Greatest diversity in species of any biome
Vertical Stratification (Canopy - Stratum - Ground floor).
Warm climate near equator.
Lots of precipitation. Chaparral Found between the 30 and 40 latitudes.

Usually have mild rainy winters and long, hot, dry summers.

Characterized by dense, spiny shrubs with tough evergreen leaves.

Prone to frequent fires.

Chapparal is found in the Mediterranean region, as well as along the coastlines of California and Chile


Chaparral Taiga Taiga, also known as coniferous or boreal forest, is the largest terrestrial biome on earth.

Extends in a broad band across North America, Europe, and Asia to the southern border of the arctic tundra.

Found at cool high elevations in the more temperate latitudes, for example, in much of the mountainous western region of North America.

Long, cold winters, and short, occasionally warm, wet summers are typical of this region.

The soil is thin, nutrient poor,and acidic which contributes to its plant life. These include different species of spruce, pine, or fir, and often there is little undergrowth present.
