Researchers now know the invasion history of the tropical fire ant (Solenopsis geminata), the first ant species known to travel the globe by sea. Their study, reported in the journal Molecular Ecology, reveals that 16th century Spanish galleons shuttled tropical fire ants from Acapulco, Mexico, across the Pacific to the Philippines, and from there to other parts of the world.
Scientists say that across the globe, more than 10 percent of species abundance has been lost. Free Population Education lesson plan about biodiversity, a World of Difference: https://www.populationeducation.org/sites/default/files/a_world_of_difference.pdf
What Are the Major Lines of Latitude and Longitude on a World Map?: The equator is the line of latitude that is the longest and lies along the circumference of the earth, halfway between the North Pole and the South Pole.
Visit Africa and Asia and study life on tropical grasslands, the Savannas. Next, circle the globe and draw temperate grassland animals, like the anteater of South America and the pronghorn of North America. Then, study the mountains and deserts of the world. Learn to draw the continents, too!
