
The ChAPARRAL Biome’s CLimATe
is hot and dry and is found in southern
California and is on the west side of
Africa. The herbivores that live there
eat grass, like the tuatara lizard and
jackrabbit. The plants that are found
in the chaparral have small waxy
(hard) leaves to maintain their water,
and are adapted to seasonal fires; in
other words, their seeds germinate only
after a fire has opened them.
Problems in the Chaparral Biome

The chaparral biome has many problems.
Lumberjacks are cutting down trees and
destroying the vegetation. Humans kill animals
in the chaparral, which disrupts the food chain.
The most devastating problem is wild fires.
These wildfires happen often to the land, or are
started by humans. In nature some plants need
fire to survive in the chaparral, which helps
them grow.
