For tribes that inhabited desert areas (e.g. Arabian Peninsula, Sahara, etc...), there seems to have been a problem: a good bow would likely require materials that would be hard to come by in the desert (wood from trees).
Is there an evidence that this was indeed a factor influencing the use of bow and arrows as military technology by tribes living in such conditions?
If that's not the case, what did they use as far as materials to make the bows? The arrows?
I would prefer an answer that references a generic research that shows analysis across cultures, but would be OK with answer that cover a single tribe/culture. However, it must be one that did NOT have easy access to wood for bows (e.g. Levant area doesn't count, obviously, despite having some desert landscape).
