Transcript of The Taiga
What is a biome?
The Taiga is a northern biome located below the tundra biome. It has mainly spruce, pine, and fir trees. The Taiga is also the largest biome.
There are 2 main seasons in the Taiga. Winter and Summer. Spring and Fall are so short that they hardly exist. Fall is the shortest of all.
Temperatures of Winter and Summer
Winter's lowest temperature : -65°F.
Winter's highest temperature : 30° F.
Summer's lowest temperature : 30° F.
Summer's highest temperature : 70° F.
In the taiga it is colder than what we are used to in the U.S. As said in the slide before -65 degrees F is how much it can go up to in the winter. That's why there are not as much animals in the Taiga as ther are in the other biomes.
Some biotic things in the taiga are animals, such as American Black Bear, Snowshoe Rabbit, and the Grizzily bear, the trees there, and grass. Some abiotic things are soil, air,and water.

First of all, what is a biome? A biome is a large gathering of similar ecosystems. They are found all over the world.
Thanks For Watching
One example for interdependence in the taiga is between the trees and animals. The trees rely on animals for carbon dioxide and the animals depend on the trees for carbon dioxide.
Human Impact on the Taiga
Humans impact the Taiga by deforestation. Deforestation is happening because we are cutting down the trees
Coniferous trees are also known as evergreens. They have long, thin waxy needles. The wax gives them some protection from freezing temperatures and from drying out. Evergreens don't lose their leaves in the winter like deciduous trees. They keep their needles all year long. The dark color of evergreen needles allows them to absorb heat from the sun and also helps them start photosynthesis early.
Hunters and the Hunted
Animals of the taiga tend to be predators like the lynx and members of the weasel family like wolverines, bobcat, minks and ermine. They hunt herbivores like snowshoe rabbits, red squirrels and voles, a mouse-like animal.Red deer, elk, and moose can be found in regions of the taiga where more deciduous trees grow.
