Zoo Tycoon 2
Ice Sheets & Polar Waters
Cool Eutrophic

Tundra is a biome in Zoo Tycoon 2.


Found at the poles, these waters tend to be covered in ice. The climate here is persistently cold and snowy. In the Arctic Ocean, a sheet of ice covers the water and many species have adapted to live over and under the ice. Conservely, Antarctica is a continent covered in ice with an ice shelf extending into the ocean. Phytoplankton are the main producers in these waters as close to zero plants can live in these cold waters.
