What is a SAVANNA BIOME?
* Savanna is a rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees. Not enough rain falls on a savanna to support forests. Savannas are also known as tropical grasslands.

The African Savanna biome is a tropical grassland in Africa between latitude 15° North and 30 degrees S and longitude 15 degrees W and 40° West. It covers Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote D'ivore, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia
A savanna is a flat grass-covered region with scattered shrubs, bushes, and isolated trees, which can be found between a tropical rainforest and desert biome. A savanna is one type of grassland biome. The temperatures of savannas differ according to its season. During the dry season the tem

Grasslands are characterized as lands dominated by grasses rather than large shrubs or trees. In the Miocene and Pliocene Epochs, which spanned a period of about 25 million years, mountains rose in western North America and created a continental...
The savanna is dry and very flat. The soil is porous with rapid drainage of water. The is because the Savanna goes for months without water. This is called a drought. So when the rains come the soil is dry and cracked with low fertility and a thin layer of humus. The average rainfall ranges fro

Tropical Rain Forest::
Tropical rain forests are located closest to te equator. They play a big role in the nitrogen, carbon, and oxygen cycles. Here in the tropical rain forest it is always humid and hot. It gets up to 200-450 c
The Tundra Biome
Being the coldest and least filled with plant life, the tundra biome is noted as frost-molded landscapes with extreme temperatures. The tundra biome has low biotic diversity, low precipitation, and all around low, cold temperatures.

Coral Reef Biome
Though not considered a major biome, coral reefs qualify by definition. Coral reefs are marine ecosystems located within clear, shallow water. These reefs require water between 25 and 31 degrees Celsius, and do well in water with a salinity of 34 and 37 parts per 1
Adaptations of Savanna vegetation.
Savanna vegetation must adapt to survive. Many problems must be overcome, such as lack of water, very seasonal rainfall, poor soil quality, grazing animals, very high temperatures and fire.

This story is one that changed all of our lives. It all started one winter me and my friends were all hanging out at my house and my father was telling us a story about Eldorado.

Global warming occurs when the levels of greenhouse gasses rise and
less infrared light, or heat, escapes the earth's atmosphere. Thus,
the temperature experienced on Earth begins to rise. Climate change

A biome, also known as life zones, consists of all plants, animals, and other organisms, as well the physical environment in a particular area. A biome is characterized by its’ plant life, climate, and location. The climate and physical features determine the boundaries of a biome. A biome is made
Deserts cover about one fifth of the Earth’s surface and occur where rainfall is less than 50 cm/year. While deserts dominate most of the South West of the United States covering over 500,000 square miles, it is the smallest of all desert areas in the world. On the opposite side of the
There are two types of rain forests. But they are both endangered. One type is tropical and it is most commonly found close to the equator. While the other type, the temperate, is most commonly found along the coasts in the temperate zone.

A Biome is a large region of land and/or water characterized by a particular climate. Biomes can be affected by climate and location, the climate of a region because the temperatures and yearly rainfall can effect which organisms are living in that specific biome year round, or what just lives there

There is a lot of constant rainfall in the tropical rainforest. It totals 2413 mm every year. The most rain falls in December (250mm) while the least falls in March (160mm). This large amount of rainfall is caused by the heat. The temperature is fairly constant through
