Tundra Geography & Climate The Tundra is located in the Artic Circle. The Tundra is the coldest biome. Its soil is frozen. The Tundra gets less than 10 inches of rain every year. The temperature ranges from -50*f to 50*f. The climate is cold and frozen.
Tundra Biodiversity The plant species they have are liches, mosses, small shrubs. The animal species they have are caribous, hairs, polar bears, foxes, wolves, and birds.] The total number of species they have recorded there are no more than 10
Tundra Adaptations Needed for Survival r Well all animals in the Tundra need some adaptations to survive so the don’t die. If they live in the Tundra they will need to have a thick coat of fur, their fur will need to be camouflaged so they don’t get hunted down, they will also need to be fast so if they are in trouble they can evade or chase an animal.
Tundra Interactions of Biotic and Abiotic The polar bear eats fresh fish and fatty foods. Sunlight provides plants radiant energy.
What is Biodiversity? Biodiversity is the variety of life. It can be studied on many levels. At the highest level, you can look at all the different species on the entire earth. On a much smaller scale, you can study biodiversity within a pond ecosystem or a neighborhood park. Identifying and understanding the relationships between all the life on earth are some of the greatest challenges in science.
How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem? All the varieties of life in an ecosystem can help the ecosystem stay together. For example: if all the plants in a lake die, the fish die, if the fish die, hawks and bears die. So if one thing became extinct in a ecosystem then almost all the things will become extinct.
