Organisms that live in desert and desert-scrub biomes have developed unique adaptations that aid in their survival. The Sahara Desert takes up ten percent of the continent of Africa, and is the largest desert in the world. The species that live in the Sahara are highly adapted to survive in the extreme conditions they live in. What morphological and physiological adaptations might be seen in the organisms that live in the Sahara Desert?

(1) Answers

Some morphological and physiological adaptations of organisms includes special storage organs of geophytes and other plants, deep root systems of trees in order to reach deep aquifers. Additionally, some plants survive by germinating quickly after the rains and before the summer heat these plants complete their life cycles.
