Transcript of Taiga
region: Scandinavia to the Pacific coast of Russia
, Asia, North
by Annie Luu
first is the level of organizations!
Level of Organization of Taiga
The Autotrophs and Heterotrophs of the Taiga...
Taiga Food Chain...
Now here are the pyramids that demonstrate the previous food chain
Next is the food web...
Is there any questions?
(If not, the next person please come up)
What do you think it is like in the Taiga?
How's the weather?
What do we, humans, do that can damage the Taiga?
An individual is anything that can breed and make babies.
A population is a group of the same organisms that live in the same place.
ex) a single bear
ex) a pack of wolves
A community is where all different populations live in the same area.
ex) a population of wolves, trees, a hare, a moose, owls, and a lynxe
The bioshpere is portions of the Earth that supports living things.
An ecosystem is all the biotic and abiotic things found in a particular area.
A biome is groups of ecosystems that have similar living things.
ex) a hare, grass, trees, snow, mountains, moose, wolves, owls, clouds
ex) Tundra, Taiga, Dessert
ex) the oceans and lands of Earth
They eat plants only
ex) cotton tail rabbit
They only eat meat
They eat both plants and animals
They eat dead things with no mouths
ex) honey fungus
They eat dead things with a mouth
ex) earth worm
Both of plants use
to obtain energy. They would need
CO2, H2O, and sunlight to make glucose.
after they die
When energy is being transferred to the next organism, only 10% of the amount of energy before travels on. 90% of it is lost as the last organism' body function: growing, reproducing, some non-digestable, some prey escape, and the rest are lost as heat.

As you go up the pyramids you will notice how the numbers decrease. This is because only 10% of the energy is able to transfer to the next organism. This causes the organism to eat more in order to gain more energy which makes the population of the last organism decrease. Still, there isn't enough calories to go around for everyone.
Because of its location, the winter nights seem to last longer then usual. It also snows to where there is about 13 to 30 inches of snow on the ground per year. This season usually lasts for 6 to 7 months. All the rivers and ponds would freeze up and the trees would be frosted
The temperature in the Winter can average from -65 F being the lowest and 30 F being the highest. During the Summer the temperature is 30 F being the lowest and 70 F being the highest. The nights with clear skies have colder temperatures then the nights with clouds.
Approximately every year Taiga receives about 12-33 inches of rain mostly during the summer. The amount of rainfall per year is about the same to the amount in the grasslands.
in snow. All the animals either adapt to the area, hibernate, or emigrate somewhere warmer.
There's only humidity during Summer and Spring. During Winter there's bitterly cold air and the fall is too cold as well.
Most of the snows falls during the winter and it usually snows about 15-20 inches.

* air * clouds * sunlight * temperature * rain
During the summer the days seem shorter and feel very humid and hot. This is the rainy season for Taiga and lasts about 3 to 4 months. Right now the light is more directly on Taiga because of
( also known as the Boreal forest)

Fall is the shortest season out of the four. Evergreen trees like there name will always be green and not turn into other colors and die. During the season everything that was all watery starts turning ice hard.
Spring makes the ponds melt, animals out of hibernation, and brings flowers. So it basically like a meltdown where everything old is gone and the new things come in. Like the birds emigrating back or the bears coming out of hibernation
to the sun.
Everyday the Taiga is being destroyed by us humans. In order for us to live we need wood and clear spaces to make houses and buildings. This will make a large scale of deforestation.
Because we are clearing most of the area, the habits' animals will have no home to live on. We also have factories which can cause pollution. There are also hunters out there to come and try to kill some the animals and skin them. What would happen if this keep continueing on?
