  • descriptionAbstract

    The production in terrestrial ecosystems is influenced by climate, especially temperature and precipitation. Temperature influences the photosynthesis rate, and the available quantity of water limits both photosynthesis and the number of leaves that the plant can support and, consequently, the total production of plants. The high temperatures and low humidity make deserts one of the least productive terrestrial ecosystems. In this manner, an almost linear relationship exists between rainfall and the productivity of aerial plant organs.

    Keyworks: precipitation, biomass, desert, ecosystem, water.
