- Plants: Many of the plants in the Grassland are obviously grasses, some examples are Blue Grama, Buffalo grass, big blue stem and little blue stem.
- Flowers: There are flowers in the grasslands some are the purple cone flower and the blazing star
- Plant Adaptions:
- The soil is very rich in the grassland therefore the plant are able to grow but there are many wild fires that destroys plants often.
- Prairie trees have adapted to wild fires and now they have thicker bark to resist fire.
- There is a lot of wind in the grassland therefore the grasses have adapted to have soft stems so they bend and not break in the wind.
- The grass has adapted to not have much water by have narrow leaves instead of broad leaves because the loose less water.
- The roots in the grass have adapted to get more water by have extended deep to the soil the get more water in the rich soil
- Animals adaptions:
- Animals have adapted to not get killed by their predators
- Animals have adapted to the heat to survive.
- The animals have adapted to the limited water
- They have adapted and gotten better at hunting and traking their speed and sneakiness of there prey
- They have adapted to warn eachother of endangering situations.
- Cooperation: An example is species of animals warning the rest of his herd.
- Competion: An example is when a lion kills a zebra and then a hyna come and try's to steal it and then they compete for the zebra
- Wildfires have been a threat to the grasslands for years. Wildfires have destroyed many plants and destroyed animals shelter which affects all the animals lives. Which endangers animals, currently the Mexican prairie "marmot" dog and the grevy's zebra. This biome id importante for all the animals and the vegetation that is all over the world.
