The temperate grasslands are located north and south of the tropics and extend to approximately 60 degrees north and south.
Temperate grasslands are located in the following areas:
Central North America (Canada, USA)
South America (Argentina)
Africa (South Africa)
Europe (Russia, Ukraine)
Temperate grasslands are located in these moderate places because all abiotic and biotic features match to criteria of a temperate grassland.
The Tropical grassland biome, are located between the tropics of Cancer (23.4 degrees North) and Capricorn (23.4 degrees South).
Tropical grasslands are located in the following areas:
North America (USA)
South America ( Argentine, Brazil, Bolivia, Uruguay)
Africa ( Kenya, Uganda, Congo, South Africa)
Asia ( China, Pakistan Afghanistan, Mongolia)
Tropical grasslands are located in listed regions of the world because each of the areas have characteristics that meet the requirements of a tropical grassland. The temperature is right and the area receives the right amount of precipitation.
Why are grasslands located in Canada?
Grasslands are located in several locations throughout Canada such as Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Grasslands are located here because there are many abiotic and biotic features that can support the growth of a grassland. For example the latitude affects the temperature and the amount of sunlight the biome receives. Canada receives a moderate amount of sunlight which the animals and vegetation have become accustomed to. The sunlight help vegetation grow in the biome. Furthermore, the interior of Canada has little elevation and is far away from the ocean which associates with how the climate acts in the grasslands. In addition the soil found in the interior of Canada is very fertile which allows a temperate grassland to grow. Since the interior of Canada's elevation, climate, and effect of ocean currents complement each other in terms to help create and sustain a temperate grassland.
