Product Description
Grasslands are lands dominated by grasses, rather than large shrubs or trees. There are two main types of grasslands - tropical and temperate. Grasslands are the most widespread biome on land, covering one-fifth of the land surface. Directly or indirectly, grasses provide a very large proportion of human food - either through cultivated cereal grains such as wheat or oats, or by providing food for both wild and domestic animals that are eaten, such as deer or cattle.
The World's Biomes series provides information on five of the most important large ecological systems in the world today: deserts, grasslands, oceans, rainforests, and wetlands. Each book int he series describes the climate, geology, vegetation, and animal life found in a particular biome, as well as the modern threats and what people can do about them.
