The grass that grows in the middle of the continents with a moderate climate is short and nutritious. The region is home to animals such as buffalo, bison, and antelope. This type of grass is found in the Velavadararar of Bhavnagar and the Banni area of Kutch in Gujarat. Depending on where they are found, they may be called steppe in Eurasia, prairie in the foothills of the Rockies, pampa in Argentina, and Uruguay in South America.

There is a layer of air surrounding us. Atmospheric pressure is the result of a huge layer of air pushing against the surface of the earth. The pressure of the atmosphere is greater on the surface of the ocean. As we move higher from the surface of the earth, the atmospheric pressure decreases. Low pressure occurs when gases become hot and move upward in a region with high temperatures. Humidity and cloudy weather are associated with low pressure. Low-temperature regions have a cool atmosphere, which increases the pressure.
Answer the following questions:
What is climate? State the effects of climate on human life.
Climate is determined by the average weather conditions of a region for the past 35 years or more. Climate is determined by the local conditions of temperature, humidity, rainfall, and air pressure. Climate directly affects the ecology, fauna, and human life of an area.
Effects of climate on Human Life
