Despite how barren the desert may appear on the surface, there are many plants and animals who live there and go unnoticed. These plants and animals rely on each other for food in the desert. Deserts do not have much water, so the plants and animals that live there must learn how to adapt. Desert plants get energy from the sun and adapt to store water. Herbivores get energy and water from the plants when they eat them. Carnivores also receive energy when they eat other animals. Decomposers get energy and nutrients from dead plants and animals.
