Min L.'s curator insight, December 7, 2014 11:15 PM

I chose this Scoop because it is current, relevant, and accurate. This article was published in 2012, which is relatively current. The contents of this article are relevant as it has an excellent overview of the Tropical Grassland biome with information about its climate, location, animal life, and vegetation. Also, this article was written by Dr. Susan L. Woodward, who has taught biogeography at Radford University for more than 20 years. Woodward has a Ph.D and M.A from Princeton University and a B.A from the University of Minnesota. The website is administered by Dr. Andrew Foy, Assistant Professor of Geospatial Science at Radford University.
