The desert is an ecosystem that is teeming with life, all connected through food chains and food webs. From mesquite trees burying their roots deep in dried up arroyos To The cactus wren building her nest in the arms of a cactus, this habitat is one in which interconnections are essential for survival in a harsh and difficult environment.
