Kola Peninsula tundra

WWF Abstract

This tundra ecoregion is not only cold, but also very windy. Both these factors, along with the permafrost, limit the growth of most trees, yielding a landscape that is dominated by grasses, wildflowers, and sparse shrubs. Herds of reindeer visit these grasslands in the summer, when the regions turns from white to lush green and the flowers add a carpet of color to an otherwise barren scene.
