In the tundra it is very dry. There are short summers and long winters. The tundra is very cold and can reach -50 fahrenheit in the winter. During the summer the temperature barely goes past 50 fahrenheit. In the winter everything is frozen, and in the summer everything is soggy.
In the Tundra plants and animals have adapted to fit the cold and dry environment. Plants in the Tundra usually grow in groups, are adapted to be short, and have adapted to low light and colder temperatures. Plants and animals have both adapted to use minimal energy to stay fat and warm. Animals only breed when it’s warm, and in the winter they either hibernate or migrate. Animals typically change their diet throughout the year to match the changing weather.
