Beringia

Beringia: A region between Western Siberia and Northern America, which includes the Bering land bridge. Mainly Asian people and animals used the bridge to migrate over to North America. The Bering bridge is roughly 1000 miles long. It is assumed that the Bering land bridge brought present-day Alaska and Eastern Russia together at many times during the ice ages.

    The last sentence of your definition (“It is assumed…”) is nearly verbatim from the knowledgerush.com website. Even though you cite the website, that is considered plagarism, so you need to change it. Take the information that you read on the different websites and put it together into your own words. It may help to find another website that is not a dictionary site, so they give more description to help flesh out the idea for you.
