Perfectly suited for today's science curriculum, this series explores life in the biomes and habitats around the globe. Each book examines ecological regions and important environmental concepts. Readers will learn about Earth's plants and animals that inhabit those regions. The alpine tundra is the only biome that one has to climb a mountain to reach. The ground is rocky and only a few animals can be found. Plants that grow here are tiny and can easily be overlooked. Breathing the air at this elevation can be difficult. Not only is the air cold, it also contains less oxygen than it does at ground level. This book takes the reader high above sea level to explore the habitat of the alpine tundra.
