|Desert USA: Desert Plants and Wildflowers|
Desert plants have adapted to the extremes of heat and aridity by using both physical and behavioral mechanisms, much like desert animals. The ingenuity and variety of these many adaptations are explored in a set of links to wildflowers, cacti and succulents, trees, shrubs, and grasses. Links to related topics such as desert plant survival, wildflower articles, and others are also included.
