with plants. In some areas of sagebrush it reaches 85 percent.
LOCATION: Although few animals and plants are adapted to the extremely dry desert life, the desert is a vital biome. The desert is important because it covers about a fifth of the earth's surface! There are both hot and cold deserts.
The desert biome.
Climate. There are two main types of desert in the world-the hot desert and the semi-desert.

This was all about the animals and plants found in a desert biome.
In this chapter, you will learn about climates and climate regions called biomes. Earth has six main biomes that have particular plants and animals. These biomes are deserts, grasslands, temperate deciduous forests, rainforests, taiga, and tundras.
Even if the rainfall is kept at a bare minimum, several species of animals and plants thrive in this climate, the animals, while nocturnal, can still be found
The differences in these biomes can be traced to differences in climate and where they are located in relation to the Equator.
