  • Although tall-grass prairie once broadly covered the middle of the United States, this biome is now estimated to be at least 99% destroyed from pre-settlement by pioneers, who converted it for agricultural uses.

    1. 1. North America Map Three Central States and Provinces
    2. 2. States: Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri
    3. 3. Prairie Provinces Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba
    4. 4. Rio Grande
    5. 5. Red River
    6. 6. Arkansas River
    7. 7. Missouri River
    8. 8. Mississippi River
    9. 9. Mississippi River Drainage Basin
    10. 10. Mississippi River The Mississippi drains most of the area between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains. It runs through two states — Minnesota and Louisiana — and was used to define the borders of eight states (the river has since shifted) — Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Mississippi — before emptying into the Gulf of Mexico about 100 miles (160 km) downstream from New Orleans.
    11. 11. • Rivers • North America has a very large river system in the Mississippi-Missouri-Ohio • The Missouri and Ohio rivers flow into the Mississippi, thus making them tributaries of the Mississippi
    12. 12. Pecos River
    13. 13. Rocky Mountains Commonly defined to stretch from the Liard River in British Columbia, down to the Rio Grande in New Mexico. The mountains can also be considered to run to Alaska or Mexico, but usually those mountains are considered to be part of the entire American cordillera, rather than part of the Rockies.
    14. 14. • The Rockies are young scamps that haven’t faced the extra 320 million years of erosion that the Appalachians have suffered and so are much taller.
    15. 15. Rocky Mountain September
    16. 16. Great Plains The broad expanse of prairie which lies east of the Rocky Mountains in the United States of America and Canada.
    17. 17. Great Plains In the Prairies ecozone, rivers and streams are slow moving, usually with muddy bottoms. There are few lakes, but many marshes and small shallow ponds.
    18. 18. The Great Plains cover the center of the continent.
    19. 19. prairie The prairie biome is a plant community dominated by grasses and non-grassy herbs with some woody shrubs and occasional trees.
    20. 20. Great Plains grasslands Mid-grass prairie near Manhattan, Kansas Temperate grasslands are characterized by hot summers and cold winters. Evaporation rate is high, so little rain makes it into the rich soil.
