The humans have negatively and positively affected the Tundra.
Today is changing very drastically and the Tundra Biome is being affected both positively and negatively. Humans are the primary reasons why this biome is being affected in so many different ways. When all is said and done, human influence in the tundra doesn't have a lot of positive effects on the tundra. The one big positive effect that human influence has on the tundra biome is that humans are trying to help out with problems that are happening there, such as oil spills, and trying to stop people from hunting there. Although, there are a lot of negative effects on the biome such as the climate and the organisms.
Negative affects on the Tundra
- Overhunting: Sailors overhunt musk oxen for the food and clothing
- Global Warming: Melting glaciers and permafrost flood areas and destroy plant species
- Overdevelopment: Many people are moving in to work in the mines and oil industry. Towns and roads are made for the increased population. Many of the animals’ migrations and feeding patterns are interrupted by developments.
- Pollution: Air pollution reduces the ozone layer and exposes tundra to harmful ultraviolet rays, which affects plants and animals life negatively.( Yola)
How can humans deliberatively or inadvertently alter the equilibrium?
Humans do this because they come to help out the place, and stop what is going on around the biome. They can also harm it because with some people wanting to do activities and start things and do a bunch of tests it's putting the biome at risk. When the Tundra is affected by being deliberatively altering the equilibruim because with the temperatures and things changing nature in in control. We don't expect the places and things to change which then affects everything inside that biome. Inadvertetly speaking it's being said that because of spilling oil and humans it's starting to change drastically.
Value of Biodiversity
Biodiversity is valuable in biomes especially in the Tundra biome because there is a low amount of biodiversity here, so if one population is fluctuated, more and more animals in the biome will be affected as well.
By adding these things into the Tundra a lot of things are being affected, and more electricity and things are being used harming the
