Coevolution Mechanisms

Camouflage- Many animals in the tundra are snow white, which allows them to blend in to their environment- Snowy Owls, Arctic Foxes, Arctic Hares, and Polar Bears are some examples.


Secondary Compound: Arctic Willow- During its best growing season, the Arctic Willow produces a pesticide so antagonists like insects, for example the Arctic Wholly Bear, cannot eat them.
