Biome Grasslands

1) A grassland is a region where the average annual precipitation is great enough to support grasses, and in some areas a few trees. 2)In the winter, grassland temperatures can be as low as -40° F, and in the summer it can be as high 70° F. 3)Plants usually start growing when the daily temperature reached about 50° F.

Grassland biomes are large, rolling terrains of grasses, flowers and herbs. Latitude, soil and local climates for the most part determine what kinds of plants grow in a particular grassland. Being that it is a grassland, not many trees are found in the biome. When they do appear, it is always near sources of water. The soil though, is very fertile. Making grasslands a perfect home for many species of plants. biomes can be found in the middle latitudes, in the interiors of continents. They can have either moist continental climates or dry subtropical climates. In Argentina, South America, the grasslands are known as pampas. The climate there is humid and moist. Grasslands in the southern hemisphere tend to get more precipitation than those in the northern hemisphere, and the grass tends to be the tall-grass variety.There is a large area of grassland that stretch from the Ukraine of Russia all the way to Siberia. This is a very cold and dry climate because there is no nearby ocean to get moisture from. Winds from the arctic aren't blocked by any mountains either. These are known as the Russian and Asian steppes
