Human Impact on the Savanna Biome Humans have hurt the savanna biome in many ways. Some ways that humans have hurt the savanna biome are that humans use the land for cattle grazing, which is why the grass is beginning to die and the savanna is slowly turning into a desert. Humans have caused many fires that have destroyed the land. Humans use wood for fuel causing problems to the biome's environment. Humans hunt the animals illegally (poaching), which causes animals to become extinct. Every year, people burn down plant life to make the land more fertile. This is trouble for many herbivores because they eat only plants. Solution to the Problem People are also trying to help the savanna by creating controlled burning programs to keep worse fires out. People created nature preserves to keep the savanna biome natural. People have also set up a biosphere reserve in South Africa to protect savanna's environment.

Unformatted text preview: Affect on Savanna's Population Size / Population Growth Burning plant life and starting fires in savanna had a huge affect on savanna's population size and population growth. The affect that burning plants and starting fires had on savanna's population size and population growth was that many animals become extinct and abundant under the fire which causes the population size and population growth to decrease. Affect on Savanna's Food Web The affect that the food web would have on the savanna because of plant burning is that there would be fewer plants because the plants are being burned and less herbivores because they eat only plants which are being burned. There would be more carnivores than herbivores because the carnivores eat other animals including dead animals and there food isn't being burned....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
