Transcript of Tundra
By Nathaniel Haga
Dominant Plant life
Bearberry: Red berries and green leaves that are oval in structure.
Annual Rainfall in the Tundra
The average rainfall for the Tundra is 6-10 inches. This is a very small amount compared to other biomes.
A food chain in the Tundra
Lichen: A producer at the bottom of the food chain. It is a type of fungus.
Location of the Tundra biome
The tundra is the coldest of all biomes. It has no trees and only small shrubbery. It is the most northern biome on Earth. It has the shortest growing season and low temperatures. It is mostly in Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Norway and the northern most part of Russia.
Annual Temperature Ranges
The annual temperature ranges from -30 degrees F in the winter to 50 degrees F in the summer.
The soil in this biome is very poor in nutrients. The reasoning for this is that the soil is mostly frozen which prohibits too much plant growth.
Diamond Leaf Willow: Green leaves and small round soft twigs that provide vitamin C, vitamin A, and Calcium to those that eat it.
Dominant Animal life
Caribou: Migratory animals that have an abundance of fur to keep themselves warm in their habitat. Their diet consists of willow leaves and various mosses. Male Caribou can weigh up to 600 lbs. and females weigh 200 lbs.
Arctic Hare: Small mammal with large feet that are used to tread snow very fast. Their diet consists of buds, berries, twigs and mosses. The arctic hare weighs between 8-14 lbs.
Special landmarks/features of the Tundra
A famous landmark that is located in the tundra is Mount McKinley. Mount McKinley is the highest peak in Alaska and the U.S.A.
Lemmings: A herbivore. Known as a primary consumer. It eats the Lichen.
Arctic Fox: An omnivore eating both meat and vegetation. The fox is a secondary consumer. It eats the Lemmings and the Lichen.
Polar Bear: The Polar Bear is a carnivore. It is also identified as a tertiary consumer. It eats the Arctic fox.
