Snow can slip off - Downward sloping branches, Stop water being lost from evaporation - Evergreen needles, It’s only the soil that defrosts in the spring - Shallow roots near the soil, Protects from low temperature - Thick bark, Protection from wind - Crops grown in greenhouses, Allows growth during dark winter - Ultra-violet lamps are used, To survive early frosts and cold nights - Farmers grow crops with strong roots, increase friction / grip / traction in the snow - Snow chains are fitted to vehicle wheels, they don’t sink into the defrosting ground in spring - Buildings are built on stilts, Warm air isn't lost to the outside - Buildings have insulated layers with triple glazed windows, very little skin is exposed to the wind - Thermal materials make for good clothing, Which traps pockets of warm air close the animal and doesn’t conduct it outside - Caribou have hollow outside hair on their coasts, Diet consists of meat, dairy and fish - fur can be used for clothing - Rearing animals is the main form of agriculture, Larger surface area to stop sinking into the waterlogged ground - Caribou have extra wider feet, So snow is easily lost, reducing weight - Buildings have high-pitched steep roofs, Geothermal is the easiest way to gain energy for day to day use - Coal and oil are trapped under frozen ground (permafrost),
