Migrating to the Americas: Beringia Land Features

Beringia is the name scientists of today call the ancient land bridge between northern Asia and North America. It linked the regions that are now Siberia--a part of Russia--and Alaska. Beringia was uncovered only during the Ice Ages. This land bridge was about 1,000 miles wide. Its landscape was a combination of tundra and steppe, or grassy plain. The plain provided right grazing land for woolly mammoths, mastodons, horned bison, and other plant-eating mammals. When the world's glaciers melted at the end of the last ice Age, the oceans rose, and Beringia disappeared once again.
