Plants of the Alpine Tundra. The Alpine Tundra is a biome located in the extreme northern and arctic regions. So, because of the cold, chilly weather, the alpine tundra doesn't flourish with different species of plants.

The biome contains very few trees and is filled with marshy plains. The great variety of mountain plants is why Ben Lawers NNR has been in the care of the National Trust for Scotland since It’s also why it has multiple designations for its natural heritage.

Ben Lawers NNR has the most extensive populations of arctic-alpine plants in Britain. ARCTIC PLANTS. Approximately 1, species of plants live on the Arctic tundra, including flowering plants, dwarf shrubs, herbs, grasses, mosses, and lichens.

The tundra is characterized by permafrost, a layer of soil and partially decomposed organic matter that is frozen year-round.

Only a thin layer of soil, called the active layer, thaws and. Alpine plants adapted to summer drought stress can carry on photosynthesis at low water potentials; alpine or arctic plants of moist sites cannot do this.

Breaking of dormancy: controlled by mean temperatures near or above 0° C., and in some cases by photoperiod by: Among the attributes of Arctic-alpine plants are that these flowering plants grow in low mats or ‘cushions’and they have a short flowering season, which protects them from the extreme elements found in these areas.
