Discuss how temperature and amount of precipitation can affect the type of plants and animals found in the tundra biome.
Tundra biome has a very harsh winter and a cool summer. It has a very low level of precipitation. Because the ground is permanently frozen, only algae, mosses, and lichens are found as vegetation. Animals that live in this biome must be well equipped to combat the very cold weather like the polar bear, artic fox, and snow owl.
