Antarcticas flora
Plants are the base of the food chain.
Plants that live in Antarctica are:
Linches-

Are the most common and larger plant in Antartica.
Algae-
There are two types of algae that grows in antarctica.
red snow algae
and
green snow algae
. green algae grows on the underside of floating ice where it is a food source for Krill.
The food chain is extremly complicated and vitally important to amimal life. If one living organism goes then they all go.
You have the producers of the sea(Phytoplankton), herbivores (Zooplankton), omnivors(Krill), carnivores (Adele Penguin, Crabeater Seal, Emperor Penguin, Humpback Whale, Ice Fish, Petrel, Squid) and top level carnivores (Killer Whale, Leopard Seal).
Antarctica is the highest, driest, windiest, emptiest, coldest place on earth.

Humans harvest Antarctic Krill for food, bait and stockfeed. Overhavesting of krill may cause problems in the food web because so many species depend on krill to survive.
Grass-
There are 2 types of grass that grow in Antarctica: Antarctic Hair Grass and the Antarctic Pearlwot. they are the only 2 flowering plants that grow 60 degrees lattitude.
