Transcript of The Taiga

The Taiga By: Morgan Mcnew, Michelle Okpala, Melanie Gomez, Kimberley Nwokorie Where is it located???

The taiga is located primarily in the north near the arctic

Abiotic Factors Some of the biotic factors in the Taiga are the temperature, sunlight, soil, air, and water. Native plants and animals Plants: spruce, fir, and evergreen trees Animals: caribou, moose, elk, Siberian tiger Symbiotic relationships mutualism: moss growing on trees parasitism: aphids that eat lots of plants commensalism: birds nesting in trees predator/prey: a fox eating a bunny Taiga is not very biologically diverse because due to the lack of many different species of plants or animals. How biologically diverse is the taiga? Would it be affected if 3 organisms disappeared? If organisms disappeared from your ecosystem things would be out of balance and the food chain would be messed up and some things wouldn't be able to survive and then that would lead to even more organisms not surviving. What are examples of competitions of resources? Lots of the resources that animals fight over are food, water, shelter, and their territory. Things to do and see: What are some activities that can be done in the Taiga? wildlife watching, fishing, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and ice skating Things to do and see: What would be some points of interest to visitors? Beuatiful sights, silents days and nights, and camping. Things to do and see: What are nearby biomes that that people can visit? What is the monthly precipitation average? Grasslands What is the monthly temperature average? What are some catastrophic events that are possible and how would they affect the biotic factors? What are some threats to the taiga? Acid rain caused by pollution, and destruction of the environment. Also something that affects taigas are soil depletion. What are some endangered species and how would their extinction affect the taiga? Are there fears of climate shift? Would it affect the biotic factors in the taiga? Yes there is a climate change due to large deforestation and pollution .Animals that live in the taiga are mostly affected, like caribou, wolves, eagles and bears. Why is the taiga important to the rest of the world? How would the world be affected without the taiga?

Taiga Temperatures

Low High

Winter -65 F (-54 C) 30 F (-1 C)

Summer 20 F (-7 C) 70 F (21 C) In the winter, the low would be -54C and the high would be -1C
and in the summer, the low would be -7C and the high would be 21C Total Monthly Precipitation
(in rain and snowfall)

inches centimeters

Summer 12-33 30-85

In a taiga it would probably rain about 12-33 inches or 30-85 centimeters per month It would depend on how big or small the
event would be, but it may cause
extinction or it could cause the food web
to get messed up. The taiga helps the environment and humanity in many ways. The taiga filters millions of liters of water everyday. The massive number of trees in the taiga remove carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen. library.thinkquest.org/08aug/00473/taiga.html The taiga gives off many resources that
humanity needs like oxygen and water.
