An extensive tract of level or rolling land, destitute of trees, covered with coarse grass, and usually characterized by a deep, fertile soil. They abound throughout the Mississippi valley, between the Alleghanies and the Rocky mountains.
A meadow or tract of grass; especially, a so called natural meadow.
a large area of grassland.
Land predominately covered in grasses.
dominant tall grasses, widespread in continental climate regions
a biome with a wide array of certain mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, grasses, flowers, fungi, a few specialized trees, and the soil on which these things live and grow
a complex natural community covered with a dense mixture of tall grasses and other herbaceous plants
a mostly treeless landscape dominated by grasses
an ecological community made up of native grasses and wildflowers
an extensive area of flat grassland, like in the middle of North America
an open grassland that occurs in relatively dry climates where precipitation is too low to support trees
a region of flat, gently sloping, or hilly land covered chiefly by tall grasses and not many trees
a stretch of unmarked grass, rolling on pretty much flat for miles and miles and miles
a temperate grassland, plains of grass that get hot in the Moles are almost-blind, burrowing mammals
a temperate grassland, plains of grass that get hot in the summer and cold in the winter
a type of grassland
a wet grassland that develops on clay soil
Ecosystem dominated by grasses and wildflowers.
An extensive area of flat or rolling grassland, especially the plains of North Central America.
A plant community dominated by a diversity of perennial, herbaceous plants growing between a majority of grasses, and forming a dry flammable turf in autumn. Prairie communities are categorized by soil conditions into dry (sandy or shallow hilltop soils), mesic (medium wetness) and wet prairies (poorly drained soils). Often characterized by very deep rooted plants. Prairie vegetation also consists of shallow-rooted species, some with widely spreading root systems.
area dominated by grasses on mineral soil. Trees may be present, but less than 10% of the area has a tree canopy. Four natural communities: fine-textured-soil prairie, sand prairie, gravel prairie, dolomite prairie.
A prairie is a wide, relatively flat area of land that has grasses and only a few trees.
a level to hilly tract of land that has a dominance of grasses and forbs, has a scarcity of shrubs, and is almost treeless. The natural plant community consists of various mixes of native species.
a broad, largely flat tract of grassland, especially in central North America
flat land covered with grass
a type of habitat characterized by grasses and forbs
Level or hilly grassland that is found in the centre of North America. In Canada, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta contain large areas of prairie.
a broad tract of level or rolling grassland.
a tract of level to hilly land that has a predominance of grasses and small broad leaved plants, a scarcity of shrubs, and is nearly treeless.
land predominantly made up of grass
A large, flat plain with a lot of grass and almost no trees, such as the Great Plains of North America.
An extensive area of flat or rolling grassland, vaarying from open largely treeless grasslands to savannas, and whose communities are moatly fire dependent for their maintenance.
To dream of a prairie, denotes that you will enjoy ease, and even luxury and unobstructed progress. An undulating prairie, covered with growing grasses and flowers, signifies joyous happenings. A barren prairie, represents loss and sadness through the absence of friends. To be lost on one, is a sign of sadness and ill luck.
Nearly level or rolling grassland, originally treeless, and usually characterised by fertile soil.
A flat or gently undulating plain that is grassy and generally treeless; specifically, such an area in southern Canada and the northern and central United States where it extends from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to about 88°W longitude. Its climate, with light summer rains and high summer temperatures, is highly favorable for the growth of cereals, but there is a considerable risk of drought especially in certain portions, where a semiarid climate ( steppe climate) prevails. The prairie is similar, but not completely analogous, to the steppe regions of Europe and Asia.
a treeless grassy plain.
Prairie refers to an area of land of low topographic relief that historically supported grasses and herbs, with few trees, and having generally a mesic (moderate or temperate) climate.
