Human Impacts: Not many humans live in tundra regions, however they are still heavily impacted by human activities. Pesticide runoff can kill insects that birds rely on for food, and pollution from mining and drilling has harmed the air, lakes, and rivers.

    Tundra, a major zone of treeless level or rolling ground found in cold regions, mostly north of the Arctic Circle (Arctic tundra) or above the timberline on high mountains (alpine tundra). Tundra is known for large stretches of bare ground and rock and for patchy mantles of . Book Description: Canada's Vegetation includes comprehensive sections on tundra, forest-tundra, boreal forest and mixed forest transition, prairie (steppe), Cordilleran environments in western North America, temperate deciduous forests, and wetlands.

    tundra-- taiga-- temperate deciduous forest-- grasslands-- desert-- savanna--tropical rainforests. Grasslands in North America are called prairie, in Eurasia they are called steppe (in Hungary it is the puszta), and in South America pampa. Grasslands support a large number of herbivores from antelopes, horses and bisons to mice. Climate-induced tree response in the forest-tundra and forest-steppe ecotones V.I. KHARUK, K. J. RANSON V.
