By:Riley Grady

Biotic and Abiotic Factors

A couple abiotic factors that can be found in the arctic are Temperature, Precipitation, Seasons, Altitudes, Rocks, cloud coverage, Ice, Snow. Biotic factors are snowy owls,Arctic fox,Lemmings,Polar Bear,Arctic Hare

Plant life and precipitation

Plant life and rain

The yearly precipitation is 15 to 25 centimeters and the average temperature -10-20 degrees feerinheight the plant life there is not very good due to permafrost but there are many species like arctic fox and red fox which have migrated there and good food sources like musk oxen and night watches like the snowy owls

Human interactions

We need this biome for animal habitats and for our us oil industry I

Which is booming right now humans don't help this environment by over hunting polar bears and other species that need the cold as their habitats we can help this environment by using an alternative energy to stop global warming and keep this area cold keeping hunters out of the arctic

Random facts

This biome is known for being one of the coldest places on earth and for certain species that uses the cold as their habitat and cannot live anywhere else and a place for migration due to global warming a cool fact could be is that the plants that are there are all small and grouped together to fight off wind and it was formed over 10,000 years ago
