World Book Ecology: Life on the Plains

A plain is a broad, nearly level stretch of land with no abrupt changes in elevation. Plains are generally lower than the land around them. They may be found along a coast or inland. Plant life on plains is controlled by climate. Plains are usually well populated because the soils and terrain are good for farming, and because roads and railroads are easy to build between rural towns and cities. Learn all about the plains as World Book Ecology presents Life on the Plains.
