This book, a translation of the Russian original, deals with various aspects of world deserts.

    Cold deserts have hot summers but extremely cold winters. These deserts are found in high, flat areas, called plateaus, or mountainous areas in temperate regions of the world.

Jan 22,  · Desert, any large, extremely dry area of land with sparse vegetation. It is one of Earth’s major types of ecosystems, supporting a community of distinctive plants and animals specially adapted to the harsh environment.

Apr 14,  · Just to weigh in, I get frustrated at times by many of the type-ins (Riyad, Edinburg, etc), but to suddenly deviate from the site norm for this single quiz, and to do so purely for the difference between noun and adjective (especially when both are commonly accepted - see citations above) feels unnecessarily confusing.
