Summer in the alpines is very nice from 40-60 degrees. But in the winter, it is normally below freezing. The higher you go the colder it gets.The alpines are some what dry with around 12 inches of precipitation a year
Adaptations of the alpines plants are that they need to be tough against wind, ice, and snow and the have to live in the bad soil and poor air. Animal adaptations include thick fur for the winter that sheds in the summer, the ability to hibernate, and traveling in herds.
Interdependence between organisms
The interdependence between the organisms is like how the fox need the mice to survive and the mice need the seeds, roots, and berries to survive them self. Some of the organisms work together like a humming bird or honey bee need the nectar from flowers and the flowers need the organisms tho pass the pollen to reproduce.
-Strong back legs for jumping
-Strong legs for running
-Live in herds
-Antlers for fighting
-Very strong jaws and sharp teeth
Powerful paws and claws
If the mountain goat was removed from the Alpines biome...
The wolf and fox would not have enough food so the would be competing very much for the alpacas. the alpacas would be over hunted and they would die out then the predators would have no food and would die or move and the plants would take over.
If the jaguar was added to the Alpines...
jaguar, wolves, and foxes would be competing for alpacas and goats eventually there would be no food for the predators and they would have to adapt to a new environment or starve.
