Asia

Asia

Asia is the largest continent with an area equivalent to 30% of the world's land mass, and the continent with the largest population. Habitats ranging from tundra with permafrost in the north to tropical rain forest in southeast and with a huge variation in between. 

In the north animals are adapted to long, hard winters with scarce food resources. In the lush south, food resources are far better and the density of animals is higher. An example is the tiger. Tigers in the north (Siberian tiger) have huge territories of up to 1000km2 while territories of tigers in the southeast (eg. Indian tiger) are not more than about 100km2 and often much smaller.
