Transcript of Temperate Grasslands
CREATED BY: Katie Kleeberger
The temperature vary greatly from summer months to winter months. The temperatures can reach up too 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. Surprisingly, the summer months are also the wettest months of the year, even though rainfall is very unusual. The temperate grasslands usually only receives about 20 - 35 inches annually. The left over wetness from the summer mouths is then turned into a thin layer of snow during the winter months, Wild feilds are a new thing in the this area, but is quit usual and helps keep the soil full of lots of nutrients.
Problems faced and Salutations fro problems in the Temperate Grasslands:
The most obvious problem faced today on the temperate grasslands are wildfires. Most wild fires are not started purposely but most are accidents. Same on the other hand are because of nature and is then needed to clear land and continue to make the soil nice and rich. But one way we, as humans, could prevent wild fires would be by being more careful and be cautious of what fires we leave untammed.

Soil and Description:
The name the, temperate grasslands, is a great description for what it is like here. The grasses are the most important plant grown in this biome. Also the temperate grasslands have some of the darkest, most nutrients filled soils in the world, therefore these lands are usually used for farming.
Location of Global Temperate Grasslands
As you can tell temeprate grasslands are located all over the globe. However, wherever you are located, you may hear different nicknames for the biome. For example, temperate grasslands are called prairies in North America. In Eurasia temperate grasslands are known as steppes. In South America they are called pampas. And finally in South Africa temperate grasslands are known as veldts
Throughout the temperate grasslands there is little diversity but large numbers of the animals living there. Grass is the main vegetation on this biome. Due to seasonal droughts, and migrating animals there is a lack of trees and shrubs. On the bright side, ther eis many different kinds of flowers located on this seemingly endless plains.
Seen above are no strangers to the temperate grasslands. These furry mammoths are found feasting on the grass of the endless plains.
The Purple Cone Flower is a beautiful plant that blooms in the mid-summer, early fall, and mid-fall. The Purple Cone Flower can grow up too 3 to 5 feet, to height of a small child.
The picture above shows a mild case of a wild fire.
