A desert is nothing but a barren area where there is little precipitation and the living conditions are very hostile for animal and plant life.These areas lack vegetation and there are large variations in temperatures from day to night. Flora and fauna living in these areas need special adaptations to live in this harsh environment. People also struggle to survive in deserts due to its climatic conditions. Reports say that about one third of the world is desert. There are basically four different types of deserts mainly hot and dry, arid or semiarid, cold and coastal.
