Road Wild Plants

It would be interesting to monitor wild plants that show up on the sides of desert roads in Egypt. They appear in very interesting patterns as if they had been planted deliberately. Their spacing and distribution is striking. It would be interesting to see their dispersion patterns, when do they grow and when do they die out and in which locations they are distributed. It would be nice to see how they get water, is it from the sparse rain or from the humidity caused by human activity or from other sources or a combination of sources and factors. It would also be interesting to check out their species and how such species are distributed and if there exists communities and if there are animals or other organisms that form communities with them.

Take photos of wild plants dispersed on the sides of roads in Egypt.
