What is the net primary productivity of temperate grasslands?
NET PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY
Primary productivity is the term used to describe the rate at which energy is converted into organic material, through a process known as photosynthesis. This process is done by the primary producers of an ecosystem. Regions with high primary productivity, shows that there is an increase in nutrient availability. Regions that have a primary productivity higher than 1000 kilocalories/square meter/year are considered high. The primary productivity of a temperate grassland biome is found to be approximately, 2000 kilocalories/square meter/year.
