Life in the Tropical GrasslandsBook - 2005
Perfectly suited for today's science curriculum, this series explores life in the biomes and habitats around the globe. Each book examines ecological regions and important environmental concepts. Readers will learn about Earth's plants and animals that inhabit those regions. The savanna, or tropical grasslands, is a habitat where hot temperatures and grasses dominate. Life in tropical grasslands revolves around the rain. Eating, sleeping, mating, and giving birth all revolve around precipitation. Even the seasons are determined by rainfall instead of temperature. And there are only two: the rainy season and the dry season. This book takes the reader to the savannas and introduces them to the plants and animals that make these grasslands their home.
