Flora- low to the ground plants. plants are often very condensed to keep the heat in. an example of this is Arctic moss which stays close to the ground to capture heat, and Saxifrage which is a condensed plant




Climate- The average temperature of the tundra is about -30°F in winter and 45°F in the summer. There are 2 areas which storms develop. The Aleutian low (eastern Siberia to the Gulf of Alaska), and the Icelandic low (covers central Canada, half of the Arctic Ocean, and parts of the North Atlantic Ocean and northern Europe). These storms usually travel Northwest to Southwest.

Fauna - Animals that live in the tundra often have thick fur coats like the polar bear.  Smaller animals may dig underground like the ground squirrel to escape the cold.
