Last week we had to choose any type of topic in the category “Ecosystem”, so I chose to do Tundra. There are three Types of Tundras, Arctic Tundra, Alpine Tundra and Antarctic Tundra. In this blog post I will be talking about Antarctic tundra and alpine tundra because if you have read my last post then you have have known that I had already made a post about Arctic Tundra. I only got a bit of information because they didn’t really say as much as Arctic tundra.
You would think that antarctica is completely cover with ice and snow, but the tundra areas have soil that can support life. Lichens, mosses and algae do just fine. Thanks to the Antarctic tundra.
You can find alpine tundra all over the world on mountaintops, above the tree line. Conditions there are rough, with heavy snowfall and high winds. Still, animals and plants manage to survive there, taking advantage of the two months out of the year when there is no frost.
The environment in all types of tundra is extremely fragile. Tracks left by cars and trucks can remain for 30 years or more. If you even find yourself in the tundra, it is best to step lightly.
This was all the information I got from Antarctic and alpine tundra. I hope you learned something and enjoyed this post.
