Transcript of The Taiga
Cool, breif summers (20 to 70 F) Preciptation/water: http://www.tutorvista.com/biology/abiotic-factors-of-the-taiga-biome 14 to 23 inches annually How Does it Affect The Taiga? Since the Taiga is very cold It makes: Soil decompose slower And makes rich soil develop slowly Few people & animals live there Few hours of sun per day, mostly dark Plants & Animals Balsam Fir
Eastern Red Cedar
White Spruce http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/taiga.htm American Black Bear
River otter American Black Bears are omnivores Bald Eagles are Carnivores Bobcats are Carnivores Canadian Lynx' are Carnivores Wolverine are omnivores Snowshoe Rabbits are herbivores Red foxes are omnivores Long-eared owls are carnivores Gray wolves are omnivores Grizzly Bears are omnivores River otters are omnivores http://www.cotf.edu/ete/modules/msese/earthsysflr/taigaA.html Animal Adaptations: Some Animals tend to hibernate when the temperatures drop In the cold, they adapted by producing a layer of insulating feathers or fur By seasonal change, they change colors of fur/feathers to protect them from predators http://www.mbgnet.net/bioplants/adapt.html Plant Adaptations: waxy coating on needles to prevent evaporation Needle-like leaves help reduce water loss and aids in the shedding of snow. The shape of many coniferous trees helps shed heavy snow to save branches from breaking Plants take advantage of the long hours of sunlight in the summer and grow tall and very quickly http://library.thinkquest.org/C0113340/text/biomes/biomes.tundra.animals.adaptations.html Decomposers: Fungi Honey Fungus Common Soil Bacteria Nematodes Moss Taigas are located in Northen parts of the world Due to cool temperatures, decomposition occurs slowly in the Taiga Undecayed Vegetaion builds up on the forest floors making it feel spongy.
