Transcript of Grassland Biome

grassland Biome
Types of animals / Biotic Factors
Types of plants
African wild dog
Has long legs to chase their prey for long amounts of time.
Caracal
The tufts on the ears help it to pin point where its prey is.
sharptailed grouse
They have sharp talons and feet to keep hold of their prey.
duiker
Duikers are relitivly small with tiny ears and backward facing horns.
Map of the Grasslands
They can be found all over the world.
big bluestem
Grows in dense stands, this keeps many other harmful plants (weeds) from growing.
purple cone flower
The bright colors of this plant attract many butterfies and bees.Not only is it for nature it also has medical uses,such as improving the White Blood Cell count in your body.

Activities
Hiking is very popular in the Grasslands. White Water rafting is also popular along the tropical savanna in Africa. Wild life Safaris are among the most popular.
blue grama
In it's dormant state Blue Grama can resist burning.
the Blazing Star
This plant lives for a short time on its own, but the many clusters of bright petals, or buds, attract many bees in the wild.
Abiotic factors
Water, Air, Soil, and Sunlight are
important
to all Biomes and living things.
points of interest
Brazil's cerrado is a open shortland of trees and animals, species that are not found anywhere else on Earth.
The Giraffe feeding center in Kenya Africa allows people to come up close to Giraffes to feed and pet them.
cooperation
Zebra and wildebeest alert each other to the presence of predators.
Competition
Hippos and Crocodiles compete for a decent stretch of river or pool.
nearby Biomes
Deserts ,or the dry lands, are found close to the grassland biome. this biome has little to no water and is
extremely hot.
Temprate Forests are also found close to the Grassland Biome. These forests have four seasons through out the year.
average weather
Precipitation: About 50.8 cm. per month. (In the wet season)
Temperature: 40 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

WHAT TO PACK?
Due to the average temperature of the Grasslands you would want to pack: T-shirt, shorts, a light jacket , and tennis shoes. Suplies: food, water bottle,small bag, camera.
how would climate change impact our biome?
This is what would happen to our biome if the climate changed. It would effect all living things in the Grasslands. For example, if it got colder the animals with little to no hair would suffer a great downfall in their species. Most plant life can not survive in the cold and would die. With no
producers
the food web would disappear leaving no species left in our biome.
WHY OUR BIOME IS IMPORTANT.
First, our state Oklahoma is part of the Grassland,(prairie) if our biome did not exist we would not live here. Also much of Africa is in the major part of the Grasslands. Many of the species we see today would not exist. We would never see a Cheetah run, or a Zebra's beautiful stripes, or see a Scissor Tail fly. Therefore effecting not just our biome but
all
biomes everywhere.
endangered species
- Asian Elephant
The threats to this Biome

Development
Developments are a threat to the grasslands. If people start to over populate they will cut down the grass leaving the herbivores with nothing to eat. This will leave nothing for the carnivores,there for effecting the food chain. Dissrupting the biome.
- Northern Hairy-Nosed Wombat
- West African Giraffe
- Black Rhinocerous
Producer: The first part of all food chains and the one that makes the energy.
WE DID IT!!!
YAY!
