TundraBiodiversity


  • Plants: the ability to survive the freezing cold and droughts

  • Animals: Ptarmigan-Their feet are covered in feathers to keep from sinking in the snow.

Tundraadaptations needed for survival


Biotic: birds to tree: tree provides shelter for the birds. Also owls, and other birds

Abiotic:rain: provides the little snow they get.

Wind: carries the seeds the plants produce.

TundraInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic


  • Biodiversity-The number of plant and animal species in a area.

What is Biodiversity?


The predators need variety to survive. If one species dies and that is the predators only meal than the predators die off. The prey will grow in size and run out of food and die off too.

How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem?
