Transcript of Alpine Tundra

Alpine Tundra By Bryan Nhek Location The Niwot Ridge is an alpine tundra about 35 km west of Boulder, Colorado. It's also 3,000m above sea level. http://www.lternet.edu/sites/nwt Precipitation http://culter.colorado.edu/NWT/site_info/climate/climate.html The average amount of precipitation a year is about 37 inches. Most of it comes from the snow during Winter and Spring. http://instaar.colorado.edu/tundracam/watershed.php Temperature The average temperature at 3,473m is about 8°F to 47°F. Animals can survive when it's cold from their fur and staying active to keep a high body temperature. http://xenon.colorado.edu/reflections/GPS_reflections/Niwot_Ridge.html Plants Alpine Primrose http://culter.colorado.edu/Field_trip/plants.html Sunflowers Western Yellow Paintbrush American Bistort Arctic Sandwort Animals White-tailed ptarmigan Elk Porcupine http://culter.colorado.edu/Field_trip/animals.html Yellow-bellied marmot Woodrat dddddddddddddddddd http://www.rmrs.nau.edu/usamab/niwot%20ridge%20reserve%20cover%20page.htm Animal Resources There are many plants and water in the alpine tundra. Many animals eat plants for energy. Dead organic materials give the most energy and nutrients. http://myhydros.org/water-and-the-environment/role-of-water-in-the-tundra/ Biotic Factors • Plants • Animals • Soil • Abiotic Factors • Weather • Very long winters http://oildrillingh.tripod.com/id14.html http://www.thewildclassroom.com/biomes/alpinetundra.html Competition Many animals have to compete because they have
the same prey. A lemming and an artic hare
would have a competition
because they both eat
lichens. Bacteria Pictures http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/5704d/b911f/ http://www.sfu.ca/geog/geog355fall04/tmcurrie/kamloopsforestregion.html
