What are the environmental threats to the Mojave Desert?

    The environmental threats to the Mojave Desert are influenced by human impact, pollution, and urban sprawl. With the expansion of large cities and nearby communities, there is a significant increase in local effects such as recreational pressures, agriculture, road and trail proliferation, and collection of plants and wildlife. “At the regional level there are increases in activities such as resource extraction, military training and the expansion of transportation and utility corridors.” On a more global scale, dust and pollutants in the area lead to reduced air quality, increased emissions of greenhouse gases, elevated air temperature, and transport of invasive flora and fauna that displace native species.
