Birds perch on a cactus as a gray fox warily stands below in Chile’s Atacama Desert. Rain rarely falls on the Atacama’s coastline, but dense fog known as camanchaca is abundant. The fog nourishes plant communities from cactuses to ferns.

智利阿塔卡马沙漠里,鸟栖停在仙人掌上,一只灰狐警惕地站在下面。阿塔卡马的海岸线上降雨非常稀少,但浓湿雾却非常丰富。雾水滋养着这里从仙人掌到蕨类所有的植被。
