Transcript of Savannah
The Austrailian Savanna is 75-80 degrees and is cooler as wel.l in the dry season, and goes down to around 70 degrees. The average winds of the savanna is as fallows on this map, and is about 5 meters per second generally in all areas of the Savanna. Is a grassy flatland covered in tall grass and shrubs. Most lie between rainforest and deserts. The soil in most Savannas are very very low in nutrients and very porous. They have a this layer of nutrients called humus. Savanna soil in some areas have large iron oxide deposits giving it a redish brownish colour. The terrain of the savanna is covered by shrubs and grass with multiple trees covering it too. The grass in some areas can grow up to 10 feet and would make it very hard to pass through these areas. The savanna doesn't have a very vibrant colour scheme and in the dry season the grass turns brown. There are natural sediments throughout the savanna but they are not defined by this. There are 21,000 Lions in Africa
There has been a large decrease in lions since the 1950s
There are 750,000 Zebras all together in the plains of Africa.
Due to hunting a poaching of the lions the population of them has gone down quite a bit meaing they have an abundance fo food. The Zebra population has gone down and some are endangered but over all supplies the lions with adequte food. Due to the large amount of human activity in the afican savanna with some of the coal burning and the brutal ecological imperialism humans have displayed for the land in Africa as of late could cause some major shifts in the system of ecology there.
