Comparisons are made up of the variations of invertebrates from polar deserts with these of temperate and subtropical deserts. those areas characterize one of the most opposed environments on the earth and an array of recommendations for survival has been constructed. Polar species are good tailored to chilly and event arid stipulations because of low precipitation and absence of liquid water in the course of the iciness.

Not surprisingly, such species are restricted to habitats with many tall trees, from which they can launch their spectacular aerial swoops. Among the most adaptable of all marsupials, the common brushtailed possum, has adapted very well to the changes wrought by humans. It does well in suburban habitats and is a frequent visitor to gardens and outbuildings. By no means all diprotodonts have regular nests, dens or other homes. The majority of large macropods are seminomadic and use a large home range.
