Overview

Temperate Grasslands by Ben Hoare

Biologists divide the living world into major zones called biomes, including deserts, oceans, tropical forests, and tundra. Looking at biomes helps us understand the connections between our planet's climate and the plants and animals that live there. Biomes also have a huge impact on people. Each book reveals the fascinating web of relationships between climate, plants, animals, and people that makes every biome unique.
