how can we breathe in the desert?
interesting question, i'll dmc my supervisors and reach out to you as soon as i have the answer
through the air?????? idk lol
We breathe the sand. I heard it's a better source of air than oxygen.
Harvard told me they need you immediately.
Maybe its cactus that make dem oxygen
Proof positive the Middle East is full of oxygen thieves.
So first off, this is a cool question, I got asked this a couple years ago by my biology teacher and it peaked my curiosity so I was asked to write a small paper on this topic and I still recall a few things, so let me enlighten you, lol.
I felt like pointing this out since it’s been a while that I got to drop the knowledge bomb on people.
The earth's atmosphere is made up of about 21 percent oxygen and since plants indeed do give off oxygen; places, where more plants/trees are present, have a higher localized oxygen rating.
Now, since oxygen is, in fact, a gas, which is subject to the laws of physics, it's safe to say it's pretty much all over the place.
Even though deserts may look "bleak," there's plenty of plants out there pumping out oxygen, they're called Crassulacean acid metabolism plants, or simply put CAM plants (f.ex. a pineapple or as Germi stated, cactus). These are plants that have a high tolerance towards drought, in other words, they survive in low-water conditions. They make use of whatever little water they have available in the air around them in order to produce oxygen through photosynthesis, some plants are even able to do it during the night.
Marvelous isn't it?
Now, have a good day mate.
