Prairie grasses have narrow leaves that lose less water to evaporation than broad, flat leaves lose.
Prairie plants have roots that extend downward for as much as 3.5 meters and form networks to absorb moisture during dry periods.
Brightly colored flowers attract bees, wasps, and birds. Microorganisms Zymogenous Organisms- organisms that can easily breakdown matter to fertilize ideal soil for a region like the rolling plains. Limiting factors grasses
flowers Rolling Plains General Climate The rolling plains has a very unique climate. The region usually gets 20 to 30 inches per year with a 64.5F average temperature. It consist of mixed and dry prairies. During the summer it gets very dry which can cause wild fires. Due to this their is very little large tree and has caused plant adaptations. Rolling plains location Producers-wheat and blue grass
consumers- coyotes, rabbits, deer, mice, antelope, foxes, hawks, and snakes Food Chain coyotes to rabbits Environmental Danger predation Warm dry weather can cause large wild
fires, which can disrupt the flow of energy. Also poaching of animals such as coyotes, deer and rabbit can cause even more damage in the environment parasitism
