Summary Many animals live in the deserts of Australia and survive without drinking water. This research examined desert adaptations in the Spinifex hopping mouse (Notomys alexis), and is the first study to demonstrate how many genes and exzymes in the kidney are controlled to maintain water balance in the absence of drinking water.
