Transcript of Copy of Tundra Biome Prezi

By; Jesus Martinez Tundra Biome The average temperature of the tundra biome
in the winter is -34 degrees Celsius, or -30
degrees Fahrenheit, but the average temperature in the summer is 3-12 degrees
Celsius, or 37-54 degrees Fahrenheit. Winter Summer The annual precipitation, including melting snow,
is 15-25 centimeters, or 6-10 inches. The growing season is 50-60 days. The tundra biome is located in and a
little south of the arctic circle. The tundra biome is the coldest biome. It's name
came from the Finnish word tunturi, or treeless
plain. Another interesting fact about this biome is
that it goes through a dramatic climate change. In
the winter, it's so cold that most of the animals have to hibernate or migrate south for the winter. In summer, however, it gets warmer and the snow melts. The animals that migrated during the winter return and the hibernating animals wake up. This is what I find interesting about my biome. The dominant plants in the tundra biome
are low shrubs, sedges, reindeer mosses,
liverworts, and grasses. The animals that live in the tundra
include lemmings, caribou, arctic
hares, squirrels, arctic foxes, polar
bears, wolves, ravens, falcons, loons,
snow birds, mosquitoes, flies, moths,
grasshoppers, arctic bumble bees,
mountain goats, sheep, elk, beetles,
and butterflies. Animals are adapted to handle
long, cold winters. Mammals
and birds are insulated by their
fat. Some animals hibernate in
the winter. Others migrate
south, such as birds. The tundra is an interesting biome
because of the dramatic climate change,
extreme conditions, unique wildlife, and
much more. I hope you enjoyed this prezi. TUNDRA
