Plants in Cold Environments

Plants in Cold Environments

This presentation starts by inviting students to consider how they would design a flower if they wanted it to have a chance of surviving in the tundra. It then explores the qualities that plants need to cope with this kind of environment, whether tiny flowers or huge pine trees. It examines why the tundra is threatened by climate change and asks what harm is being done to human settlements by changes to the tundra biome. The presentation has a number of tasks for individual and group work, some engaging pictures and begins with an unusual starter activity.
