The vegetation of the Mojave and Colorado deserts:

Cactus Scrub




This community is dominated by a variety of cactus species alone or in a mixture of cacti, drought-deciduous shrubs, and succulents. Occurring on dry, rocky south-facing slopes, this plant community is found more commonly in the Colorado Desert than in the Mojave. The Mojave is home to over 20 species of cactus while the Colorado contains more than 125 species (Schoenherr and Burk, 2007).
