Tundra is a biome characterized by low temperatures. There are two kinds of tundra, though. Arctic (or Antarctic) tundra consists of permafrost, while alpine tundra does not. Instead, alpine tundra lacks trees.
In physical geography, tundra is an area where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons. The term tundra comes from tūndâr, which means “uplands, treeless mountain tract.” There are two types of tundra: Arctic tundra (which also occurs in Antarctica) and alpine tundra. In tundra, the vegetation is composed of dwarf shrubs, sedges and grasses, mosses, and lichens. Scattered trees grow in some tundra. The ecotone (or ecological boundary region) between the tundra and the forest is known as the tree line or timberline.
A tundra is an area which is treeless due to low temperatures. Arctic tundra and alpine tundra are two types of tundra which are located between the icecaps and the tree lines of these areas.
