BIOMES - ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES - TEMPERATE GRASSLAND:
Biomes have been present long before humans inhabited planet earth. Ever since man became aware of and understood the surroundings, he went into a deep study of the same. The biologists divided the living world into major zones and called it BIOMES. Each biome is a world in itself having its own distinctive climate, plants and animals along with human beings who have become an integral part of every biome. The entire series of biomes has been covered under twelve topics and each topic is in turn divided into two parts to provide in depth knowledge of each biome.
Temperate Grassland grows in the regions where there is not enough rain to form a forest but too much to avoid the formation of a desert. To visualize the Temperate Grasslands of the world just imagine that you are standing alone in the middle of a massive field with grass surrounding you from all sides. There are no fences or hedges to form any kind of boundaries and the grassland appears to spread as far as your eyes can see. Standing in the centre you are now looking at some of the most fertile places on planet Earth. It is a place that bursts with plenty plant life that it has become home to incredible number of animals. Yet Temperate Grasslands are not the best place to live in. The non-stop changing weather and little shelter makes the Temperate Grasslands one of the most challenging places to live in.
This program takes the viewer on a journey of discovery and understanding of Temperate Grassland. It provides a window to look closely at the various aspects of the biome starting from climate of the biome to the future that is in store for it.
This series is not only an endeavor to educate the viewer but also to create awareness about the importance of preserving these biomes in our own small ways before it becomes extinct.
