Did you know that tundra is one the coldest biomes of the world where very few plants and animals can survive? Tundra winters are cold with strong winds and summers are short with sun shining almost 24 hours a day. This biome does not sound very inviting, doesn't it? But who lives in tundra? What grows in tundra? Let's do some research together:
In National Geographic Virtual Library you will find many photos and articles about tundra and tundra animals and plants.
Let's not forget about World Book Encyclopedia with its excellent maps, illustrations and quality articles on tundra and many other topics.
Info Trac Junior Edition is another great resource to read articles on tundra and learn about other biomes of the world.
Many books in the library are your loyal friends while doing research. International Wildlife Encyclopedia and Wildlife and Plants of the World are ones of the many comprehensive encyclopedias you might use for your research on tundra plant and animal life. One can search these encyclopedias by an animal/plant common name or by its habitat.
