Into the Savannah
Transcript of Into the Savannah
Where in the world
is the savanna?
When I hear the word Savanna I think of Africa; Although, Africa isn't the only place where a Savanna is found. This biome is found in large parts of eastern Africa, southern Brazil, and northern Australia. Also any where near/between the Desert and the Tropical Rainforest is where you'll find the Savanna.
Deep in the Savanna
Many organisms live/survive in the Savannah.
Black Mamba Snake
Predator vs. prey
The Savanna is a home for many plants and animals who, face many dangers each day. Predation is a factor in every animals life no matter what they are or who they are danger always lurks. Examples of predation can be as simple as the way a lion hunts down a gazelle for food; a more complex situation would be parasitistic relationship. This relationship where Rattles lives on the roots of grasses is like the same in which one organism benefits while the other suffers but more complex.
Abiotic or biotic
You can find warm temperatures and seasonal rainfall to be the biggest abiotic factors. Both contribute to productivity and the reduction in the Savanna. Rainfall prevents Savanna areas from turning into dry forests as well as warm temperatures regulate a balance so this biome won't dry out/lead to dessert conditions (this activity is mostly seen in the southern part of Africa).
Abiotic or Biotic
The events of biotic factors vary from Competition, Dispersal, Human Intervention, and Predation. Human Intervention is the way in which humans adjust the way that particular ecosystem runs. Also, long term conditions could lead to the reason for exciton to certain animals and their habitat. The result of Ddispersal truly depends on animals, weather, or plants. If seeds fail to germinate it may effect vegetation and lessen resources of nourishment needed to live.

River Bush Willow
Mongoose- loose dense fur which helps prevent venom from a snake bite to get in their blood stream, strong eyesight for night hunting
Smaller animals bury themselves in the ground to escape fire by digging and hiding underground.
Candelabra Tree- spiky outside and poisonous sap which can blind you and give you burns to protect it against any predators.
River Bush Willow- roots of the River Bush Willow are long so it can get more water from deeper into the ground
Exotic plants are a big threat to the Savanna Biome. Giant rat’s tail grass, Prickly Pear, and Rubbervine can lead to harm towards the environment. These un-native plants compete with those native for a source of food and water or can sometimes lead to frequent fires. Although, the climate is a good factor for the Savanna, climate change is another threat to the Savanna just like any biome. Because of this the Savanna to many people may become a home for a more woody plant area.
