W HERE ARE WOLVES LOCATED ? Wolves are highly migratorial creatures because they follow their prey wherever it may go, however wolves are mainly located in grasslands and temperate deciduous forest biomes.
W HERE ARE GRASSLAND AND FOREST BIOMES AT ? Teal is forests and Tan is grasslands.
T EMPERATE D ECIDUOUS FORESTS Latitude: 23 ° north to 38 ° south Located primarily in the eastern half of the United States, Canada, Europe, parts of Russia, China, and Japan Average temperature: 75°F (24°C) Precipitation: 2 to 5 feet (0.5-1.5 m) of each year Humidity: 60% to 80%.
G RASSLANDS Latitude: 52° north to 31° south Located primarily in central parts of the United States, Canada, Europe, parts of Russia, China, and south Africa Temperatures: winter low as -40° F, and in summer high as 70° F Rainfall: Average 15 – 35 inches per year Humidity: 50% to 60%

H UMAN I MPACT We use grasslands for farming and raising the cattle and take up the land of other animals that live there. We chop down trees for our houses, paper, pencils and skateboards but we destroy the houses of the animals that live in deciduous forests. GrasslandsDeciduous Forest
I NTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THESE BIOMES The Latin word "Deciduous" means "to fall off“ Has four distinct seasons, winter, spring, summer and fall. North American forests have five times as many species of trees as the forests of Europe. The amount of rainfall determines the height of grasses in the grassland. Go by different names prairie, pampas, steppe, outback,highveld, and campo. They have some of the world's richest soils. Deciduous forestGrasslands
