Tundra biome

Arctic Tundras occur in the far Northern Hemisphere. The word "tundra" usually refers only to the areas where the subsoil is permafrost, or permanently frozen soil. The soil there is frozen from 25–90 cm, or 10–35 inches down, and it is impossible for trees to grow.There are many threats to Tundras even if not many people live there. A severe threat to the Tundra is global warming, which causes permafrost to melt. There are many natural resources located in or under the tundra such as natural gas and oil. People drill for these resources which can disturb or pose a threat to the wildlife. Laws have been passed to also protect habitats from drilling.
