POLITICAL MAP focuses on the state and national boundaries of a place.

They also include the locations of cities both large and small, depending on the detail of the map.
A physical map is one that shows the physical landscape features of a place.
A Topographic map is similar to a physical map in that it shows different physical landscape features.
A climate map shows information about the climate of an area.
An economic or resource map shows the specific type of economic activity or natural resources present in an area
through the use of different symbols or colors depending on what is being shown on the map.
A road map is one of the most widely used map types.
Thematic maps are designed instead to highlight information on specific topics.
To understand roads and subways at new places.
To calculate distance between two places.
To know whether there are two or more paths to the same place and which is the shortest.
We can get information about mountains, rivers, valleys or any other thing,
Grassland Ecosystem is the collection of plants, animals and micro-organisms that live within an environment
where grasses are the primary form of vegetation. , and we can prepare for that.
Temperate grasslands are the home to many large herbivores, such as bison, gazelles, zebras, rhinoceroses,
and wild horses.
Climate grasses grow in great concentration of climate with annual rainfall range between 500 and 900 mm.
A forest ecosystem is defined as an area dominated by trees and other woody plants. Forests aren't only trees,
however. Healthy forests have a lot going on in them, and many different species of both animals and plants that
call them home.
The canopy section of a forest is the very top, and consists of the tallest, oldest trees, which can reach heights of
150 to 200 feet. This layer is the harshest of the five layers because it is exposed to everything that nature throws
its way. It gets whipped by the wind, exposed to the sun without shade, receives the brunt of downpours, and is the
most likely to be struck by lightning.
The shrub layer is the next level down, and is dominated by woody plants that never grow very tall. Some of
these are very young trees or trees that remain shorter, but most are shrubs, which are woody plants that have
more than one stem. Shrubs can get as tall as 15 to 20 feet, but most top out at around 10, and many are shorter
than that. Lichens can grow on tree bark between the shrub layer and the understory, and animal life also thrives.
The herbaceous layer is the layer just above the forest floor, and consists of tree seedlings and non-woody plants.
These include mosses and a variety of flowers. The forest floor consists of the leaf litter-- a thick bed of leaves
dropped from the trees-- and the soil. These layers are the backbone of the forest.
All year high temperatures and abundant rainfall.
Forest point Located near the equator. A vital storehouse of biodiversity, sustaining millions of different animals,
birds, algae and fish species. Located at the south of the temperate regions around the coasts of the
Mediterranean, California, Chile and Western Australia. The growing season is short and almost all trees are
evergreen, but mixed with hardwood and softwood. Located at Eastern North America, Northeastern Asia, and
western and eastern Europe. Mix of deciduous and coniferous evergreen trees. Usually, the broad-leaved hardwood
trees shed leaves annually. There are well-defined seasons with a distinct winter and sufficient rainfall. Located in
the cold, windy regions around the poles. They come in both hardwoods and conifers. The hardwoods are
deciduous. The conifers are evergreen and structurally adapted to withstand the long drought-like conditions of the
long winters. Cloud forests because they receive most of their precipitation from the mist or fog that comes up from
the lowlands. Usually found in high-elevation tropical, subtropical and temperate zones. Plants and animals in these
forests are adapted to withstanding the cold, wet conditions and intense sunlight. Trees are mainly conifers. Has
around 7% of global forest cover (140 million hectares). Produces more sustainable timber and fiber than natural
forests. Plantations produce around 40% of industrial wood. Plantation forests are on the increase.
