  1. Savanna Today I will learn about the Savanna because I need to know the characteristics that Scientists use to classify biomes.

  2. General Description • A savanna is a rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees, which can be found between a tropical rainforest and desert biome. • Most savannas have a long dry season and very few trees survive during this time.

  3. Location • Savannas are found in parts of Africa, India, and South America.

  4. Climate and Precipitation • Savannas have a long dry season. During this time, grasses dry out and turn yellow. • Due to the long dry season, there are frequent brush fires that can spread quickly throughout the land. • Average Temperature: • Dry Season: 34°C (93°F) • Wet Season: 16°C (61°F)

  5. Climate and Precipitation • Average Yearly Rainfall: 150 cm (59 in.) • In the Summer there is lots of rain. An average of 15 to 25 inches of rain falls during this time. • However, in the Winter only about 4 inches of rain falls during this time.

  6. Animals • Elephants • Giraffes • Zebras • Wildebeests

  7. Plants • Senegal Gum Acacia • Bermuda Grass • Gum Tree Euclyptus • River Bushwillow

  8. Adaptations • Grasses have deep roots which survive many months without water • The savanna has many large herbivores because they can move around and eat the plentiful grass. • Most of the animals on the savanna have long legs or wings to be able to go on long migrations. • Many burrow under ground to avoid the heat or raise their young.
