Problem: More roads and buildings could heat up the permafrost causing the tundra to melt.

Solution: We could limit road construction, mining, etc.

Fact!!!!!!!

Because of extreme temperatures, most organisms get their nutrients from decaying of dead organic materials.


The tundra biome is considered a carbon dioxide sink because it stores more carbon dioxide than it gives off.
