ClimateThe Arctic Tundra is one of the Earth's coldest, harshest biomes. This biome has long cold winters and short cool summers. Winter temperatures average 10 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer temperatures average between 37 F to 54 F.

Arctic Tundra

GeographyArctic tundra is found across northern Alaska, Canada, Siberia, and most of Greeland. The sun shines almost 24 hours a day in the summer months but remains dark for nearly the entire day during the winter.

AnimalsA small number of animals such as the Arctic foxes, polar bears, gray wolves, caribou, snow geese and musk-oxen are found on the Artic tundra. Animals need to find ways to stay warm and to provide nourishment for themselves in order to survive the long, cold, winter months.

Plants

Because of the frozen soil layer only plants with shallow root systems grow in the Arctic tundra. Some of the plants that live in the Arctic tundra include reindeer mosses, Bearberry, Arctic Willow, lichens, low-growing shrubs, and grasses but no trees.
