The article does not particularly state the date of publication however the picture provided is taken in 2004 therefore the article has the possibility of being outdated by around 10 years or so. The information presented is stated to describe the local area and geography of the biome. The article seems to provide basic information however it cannot be officially credible due to the fact that sufficient credentials are not provided. Although the credentials are not provided, a bibliography of the source where the picture of the biome is taken is provided and the information provided on the topic is backed up by other resources.

Watch this episode of Eco Geeks about the alpine tundra on HowStuffWorks. Different tree and plant life grow according to the environment at that elevation.

Shyam Sheladia's insight:

 

Video

 

Positives: Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, Purpose

Negatives: Currency

 

“HowStuffWorks is a credible resource due to the fact that the videos are authorized by professional scientists alongside men and women who have degrees specified for scientifically researched based projects. The individuals within the video are specialized researchers with degrees that allow the public and the scientific community to rely and trust upon there word. The only negativity of this video is the fact that its publication date is not specifically mentioned however based upon the content and presented technology it can be concluded that it is a bit outdated. “HowStuffWorks,” is inter-related with the Discovery Channel therefore making it highly credible. The video presents simple and nominal information regarding the alpine tundra biome therefore allowing any reader to have the opportunity to understand the basics of the alpine tundra biome. The information provided within the video can easily be defended and verified with other subsequent reliable resources as there is no specific bias present within the researchers who are basically providing the information regarding the biome without skewing any information.
