Tundra

TUNDRA (a Russian word, signifying a marshy plain), in physical geography, the name applied to the treeless and often marshy plains which border the arctic coasts of Europe, Asia and North America. The Russian tundra, apart from the arctic conditions of climate and flora, may be compared with the steppes farther south.
