   Alpine Tundra is a biome in Zoo Tycoon 2.

Zoopedia Description

  • The Alpine biome, similar to the tundra biome, is found in high mountain areas around the world. Harsh conditions cause vegetation to grow low to the ground in alpine meadows.
  • Tundra is the treeless plain that lies north of the northern coniferous forests and on the Antarctic Peninsula in the southern hemisphere.
  • Trees cannot survive in this biome because of the cold temperatures, high winds, and heavy snowfall, as well as the permafrost, a layer of permanently frozen subsoil. Plant life tends to grow low to the ground. In the summer, large numbers of birds migrate to the tundra to feed on insects. Other animals found in this area include reindeer, wolves, fox, voles, and lemmings.
