University Corporation for Atmospheric Research Abstract:

Deserts, one of the four major terrestial biomes, cover about one-fifth of Earth's land area. This interactive slide presentation shows some aspects of deserts, including dunes, desert-adapted plants, oases, and sculpted rock formations. There is also a map showing the distribution of the world's deserts. A background essay and discussion questions are included.

PBS LearningMedia Abstract:

Not all deserts are the same. This still collage produced for Teachers' Domain features views of different deserts around the world.
