Biome Description

The Tundra is located in the north pole on top of the world. It is really cold and really big.

Like Russia.It is Covered in ice looks really cool in the summer really tundra has no summer because it is always cold.Characteristics of Tundra

  1. Extremely cold climate
  2. Low biotic diversity
  3. Simple vegetation structure
  4. Limitation of drainage
  5. Short season of growth and reproduction
  6. Energy and nutrients in the form of dead organic material
  7. Large population oscillations

Biotic Factors

Plant are protected by the ice because the disturbance of the soil.plants are put all together in rows\places.the snow covers the plants to protect them from the wind and cold airAll of the plants are adapted to sweeping winds and disturbances of the soil. Plants are short and group together to resist the cold temperatures and are protected by the snow during the winter. They can carry out photosynthesis at low temperatures and low light intensities. The growing seasons are short and most plants reproduce by budding and division rather than sexually by flowering. The fauna in the arctic is also diverse:.
