Grassland Biome Facts
Grassland biomes are made mostly of grasses. They are said to be between a forest and a desert when it
comes to rainfall. They do not receive enough rainfall to grow trees like a forest but they contain lots of
grass so they receive more rain than a desert.
Grasslands are also known as prairies, pampas, steppes, and savannas.
Grassland biomes are normally situated between a forest and a desert. In fact, grasslands surround
every desert in Asia.
Twenty-five percent of the Earth is covered by the grassland biome.
There is a grassland biome on each continent with the exception of Antarctica.
Tropical grassland biomes are located in the Southern Hemisphere while temperate grassland biomes
are located in the Northern Hemisphere.
The grasses in the tropical grassland biome tend to be taller than that of the temperate because of the
constant warm weather and additional rainfall it receives.
Since grassland biomes have rich soil, much of them are used for farming. There is only 2% of the
original grassland left in North America.
