Grassland

By: Jaihven Emerson

Biome Description

Grasslands are found on either side of two desert belts that rotate around earth. About one quarter of the earth land is in the grasslands.

Abiotic Factors

There is so many types of grasslands in the world. Some of them are tropical and some of them are dry grasslands. Temperatures in this Biome vary greatly between Summer and Winter. The summers are obviously hot and winters are cold and much

Biotic Factors

Grasses dominate temperature. Trees and large shrubs are rarely found in grassland areas. There are many species of grasses that live in this biome, including, purple needle grass, wild oats, foxtail, ryegrass, and buffalo grass. All grasslands share a lack of shelter from predators, and an abundance of grass for food. Bison, antelope, birds, gophers, prairie dogs, coyotes, and insects all live in a grassland.

Ecological concerns

The rich soil is ideal for farming and grazing. With continual agriculture development and progress we have lost many of our natural grasslands. Rain occurs a lot.
