The Luscious Life of Desert Plants

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show, we discuss fascinating adaptations of desert plants that store water in their leaves, stems or roots to adapt to dry climates and arid soil conditions.

Survival and adaptation at it’s best, these endemic plants are incredibly adaptive and they provide food and water for many other desert species.

With the help on an expert on succulents, Dr Ute Schmiedel from the University of Hamburg, we learn how and why these plants survive desert conditions.
