Coniferous all the way We have a mix here in S Cal but the sound of the whipping ripping through pine just can't be beat. Once you see a Giant Redwood it will leave you awe struck.

Desert flora is extremely interesting to me, too. I love both types of scenery (forest and desert), there is much beauty to be found in both. I have over 15 species of cacti at home just because I love em so much. Ive even travelled all over Illinois in search of our 3 native cacti species, and have found many locales that can support them here in IL, so I get the best of both worlds!

yeah...see desert is really kool when it's a real desert. Out here all we have is farmland and nothing else but suburbs also.... Like Arizona... it's a really Unique place to visit because it's just so different from Most places in the US.

Deciduous? No way. They just remind me of being in a park or on some upper-middle class neighborhood in a cheesy family movie. Coniferous forests are quite preferable.

I actually prefer NM's deserts to AZ's.

Coniferous forest, as a climax vegetation, sustains very little speciation. It is a nearly-dead environment, with extremely weak and inert soil. If you clearcut coniferous forest, you basicly have a wasteland left behind. If you clearcut deciduous, it is very fertile.

I'm with the desert people. America's deserts have a rich and varied population of plant and animal species.

Depends on where youre at. Would I rather be in drab Nevada's central desert or in Irish countryside farmland? IRELAND ANY DAY!!!!! Some areas of the desert are sooooo flat and soooooo desolate that its beyond lame. If that was the case, give me farmland any day. But if youre talking about central Kansas farms over the Chihuhuan Desert? Ill take the desert.

Make sense?
