    The Antarctic tundra has the fewest animals. The growing season is very short, lasting only a few weeks in the summer. Fill a tall plastic soda bottle with water at room temperature. Although the growing season is only a few weeks long, plants take advantage of the long hours of daylight during the short summer months. The Dolgan, for example, were primarily reindeer herders and lived a nomadic lifestyle for the last several hundred years.

    Many alpine plants have red leaves because of a coloring matter called anthocyanin. From the lack of lots of vegetation, some herbivores in the Tundra have a hard time finding areas with a abundance of plants to eat during the Winter. After they mate and the female lays her eggs, she sits on them to keep them warm until they hatch. In the tundra, as elsewhere, the food web consists of producers, consumers, and decomposers. Birds, caribou, and red deer, for example, spend only the summers there. As a result, their fur is extremely thick and soft, keeping the chinchilla warm in the cold, even during the freezing alpine nights.

    Since the s their lifestyle has become less nomadic. What happens when tall trees are exposed to strong, sustained wind? Many traditional and indigenous populations have seen a sharp decline in the young people who choose to maintain ancestral ways into adulthood. Which hand stays the warmest? The growing season lasts from 50 to 60 days. They breed for the first time about one year after they become adults.
