  1. semidesert

    A semidesert is a type of ecosystem or environment that experiences moderate levels of rainfall, making it more hospitable than a true desert, but still having pronounced scarcity of vegetation and water bodies. This typically results in a habitat with mixed characteristics, including features of both desert conditions and more verdant landscapes. It can support a broader variety of plant and animal species than pure desert, but is less diverse than grasslands or forests.
