Description
A mature introduction to grassland biomes around the world. Defines grassland in terms of rainfall or precipitation that occurs in a 6-8 month period, including in the definition grasslands, prairie, steppes and veldts. Divides grasslands into temperate and tropical grasslands with drought and floods being the main problems in these areas. Observes that floods and fires are natural cycles that preserve, rather than destroy, grasslands. Plants and animals have developed survival patterns adapted to a short growing period. Explains that herbivores dominate this biotic community but the biomass of small animals such as insects outweighs that of herbivores. Grassland evironments are credited with giving our ancestors predictable supplies of food that made the Arts possible. Lichens and algae are essential to the preservation of grasslands. Cultivation of crops, is renewed by cycles of irrigation.
