Transcript of Biomes: Tundra

Abiotic Factors Air Ice Rock Coal Water e Tundra Sunlight Ice that the animals walk on in the Tundra. It also floats on water and some animals break through for a drink. Abiotic Factors are Non-Living things in an Ecosystem. Birds Reindeer Arctic Foxes Animals and Adaptations Snowy Owls Musk Oxen Polar Bears Rocks are covered all over the Tundra. They're found on the ground near plants. Water is what animals drink to survive. In the winter months it's found when you break through ice. Air is for animals to breathe. The plants there breathe Carbon Dioxide and provide Oxygen for animals. Sunlight is for animals to see and for plants to grow. Polar Bears live in the Tundra the whole year. When it's winter time they eat and hibernate. Their physical adaptation allows the food they ate to be stored as a layer of fat that insulates them from the cold. In time the layer of fat converts into energy that maintains life. The Arctic Foxes stay for a little while in the winter time. They'll travel miles for food in the winter. When it gets to cold in the Tundra they migrate too. The birds use the Tundra as a summer home. They will migrate in the winter and come back when it's warm. Reindeers also use the Tundra as a summer home. They migrate in the winter and will come back when it's warm. Snowy Owls also migrate in the winter. Just like the Arctic Fox, Birds, and Reindeer. They'll use the Tundra as a summer home. The Musk Oxen has two physical adaptations. One is to get water. A Musk Ox has hooves that are large and hard. In the winter months this allows them to break ice and drink water from underneath. The other is to stay warm. A Musk Ox can grow two layers of fur. One's short and one's long. Air is trapped between the short layer and the body. The air is then warmed up by body heat. The warmed air acts as an insulation from the cold. Some animals live in the Tundra, but they have to adapt to live there.
