Caption: Landscape in the Mojave Desert, California. The plant with the spiky, bright green leaves is a Mojave Yucca. The bareness of a desert is partly created by an excess of solar energy. Plants adopt one of two strategies to survive. Annuals such as the spring wild flowers have a life-cycle tailored to favourable environmental conditions. The alternative strategy, as followed by the Joshua tree, for example, is a conservative year- round existence, with flourishing limited to moist periods & a state of latency during long droughts.
