At night the temperature drops to 40 are 50 degrees The main form of precipitation in a hot desert is rain. But the hot desert only gets ten inches or less of rain per year. That’s a little bit. The main form of precipitation in a cold desert is either snow or fog. Most deserts are found in the mountain areas .
  3. 4. <ul><li>Many of the features of desert plants are adaptations traits that makes the plant survive in its harsh environment.
