Central tall grasslands

WWF Abstract

The Central Tall Grasslands are the wettest of the North American grasslands, receiving about 39 inches (100 cm) of rain each year. Plenty of rain and a long growing season create lush conditions for plants. The Central Tall Grasslands must have been one of the most beautiful ecoregions of North America in its original state--until large-scale conversion to farmland.
