What is tropical grassland/savanna and where in the world is it?

Tropical grassland/savanna is not to be confused with desert. While they share similar qualities, they are not the same biome.

Savanna is a grassland with scattered shrubs and trees. They have warm temperatures year round and two distinct seasons: a dry season(winter) and a very wet season (summer). In the dry period an average of only about 4 inches of rain falls.  The temperature year round is about 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  Most of Africa has savannas/tropical grasslands.  Some animals seen in the African Savannas are lions, zebras, elephants, giraffes, and more. 

A Climatogram is the representation of elements of climate of an area. (Like temperature and precipitation) Climatograms are important because they helped

to display all of the climate in one graph.  Abiotic and biotic factors make up all biomes.  Abiotic factors are non-living factors, such as rainfall and temperature.  Biotic factors are living things, such as plants an animals.  In the savanna biome, an abiotic factor would be the yearly temperature of about 70 degrees.  Some biotic factors would be like zebras and the shrubs that grow in savannas.
