The Tundra biome represents 6% of the emerged grounds. Arctic tundra occurs north of the Taiga belt. The average low temperatures and short summer let the soil permanently frozen from 50cm depth down. Trees cannot grow in such thin soil, nutrient-poor environment. This is the kingdom of lichens, mosses and heathes. Despite these conditions, the biodiversity and natural wonders of that biome are amazing! This mission aims to celebrate wildlife that lives and survives up there.
