Transcript of Tundra

The Tundra plays a large role in the temperature regulation of the planet. As warm air rises from the tropical zone it is cooled in the Tundra causing it to sink back down to the equator. This causes weather and air currents. Without this system climate as we know it would change drastically around the world.

The tundra is home to many native plants including, bear berry, the pasque flower, and arctic moss. The tundra is also home to arctic foxes, polar bears, and arctic hares. The Biome Another great place to visit is the Taiga. The Taiga is 1,242 miles away from the Tundra. The Biomes of the World The biomes abiotic factors include water, sunlight, wind, soil and rock. The soil is mostly permafrost and many things can not grow in the soil. Bibliography: rare animals Importance of the Tundra Wikipedia.com

Another symbiotic relationship is a mite. A mite feeds off the blood of another animal (Ex. Polar Bear). This relationship is a form of parasitism.
