Desert biomes covers 1/5 of the Earth. The average precipitation in desert biomes is less than 50 cm yearly. The land is usually in low altitude. There are very few large mammals living in the desert biome. The desert biome is able to to inhabit both plants and animals. The desert is very warm during the day time, and gets cold at night. The average temperature in a desert is 100 degrees, and at night, it can get to even 24 degrees. Some animals in the desert are nocturnal and only go out at night when the temperature is more tolerable.

Abiotic Factors

Abiotic factors in the dry and hot desert include high temperature, low precipitation, cold weather at night, sunlight, and low amounts of water. The high temperature makes the desert hot and dry. The average temperature in the desert can get around 100 degrees during the day time. At night it gets very cold. The average can go as low as 24 degrees. The average precipitation in the desert is only 50 cm a year, so there aren't many plants because of the low amount of water.

Geographic Location

Deserts are usually located near the equator or somewhere near, that's why it is so hot. They are also located near the center of the continent, away from the water and moisture. The land is low altitude.
