Grasslands flora & fauna

  1. 1. GRASSLANDS FLORA & FAUNA
  2. 2. • There are two different kinds of grasslands: tropical and temperate. Grasslands in the southern hemisphere tend to get more precipitation than those in the northern hemisphere. • Grasslands are characterized as lands dominated by grasses rather than large shrubs or trees.
  3. 3. TEMPERATE GRASSLANDS • Temperate Grasslands have different names in different countries – The Veld of Africa – The Steppes of Central Eurasia – Surrounding areas of Australia – The Pampas of South America – The Prairies of North America • Compared to the savanna, the diversity of animal species is less in temperate grasslands.
