This workshop will cover the principles and processes associated with the desert environment. We will study the characteristics of deserts around the world, from their unique qualities to those all deserts have in common. We will learn about the most suitable places to live in the desert, examine the differences between macro and micro-habitats and discuss in detail the role of humans in the desert ecosystem and the impact we have on it. The workshop will combine classroom lectures, field trips and experiences.
