    To be because of?

    My teacher gave us a sentence:
    The desert have been growing with terrible speed which is partly because of natural changes but the greatest desert maker is humans.

    "Is partly because of" I can understand the meaning but what is the structure of this?
    To be because of? in this case, what type of word is "because of"? Is it an adjective?

    Because is a conjunction, because of is a preposition.
