 CACTI

Cacti are well adapted for survival in the desert. They have:

  • Stems that can store water.
  • Widespread root systems that can collect water from a large area.

 

In addition, cacti have spines instead of leaves. These minimise the surface area and so reduce water loss by transpiration. The spines also protect the cacti from animals that might eat them
