Includes bibliographical references and index Discusses through short essays and poems, ten endangered species that live in grasslands or deserts, including scientific information about each, reasons for its endangered status, and descriptions of efforts to protect itPages: Grassland biomes are unaltered areas of land where grass is the dominant plant life, as opposed to other terrestrial biomes where trees occupy most of the land surface. Grassland are found around the globe and have served as grazing areas for a large number of animals, and have been exploited as farming grounds or plantations by humans.
There are eight major terrestrial biomes: tropical rainforests, savannas, subtropical deserts, chaparral, temperate grasslands, temperate forests, boreal forests, and Arctic tundra. Biomes are large-scale environments that are distinguished by characteristic temperature ranges and amounts of precipitation. These two variables affect the types Author: Matthew R.

Biotic Factors: Plants-Milkweed, Indian Grass, Purple ConeflowerAnimals-Bumble Bee, Badger, CoyoteAbiotic Factors: Average precipitation inchesAverage temperature degrees FahrenheitSoil types-Black soil, Clay soil, Lateric, LoessHuman Interaction: Many humans live in the grassland biome.
Humans exploit the grasslands by farming and urban development, and hunting. The grassland biome is defined by large expanses of grasses. The three types of grasslands are tall grasslands with grasses up to five feet tall, short grasslands with grasses 8 to inches tall and mixed grasslands.

Grassland climates are varied, but all large regions of natural grassland are generally hot, at least in summer, and dry, though not to the extent that deserts are.
In general, tropical grasslands receive to 1, millimetres (20 to 60 inches) of rain in an average year and in every season experience temperatures of about 15 to 35 °C ( Continued global warming could turn current marginal grasslands into deserts as rainfall patterns change.
Development of urban areas is increasingly cutting into grassland habitat. Discusses through short essays and poems, ten endangered species that live in grasslands or deserts, including scientific information about each, reasons for its.

Two main kinds of. Desert Grasses. Thomas R. Van Devender and Mark A. Dimmitt. The grass family Poaceae (also known as Gramineae) has s species and to genera.
Only the sunflower (Asteraceae, or Compositae), legume (Fabaceae, or Leguminosae), and orchid (Orchidaceae) families are larger. The book describes how the intrusion of humans on the grasslands in the prairies and deserts of North America causes many animals and plants to disappear.
Decades after this loss, a scientist happens upon an area in Mexico I'd give this one a /5.Deserts and xeric shrublands are a habitat type defined by the World Wide Fund for Nature. Deserts and xeric shrublands form the largest terrestrial biome, covering 19% of Earth's land surface area.
Ecoregions in this habitat type vary greatly in the amount of annual rainfall they receive, usually less than millimetres (10 in) annually except in the margins.Cold Desert's plants are scattered. In areas with little shade,about 10 percent of the ground is covered with plants.
In some areas of sagebrush it reaches 85 percent. The height of scrub varies from 15 cm to cm. All plants are either deciduous and more or less contain spiny leaves.
Hot and Dry Deserts animals include small.
