Alpine regions

Alpine tundra is an ecosystem that occurs in mountains worldwide. The high altitude climate is too cold and windy to support a wide variety of trees. The flora of the alpine tundra is characterized by dwarf shrubs close to the ground. The cold climate of the alpine tundra is caused by the low air pressure, and is similar to polar climate.
