Flora and Fauna


Blades of grass creep out through cracks in the sidewalk, and you might see a squirrel darting over electrical lines between the trees. Despite the intense urbanization happening, flora and fauna, or the plants and animals in an ecosystem, still find a way to break through.

Flora is the plant life in an ecosystem. Flora is the foundation for all other life in an area. They make their own food from sunlight and provide energy for the rest of the ecosystem. No animals would be able to exist without flora. This is so true in fact, that flora thrive in even the most harsh environments in the world.

Fauna are all the animals in an ecosystem. You might be surprised to learn that fauna aren’t just the furry animals we’re familiar with, like bears, but also include aquatic species, like jellyfish, coral, and a host of insects on land.

This ecosystem consists of dense trees and an abundance of plant species. This ecosystem is marked by extremely low rainfall, not necessarily a hot climate. This ecosystem includes an almost continuous cover of grasses but not many taller plants. This ecosystem features steep elevation changes in the terrain.
