Central and Southern mixed grasslands

WWF Abstract

The Central and Southern Mixed Grasslands ecoregion is an example of an ecotone, a transitional zone where one ecosystem merges with another. In this case, it is where the central forests and the tallgrass prairies meet the shortgrass prairies. Unlike the central forests, this mixed grassland has very few trees or shrubs.
