Above the Timberline: The Alpine Tundra Zone
Remote and baffling except to the most daring climbers, the high peaks are a world apart where only the most tenacious of living things endure. Forests give way to stunted vegetation and finally to the hardiest of plants adapted to the rigours of cold and wind. Only animals such as the mountain goat and bighorn sheep are found here. In true-life colour this film presents an account of life at this specialized level.
