Human Impact

The impact that human make on temperate grasslands is generally positive. Grasslands are important for raising livestock, so many humans want to keep this valuable biome. To do this, people often set fire to maintain and extend the grasslands; the fires prevent trees and shrubs to grow and to disrupt the prairie. Cutting the grass and allowing livestock to graze, as well as the area's natural climate, also help maintain the environment of these grasslands.
