Examine just a small section of tundra, and you will find it is covered with dozens of species of grasses, wildflowers, berries, mosses, and lichens. In summer, over 300 species of vascular plants fill the air with sweet fragrance and display every color imaginable. The trees and shrubs change to rich oranges, reds, and yellows during the fall season. To learn more about the common wild flora you'll find at Bering Land Bridge, check out the links to the left.
