North American Grasslands

Biome Research



Name of BiomeGeography & Climate

  • Location: American Prairie Grassland

  • Description: land dominated by climax communities grass and a few trees

  • Soil type: fertile and rich

  • Precipitation:10-30 inches per-year

  • Climate: hot summers, cold and snowy winters; various changes in seasons

Name of BiomeBiodiversity

  • Plant species: tall grass, mixed grass, short grass, corn, wheat, flowering plants.

  • Animal species: pronghorn, antelope, mule, deer, elk, black bears, foxes, badgers, black-footed ferrets, rabbits, burrowing owl, eagles, hawks, grouse, ducks, birds, small insects, and snakes.

    This is a North American prairie fox.

Name of BiomeAdaptations Needed for Survival

  • Plant adaptations: grass- wildfires periodically destroys dry grass and encourages new growth. Deep roots to hold grass is the soil.

  • Animal adaptations-burrowing helps animals to survive.

Name of BiomeInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic

  • Biotic- burrowing animals, grass, birds.

  • Abiotic -dirt, water, and air.

What is Biodiversity?

  • Biodiversity-a variety of life. It can be studied on many different levels. At the highest level, you can look at all the different species o the entire earth. On a much smaller scale you can study biodiversity within a pond or a neighbrohood park.

How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem?

  • Biodiversity allows us to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. Its provides us with an array of foods and materials and it contributes to the economy.
