Tree Physiol, 20, 65–72. 7 What is a desert? 1 What is a desert? As described in Chapter 2, a desert is a biome that is characterized by low moisture levels and infrequent and unpredictable precipitation. Deserts, also known as arid lands, are regions that gain less precipitation (rain, sleet, or snow) than their potential evapotranspiration (evaporation from the soil and plants plus transpiration from plants), causing a severely limiting environment for living things. This is because most rain evaporates before it ever hits the ground.

The cold deserts, on the other hand, are so cold that the air can only hold a small amount of moisture. There is very little precipitation, and all the surface water is locked in unusable blocks of ice. The winter in cold deserts at latitudes midway between the polar and equatorial regions can be harsh, with temperatures below freezing being common. Blizzards and violent winds often accompany the icy temperatures. Although both extreme hot and cold deserts are generally not suitable for agricultural practices, the peripheral areas around such regions can be and people have been growing crops in these areas for thousands of years.

On a diurnal basis, the active storage tissues are the sapwood, with associated cambium and phloem, and the canopy. , 2001). These characteristic phenomena have evolved in olive plants to produce an efficient hydraulic system, and can assist olive plants in surviving under different water stress conditions.
