Tundra Biome By: Brady Anderson Plant Facts Weather And Climate Winter Temperatures Summer temperatures Climate Bering Sea Douglasia Sessile-Leaved Scurvy- Grass Aleutian Wormwood Musk Ox's Snowy Owl The Snowy Owl is the Genus animal in the Tundra Biome.. They build their nests on the ground in a higher place than the surrounding land so that they will have good visibility of predators and prey.. They range from 1.75-2 feet length and have a wingspan of 4.5-5.5 feet The Musk Ox is a big animal so there a big game animal for hunters. The Musk OX natural population is more in Greenland than in Alaska Aleutian Wormwood is an endangered plant in a Alaska.. They will be found growing next to Aleutian Islands.It is a perennial plant with small clustered flower heads with small blossoms and leaves that eventually sprout Its a endangered plant whose habitat is thought to be throughout several Arctic regions, through the plant is most often spotted in western Alaska.. At the end of June it produces small pink flowers that eventually turn white. Is an Endangered plant that has been found near southern coast of Alaska.. It reaches 7 centimeters and produces white flowers in the beginning of summer then soon after it blooms fruits that are big for the plant The e temperature averages anywhere between from -40 to -20 then when it reaches January it warms up to about 30 degrees The same regions that have cold winter have mild summers were temperatures average between 45 degrees to 90 degrees The tundra biome is known as "the land of the midnight sun".
There is a layer of permafrost on the ground creating bogs and shallow lakes that never drain. The definition of Tundra...
A vast treeless zone lying between the ice cap and the timberline Caribou Female Caribou will weigh about 200 pounds..A male Caribou will weigh up to 600 pounds Animal Facts Influences on Earth Influence on plant growth In the Tundra biome the ground is always wet a few centimeters down into the ground from the permafrost so plant roots grow super fast. Feeding for animals With all of the plant life in the biome animals like Caribou and Musk Ox have a lot of food and recourses to survive Migration for animals Most of the bird species of the tundra have the ability to migrat to live in warmer locations during the freezing cold months of winter Geology Floods After the cold winter months and the snow starts to melt and there is no drain for the water so it makes big pools of water Mountains Mountains in the Tundra are not huge but some of them are high enough in elevation to hold snow year around Bogs and Marshes The way the ground is always wet it creates big bogs that stretch for miles and marshes that go on for a long ways Countries Endangered Species Latitude and longitude The arctic tundra in the far northern hemisphere is 71.1 degrees North and 150 degrees West 3 Facts Extremely cold climate,
Low biotic diversity,
Simple vegetation structure 3 more facts Limitation of drainage,
Short season of growth,
Large population oscillation Polar Bear Musk Ox The reason the endangered because humans want there meat,fur,horns The reason there endangered is the global warming Wood Bison There endangered because of hunters hunting them to extinction Fun Facts Fact The tundra has one growing tree the willow tree Fact The tundra is the second most deadly environment Fact 6 weeks of summer and the rest cold winter months "Tundra."
