What are xerophytes plants?

Xerophytes are plants that have adaptations to reduce water loss or indeed to conserve water. They occupy habitats in which there is some kind of water stress. Examples of such water stress habitats include:
  • Desert (high temp, low precipitation)
  • High Altitude & High Latitude ( low precipitation or water locked up as snow or ice)
  • Rapid drainage (sand dunes)
