The Flora of the Desolation

Because of the brutal conditions of the desolation and dangerous animal life there, plants that live in the Desolation of Shidar have been forced to evolve quickly and develop a number of remarkable defensive adaptations. It is important to note that these plants are found only in the Desolation. As far as is known, no one has transplanted species  in deserts, arid scrublands and desolate badlands. Desert flora has evolved to survive the super dry conditions found in that harsh environment. Such adaptations include a waxy coating over the skin to retain moisture and small, dense needles in place of leaves that loose less moisture through a smaller surface area.
