Central Great Plains
Plants that grow well are mainly grasses. Crops are also grown in the central plains.
Most grasses are perennials and are rhyzominous. The plants store nutrients in their roots. The roots are bunched together to hold water in the soil.
There are a wide variety of animals. Coyotes, badgers, birds, deer, snakes, cougars, and bison are a some animals that live here.
Most mammals have reddish or brownish fur to blend into their habitat. Birds make their nest out of mud and grass.
Humans have impacted the Great Plains mostly through agriculture. In the 1930's the Dust Bowl affected the ecosystems.
