Caption: Xerophyte plant. View of an unidentified xerophytic plant growing on sand. Xerophytes are plants adapted to live in dry conditions such as sand dunes or deserts. The most common adaptation of these plants includes small leaves (such as those seen here) to reduce the quantity of water loss. Other adaptations may include dense hairs or spines over the leaves (such as seen on cacti) or leaves that roll up in dry weather (such as marram grass). Photographed on Santa Cruz Island, part of the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador.
