6. Unusual Habitats moderated by Marion Cimmino
The Sonoran Desert is one of the most biologically diverse deserts in the world. The biodiversity is due to the fact that there are many habitats to accommodate a variety of plants and animals. A habitat is a place where an organism lives; a place for shelter, food and rearing young. We will not only explore traditional habitats associated with desert environments but some unusual habitats that are not often considered a part of the desert. We will also examine the life style of the plants and animals that occupy these habitats.
Marion Cimmino is a frequent contributor to the ILR curriculum. Her courses often center around the natural environment which surrounds us.
