Artic TundraThe Arctic Tundra is a cold, vast, treeless area of low, swampy plains in the far north, where the ground is frozen year around, in the Arctic Ocean. By: Lauren Teeling

Size and Elevation

The Artic Tundra often has extreme temperatures, mostly during harsh winters.Average temperature during the winter in the Tundra is about -30 degrees Farenheit.One of the record temperatures during the winter in the month of January was -93 degrees Farenheit. During the summer months such as June, July, and August, temperatures average at 45 degrees Farenheit. The hottest temperature in the Arctic Tundra was about 60 degrees Farenheit. In the Arctic Tundra, the climate during the winter is harsh. Winds have reached higher than 65 miles per hour and precipitation is often scattered rains and possibly snow. During the summer, the Tundra begins to rise in tempature and sunlight is very common.

Climate and Precipatation

Producers

Decomposers

Consumers

Producers such a the arctic willow, the pasque flower, and cotton grass, live in the Arctic Tundra.

Decomposers such as the ice worm, the arctic spider, and over a thousand different funguses, live in the Arctic Tundra.

Consumers such as the musk oxen, the caribou, and the lemming, live in the Arctic Tundra.

The Arctic Tundra is about 11,563,300 square kilometersin size/area. The Arctic Tundra ranges from about 300 to 11,000 feet in elevation.

Threats and Predictions

The Arctic Tundra is not experiencing many threats, but like all of us it has been experiencing wacky weather and climate conditions. If the irregular climate continues, the whole experience and life of the Arctic Tundra will change.

Biotic and Abiotic

Some abiotic factors:poor soil, large glaciers, medium sized rocks, and lots of ice.Some biotic factors: evergreen trees, dead animals, decomposers, and arctic animals.
