Occupied by grazing and roaming animals
Rodents include gophers and praire dogs
Carnivores- wolves, coyotes, foxes, badgers, blackfooted ferrets
Birds- meadow lark, quails, sparrows, hawks, owls
Climate grasslands can range from over 100 degrees to -40 degrees
Carrying capacity- Grasslands are able to support massive amounts of grazing and roaming animals because of its vast open plains of grass that is able to keep growing. Even after being chewed down.
Exponential Growth- Nothing much would change if this happened. The animals would just have to move around a little more so the grass can grow back.
Independant factors- Amount of rain that year. How dry it gets that year.
Dependant- Amount of baby grazers that die from carnivores or weakness. Amount of carnivores there are.
3.5 million of them and they're not endangered.
2) waxcap fungi, SN: Hygrocybe calyptriformis, Adaptations: the are able to live on nutrient poor soil. Heterotrophic eukaryote. They are endangered but i couldn't find the number of them.
3) Rhizobium bacteria, Adaptations: Fix themselves to pants in order to get the nutrients they need. Heterotrophic prokaryote. They're bacteria so Thera probably billions of them.
