Transcript of The Biome of the Arctic Tundra

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Exploring the Arctic Tundra The Arctic Tundra has the coldest, harshest winters in the world. Common tundra landscapes include mountains, rivers, and valleys. Russia, Mongolia, Alaska, and Canada all contain tundra landscapes. Geography Humans live, hunt, and fish on the Tundra year-round. The Tundra's natural resources, such as oil and animal furs are slowly being deprived due to the fact that humans are using them at a rate faster than they can be replenished. Global warming is another Human impact that affects the tundra. As the greenhouse effect takes place, the winters become warmer and have a negative effect on the biome. Human Interaction and Impact on the Tundra Animal and Plant life in the Arctic Tundra The Arctic Tundra is full of natural resources. Oil and Uranium are plentiful deep within the Tundra's soils/ Natural Resources found in the Arctic Tundra The Tundra Biome is contained in the northern latitudes of the world. Because the land is placed far in the north, it doesn't get as much sunlight. This cause below freezing temperature and snow on the ground for nine months of the year. Global Distribution and Climate Due to the harsh conditions and extreme weather, the Arctic Tundra does not have a true soil. While plants can grow here, they have special adaptions to the cold temperatures and deprived soil. Soils of The Arctic Tundra - Caribou can lower their metabolism rate in order to conserve food in the long winter months. - Grey wolves that live in Alaska, Canada, and Russia grow thicker coats in the winter in order to stay warm. - Arctic Moss stores nutrients in it's leaves during the winter when it is not growing. - The Bearberry plant has small hairs that protect it from the freezing temperatures.
