On the continent, there are two types of grasses that grow on the Western side of the Antarctic Peninsula -- the warmest area of the continent. Otherwise, this continent, which covers 10% of the surface of the Earth is covered with an ice sheet -- at least 98% of it is. It's too cold to support botany on Antarctica.
