Transcript of Biome Project: Tundra

THE TUNDRA Geographic Conditions The Tundra is a treeless biome. It is mostly flat, Cold, and rocky. The Tundra is found surrounding the poles at above 60º latitude.
The weather is freezing cold. It can range from -58º C to -28º C in the winter, and in the summer it can range from 3º C to 12º C.
There is very little precipitation year round. It usually ranges from 15 to 20 cm.
The Tundra has very short growing seasons that barely allow plants to thaw. There are lots of biotic material in the soil in the Tundra. The short summer barely thaws the grass and the harsh cold rips up the roots of the grass, killing it. Making ample food call Tullocks for organisms in the arctic. Decomposer

Heterotroph Arctic Fox Snowy Owl(and Harry Potter) Lichen Moose Caribou Moss Bearberry Labrador Tea Arctic Hare Lemming Polar Bear Arctic Wolves Symbiosis Mutualism Commensalism Lichen: Inside of the lichen
there are 2 things, algae
and fungus. The algae gets
energy for both of them
while the fungus
gets materials. Arctic Fox and Moose:
Moose moves soil to get
food and the fox follows the
moose to dig further and try
to get animals that have
burrowed underground.
Fox = +1 Moose = 0 Algae = +1 Fungus = +1 Adaption Plants Arctic Poppy: The arctic poppy has
adapted to have cup shaped flowers
that follow the sun for the short
time that it can. It also develops
quickly so it can spread its
seeds. The flowers in the Tundra
have to lowest blooming temperature in the entire world. Animals Arctic Hare: The arctic hare has a white coat that is used for camouflage.
The hare also jumps on its hind legs sprawling into the air in order to get a better vantage point over the flat land to survey the area.
