The study area lies within a peri-urban zone dominated by deciduous xerophilous
The vegetation of sandy desert territories of Turkmenistan is typically xerophilous
with wide endemic diversity of species.
Arg) is xerophilous
lacticiferous, toxic to animals when ingested in natura (Amorim, Medeiros, & Riet-Correa, 2005), but innocuous as hay or silage.
This biome has a large number of plant associations and floristic complexes with different physiognomies, including xerophilous
, deciduous trees, thorny bushes, cactus, and bromeliads, varying from grassland to xerophytic thorn savanna, and shrub woodland (Barbosa et al., 2006).
tridentata microphyllous desert scrub has a high species richness compared to other xeric scrub communities of Northeastern Mexico, with diversity values being similar to those of other xerophilous

Two species, Blaps gigas and Pimelia valdani dominate tenebrionid beetles while Chrysomelidae are represented mainly by Timarcha tenebricosa and beetles by Heliotaurus caeruleus, floricultural species and Tentyria interruptus, xerophilous
species and psammophile very abundant in the steppe and desert arid and a varied regime of the same type as that of the Blaps [83,6].
Cluster A1a represents xerophilous
, orotemperate submediterranean (orosub-mediterranean) hyperhumid relict Scots pine mesoforests from the middle oromediterranean belt of the Gredos range (~1600-1800 m asl).
Moreover, sorghum can be considered as a plant with xerophilous
characteristics, low soil fertility requirements and resistant/tolerant to drought and salinity.
The main vegetation unit in the Acarau River and its tributaries is dominated by Caatinga (a seasonal, xerophilous
thorn woodland/shrubland), and the area's climate is classified as tropical hot semi-arid (Maia et al.
It inhabits the Tepalcatepec Valley characterized by xerophilous
scrubland in the Balsas River Basin in the state of Michoacan.
