What are some grassland plant adaptations?

Answer

Over the years, plants form adaptations which allow them to thrive in their given biome such as the grasslands or the prairie. Some examples include grasses that have the ability to survive a fire, those that have narrow leaves, which allow them to survive longer without water, and those that have extensive root system. An extensive root system prevents animals from pulling the grasses from the ground, which allows the grass to thrive over many years.
