The tundra is characterized as lands with shrubby vegetation, composed of dwarf shrubs, sedges and grasses, mosses, and lichens, which is adapted to harsh conditions with an extremely cold climate. The biodiversity is low, there is poor nutrients availability and little precipitation with a short season (the Arctic summer) of growth and reproduction. There are alpine and arctic tundras. They all belong to the tundra biome.
A biome can be defined* as a major community on earth with a predominant vegetation and adapted organisms to that particular environment.
