    As you move from east to west, the rainfall in the prairies decreases. The closer the prairie is to a mountain, the more rainfall it will get. Tall grassland tends to grow in the wetter parts.

More than forty percent of our country was once open prairie, grassland that extended from Missouri to Montana.

Forest Service. Grasslands are literally the lungs of the earth, and restoring them with animals is not only necessary, but it's the most efficacious way to restore water cycles and the carbon cycle.

Right now, nothing else comes close to remediating broken ecological systems as quickly or completely as restoring large herds of grazing animals through holistic.

Each of the Dakota Prairie Grasslands has a flavor all its own. The tallgrass prairie on the rolling hills of the Sheyenne National Grasslands are a significant contrast to the stark badlands found in the Little Missouri National Grasslands.

James T. Nichols, one of its by: The prairie biome is a fascinating place, with grass as its main source of vegetation. This area of grassland is typically located between a forest and a desert and may have a tropical or temperate climate, depending on its continent.

A wide range of animals and birds live in the prairie biome. Prairie grass roots are very good at reaching water very far down under the surface, and they can live for a very long time. Grains are a type of grass, so the prairie grassland is perfect for growing grain like wheat, rye, and oats.

North American prairie grass is usually split into three different groups: wet, mesic, and dry.

The prairie grasslands begin with the Great Plains at the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains and extend all the way to the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern part of the country. The Rocky Mountains prevent moist air from moving over the Great Plains, and this "rain shadow" helps to keep the prairie grasslands extremely dry.

Today's featured National Grassland, Dakota Prairie, is actually four grasslands in both North Dakota and South Dakota operated by one agency.

The four different units include three in North Dakota - Little Missouri National Grassland, Cedar River National Grassland, and Sheyenne National Grassland as well as Grand River National Grassland in South Dakota.

Not every grassland is a prairie, but a prairie is most certainly a grassland, as are pastures, rangelands, hayland and any other large expanse of mostly treeless landscape covered in green.

People sometimes see grasslands as empty or unexciting, and it often takes a closer inspection to appreciate all the birds, mammals and insects that depend on grassland for their existence.

Experts don't agree on definitions of "plains" and "prairie." Some use them interchangeably. I prefer "prairie" for the moister eastern third, "plains" for the central and western areas. Tall grasses such as big bluestem, Indian grass, and switchgrass flourished on the prairie, growing horse-high in midsummer.Grasses are the most common plants in grasslands, but there are many types, and grasslands are not all the same.

The grasslands include prairies, steppes, pampas, savanna, tropical grasslands of South America, Australian grasslands, and upland grasslands.
