Deserts are not easily habitable environments, yet they're crawling with life. In a new exhibit at the Bruce Museum called Extreme Habitats: Living Desert Dry, much about these desolate locales is explained, like why and how they form and how persistent plants and animals adapt to survive there. It'll also touch upon how deforestation, drought and poor agricultural processes can turn fertile land into a desert.
