Steppes of Central Asia. In the zone of Central and Oriental Europe the
Density of population is high.
The tradicionals activities in the taiga were the hunt, the fishing and the
Ranching of reindeers.
The modern activities of the taiga are related to the exploitation of the
wood.In the meadow the mechanised agriculture and in the steppes,
The farming of the cotton and rise.

Climate type :
Cold, temperatures as low as -50 ºC in winter and up to +10ºC in
Low precipitation (around 300 mm per year), which falls as snow.
Trees can't grow at very low temperatures. There are only small
shrubs and loww vegetation like moss and lichen.

The fauna is protected from the cold by abundant hair and thick
layers of fat. In the polar ica-cap only seals,penguins and polar bears
live there.In the tundra the fauna is more varied.
LIFE IN THE POLAR CLIMATE
The population is very scanty. In the north pole the eskimoes live, in
the north of Scandinavia, the lapps and in Siberia, the yakuti. The
south pole was deserted but now there is life.
The traditional activities of the Arctic have been the fishing of
whales, seals and walruses, from them food, skins and oil were
obtained to light up, the hunt of birds and polar bears, and also
ranching of reindeers.
The modern activities in the Arctic are the estabulada ranching and

Climate Type :
● Cold: very cold in winter and cool in summer.
● High precipitation, often falls as snow.
● Temperatures are lower and precipitation is higher at highers altitudes.
The vegetation changes with altitude. Trees can only grow below the
tree line. Also, fewer plants grow in windy areas.
At the highest altitudes, there is only low vegetation like moss, lichen
HEATHLAND OR MOOR
Above the tree line there are only shrubs and low vegetation.
Below the three line, there is taiga, which is a forest with conifers like
pine and fir.
The fauna changes accordng to the altitude and the latitude. It includes
animals as the mountain goat and different types of birds of prey.
LIFE IN THE ALPINE CLIMATE
The population of the high mountain is scanty because of the cold and
to the lack of oxygen. There are many of population in the middle
mountain of the hot zone, while in the temperate zone of the middle
mountain there is few population due to abundant snowfalls in winter.
The most predominant traditional activities in the mountains of the
hot zone are the agrarian activities as the farming of corn, potato, coffee
and vegetables. And in the mountains of the temperate region, it is the
ranching and the forest exploitation.
The modern activities in the hot zone are the farming of plantation and
the cattle ranching. In the temperate region, the extraction of minerals ,
the hiking, the mountain-climbing among others.
