Temperate grasslands have a temperate continental climate, which is cooler than savannas. Temperate grasslands have warm, humid summers with an average temperature of 18° C and cool, dry winters with an average temperature of 10° C. Most of the rain falls as convection rain in the Summer and sometimes frost and snow may occur in the winter.

Vegetation of the Grassland
They are only grass and some small shrubs in the grassland. Due to this the animals there are usually either burrows or relatively small.
The positive-There really isn't any positive impact that I could find in the grassland.
The negative- We have hunted down the animals of the grassland and destroyed some of there habitats into almost extinction . Some animals were killed for meat, fur or in the case of elephants there tusks.
