Temperate Grassland

Prentiss Albert


Temperate grasslands have hot summer and cold winters. Summer temperatures can be well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures can be as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit. They typically have between 10 and 35 inches of precipitation a year, much of it occurring in the late spring and early summer. Snow often severs as a resevior of moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Seasonal drought and occasional fires help maintain these grasslands.
