Natural spaces – with mum-nach


Nature has created so many incredible, beautiful and unique landscapes, natural spaces and ecosystems that it is not possible to experience them all in a single human life. However, it is easier than ever to pay a visit to many of them and to remember the miracle forever.

Natural spaces of our earth

Our planet Earth is amazingly versatile. If you are looking for a specific natural space to inspire your journey with your child, or if you want to observe very special animals, because you would like to have completely new experiences, it is best to orient yourself according to the individual climatic zones. In these climatically very different regions of the earth characteristic landscapes with their typical flora and fauna occur, where you can orient yourself roughly once before.

Do you love the sea, which forms wild and powerful rocks in one place and turquoise bays on the other? Do you wake up as soon as you set foot in the forest and the light falls gently through the green canopy, the birds chirp in the trees and you inhale the spicy scent of the forest floor?

Or have you ever been to the desert, which does not necessarily live up to your bad reputation for being extremely hot, dry and dead? And who would have thought that there is not just boring grass in the steppe??

A few background information in advance

The global natural spaces of this earth are created by the different climatic zones, which move like belts in east-west direction over the planet. Of course, the sun has the biggest impact on the climate. It ensures that it is bright and warm. The sun also strongly influences other weather phenomena. These include rain and wind. Different climatic conditions inevitably result in different vegetation.

For this reason, the natural vegetation zones and their natural areas are roughly parallel to the climatic zones of the earth. These eight vegetation zones are divided into four main zones, as they appear mirrored in the northern and southern hemisphere:

Naturraum Polarregion

There are very few plants in the polar region, as permafrost prevails in many areas, making plant growth impossible.

Natural area temperate zone

At the transition between the polar areas and the temperate zone are areas where the soil thaws over a short period of the year and therefore a conditional plant growth is possible. Here you will find the grasslands of the tundra.

Natural area deciduous forest, mixed forest, coniferous forest

The vegetation zone, in the Germany is the temperate zone in which predominantly deciduous and mixed forests occur. To the north, coniferous forests cover large parts of the earth.

Natural Subtropics

The subtropical regions are subdivided into the most diverse drylands: desert, steppe and savannah. In these areas it is warm and bright, but unfortunately lacks the rain for a lush green vegetation. Incidentally, the steppe regions in America are called prairie.

Natural area savanna, steppe and prairie

Natural space tropics

Finally, at the equator it is warm and rainy all year round. Optimal conditions for countless plant species. Here we find the tropical rainforests with their fascinating biodiversity.

All natural spaces at a glance

  • tundra
  • Coniferous forest, deciduous and mixed forest
  • desert
  • Savannah, steppe, prairie
  • tropical rain forest

And then there are a few very special natural spaces that, regardless of the climate, are something very special about flora and fauna:

  • Natural space mountains & mountains
  • Natural space coast

Natural space desert

Desert areas are due to the long dry periods and high temperatures very poor vegetation or even completely without plant growth. In North Africa and South West Africa are known deserts such as the Sahara, the Namib or the Kalahari. But there are deserts on other continents as well. READ MORE

Natural space forest

You could easily forget that the forest is simply nature: timber supplier, green lung, habitat and water reservoir. In Bavaria there is a lot of it. Whole 25,000 square kilometers are partly as crowded ecosystems in the Free State. This corresponds to almost one third of the total area. READ MORE

Natural space savannah

Depending on how you look at it, the savanna accounts for about 12 to 18 percent of the total land surface. The summer rainy season makes the savannah green in summer and the rest of the year because of the drought. Savannas are common in Africa, but they are also found in Australia, India and the north of South America. READ MORE
