What is the Difference between a Temperate and tropical grassland?
The difference between a Temperate and Tropical grassland is location, soil, vegetation and precipitation. Tropical grasslands are a transition between a desert and a tropical rainforest. Tropical grasslands have more rainfall than temperate grasslands. The tropical grasslands for example the African Savanna has a constant temperature all year around, on the other hand the temperate grassland's temperature is not constant. Temperate Grasslands tend to have more green vegetation while tropical grasslands tend to be more dry and brown like colour vegetation.
