Biome: Shrub Land By: Diana Ramirez Uriel Lucero Jesus Lopez
Shrub lands usually get more rain than deserts and grasslands but less than forested areas. Shrub lands typically receive between 200 to 1,000 millimeters of rain a year. This rain is unpredictable, varying from month to month. The shrub lands are made up of shrubs or short trees. Many shrubs thrive on steep, rocky slopes. There is usually not enough rain to support tall trees. Shrub lands are usually fairly open so grasses and other short plants grow between the shrubs. SHRUB LAND KEY FEATURES
HUMAN BENEFITS Humans can and have used shrubs as resources such as for: Medicine Food Beverages
