Transcript of Texas Our Texas: Rolling and High Plains

The major water source is ground water. Texas Our Texas Rolling & High Plains Texas Climate in the rolling and high plains is generally dry. Temperature:
The summer temperature ranges in the upper 90s (degrees Fahrenheit.) Or 32.2222 degrees Celsius. The temperature ranges in the winter are in the low 20s (degrees Fahrenheit.) Or -6.66666 degrees Celsius Surface Water:
The Baylor Lake, Bivins Lake, Buffalo Lake, Greenbelt Lake, Meredith Lake, Rita Blanca Lake, White River Lake, Palo Duro Reservoir, Mackenzie Reservoir, and Alan Henry Reservoir are some of the surface water. The Canadian, Red, Pecos, Brazos, and Colorado river basins are also part of the rolling and high plains surface water.
Surface water does change with the seasons. The plains also have droughts. Ground Water/ Aquifers:
The Ogallala, Seymour, Dockum, Blaine, Rita Blanca, Nacotoch, Alluvium, Cenozoic,Pecos, and Edwards Trinity are aquifers in the high and rolling plains.
The groundwater and aquifers does change with the seasons. The plains also have droughts. WED Affects: The Palo Duro Canyon was formed by a fork of the Red River (water erosion.) It was formed by wind erosion too.
Weathering- Wind and water weathering.
Erosion- Wind and water erosion.
Deposition- Sediments are deposited into different areas of the eco-region Some of meandering rivers are the Red River and the Canadian River. Prezi made by: Ashley Eng, Tammie Huynh, Vy Nguyen, Mandy Truong Works Cited

Tornados: (yes) "Weaken structure of plain, damage homes."
Hurricanes: (no)
Floods: (no)
Forest Fires: (yes) " Less food, cover from heat (won't be any plants), animals die."
Earthquakes: (yes) "Ground shift, homes destroyed, food shortage." Other Places Catastrophic Events Occur:
Tornados: Gulf Coast, Piney Woods They have a wing spand of 25-32cmm, and can fly up to 12 miles per hour.
They have very good eyesight
They have three toes in the front and in the back which are used for perching on a brsnch or pole.
Their short slim beaks are used for multiple things. They have sharp incisors, which help them comsume the tough plants in the prairie region.
Their hind legs help them stand on two feets like humans.
They use their tough claws to bulid their "towns"
Their acute vision allows them to see any predators hiding in tall grass.
They camoflage which allows them to hide from predators. The Bird of The Rolling and High Plains The Mammal of Rolling and High Plains Prairie Dog Eastern Bluebird Anphiban of Rolling and High Plains They have an upturned upper lip which aids them when they're digging in soil.
They can also tolerate very dry conditions. Plains Hognose Snake Flowers of Rolling And High Plains Acacia Sugarberry The Population of The Rolling and High Plains is About 717,470. Pioneer Species is the first species to colonize land that was previously uncolonized.
Ex. Lichen ,moss, etc.

Climax Community is an ecological community where populations of plants or animals stay stable and live in balance with each other and with their environment. Also climax community is the last stage in succession.
Ex. A fully grown bur oak tree, Cottonwood, etc. Difference for ecosystem and biome
Ecosystem: All the living organisms that live in an area and the nonliving features of their environment.
Biome: Is a large geographic area: deserts, temperate, rainforests, grassland. Producer:
