    • 5 Pages

    The tundra is defined as a large, treeless, and almost flat open space. They are located in the uppermost regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. In the tundra, most of the months’ average temperature is under the freezing point. The winters are long and harsh; in contrast, the summers are short and somewhat warm; however, the average monthly temperature is never above 10°C. Evaporation is poor, so there is very little precipitation and when there is, it’s dispersed evenly throughout the year. The tundra’s terrain isn’t very good at absorbing the precipitation, so the ground becomes muddy during the summer.

    Essay On Tundra

    • 2 Pages

    The tundra has the coldest temperatures of all of the different types of biomes. The typical temperature in the tundra is about minus 18 degrees Fahrenheit.

It’s actually very dry in the tundra as they receive about as much precipitation, or moisture, as the average desert, and it’s mostly in the form of snow. It’s also barren and treeless partly because it lacks the nutrients needed to support plants and animals. All year it has…

    fact that there are merely 200 plant species in the tundra, Earth's coldest terrain. The tundra is not what most people believe it is, for reasons such as misinformation, disbelief (the tundra is that amazing) and many more. First of all, there is higher biological production in water than on land (and there is life in the tundra), and second of all, the tundra is the only biome to have permafrost. Third of all, the frigidness prevents most flora and fauna from surviving. The tundra is very…
