Mutualism: in the hot and dry desert is the relationship between a Gobi woodpecker and a cactus. The woodpecker feeds on insects and parasites that could harm the cactus.
Parasitism: A flea is a parasite on a coyote. The flea benefits by drinking the coyote's blood, but the coyote, by losing blood and acquiring discomfort and potential disease, is harmed.
Global warming is increasing the incidence of drought, which dries up water holes. Higher temperatures may produce an increasing number of wildfires that alter desert landscapes by eliminating slow-growing trees and shrubs and replacing them with fast-growing grasses.
Thanks for coming along and i hope you learned more about the Desert of Australia!
