Zonobiome of the Subtropical Arid Climate with Deserts
Deserts are arid regions where potential evaporation is very much higher than annual precipitation. These regions can be further subdivided into semiarid, arid, and extremely arid, which together, cover 35% of the earth’s land surface. The cold winter period which is typical of the arid regions of the temperate zone is lacking in the subtropical desert zone (see Sect. VII).
