Artic Tundra Plants

food webs and food chains in the arctic tundra

A typical Arctic tundra food chain in Alaska begins with lichen, which is both an alga a producer and a fungus a decomposer living symbiotically. Lichen can live on bare rock in the tundra and slowly break it down to soil. A caribou, a primary consumer, eats the lichen and later dies. A brown or grizzly bear an omnivore stumbles upon the dead body and consumes it, becoming both a scavenger and secondary consumer.
