Scotia Sea Islands tundra

WWF Abstract

Most of the islands of the Scotia Sea are rugged, mountainous, and glaciated--perpetually covered in snow and ice over at least part of the islands. But the cold temperatures and snowy conditions haven’t kept biodiversity away. This ecoregion supports a number of different plant and animal communities adapted to antarctic conditions, like moss and lichen communities, penguins, and seals.
