Alpine Climate

Climate, plants, and animals


Via Justin Jose
Leah Tepera's insight:

This shows accuracy, and relevance because this directly talks about the alpines and tundras. The climate of the area is dry and cold. It is called a alpine tundra because it is similar to the mountainous alpines and the dry cold tundras.

Biomes

 Climate, Soil, Water

Leah Tepera's insight:

This article is very relevant to our project because it outlines all of the biomes so we are able to compare the different biomes. It gives basic information about each of the biomes so that you have background information to start your research. Although it is not too current, biomes don't change over time so the information is still valid.

I chose tho include this source because it provides gneral information of all biomes fo a reader to glance at before engaging fully in the selected biome. It  also provides the necessay basics of the tundra biome which is beneficial because it evaluets the relvance and purpose of the biomes of the CRAAP test

The purposes of this is to show the relationship between animals in the alpine tundra. They all depend on each other and rely on each other heavily. The purpose is shown well in how these animals in the tundra engage with each other.
