Transcript of Boreal Forest/Taiga

Boreal Forest/Taiga By Courtney Willey Abiotic Factors Threats to the
Ecosystem Adaptation Because the Boreal Forest is so cold many animals have trouble staying warm. Many animals in this biome have adapted to the enviroment and how they do this is is because most of them have small extremities and extra insulation, also known as fat or down feathers. Some have extra insulation to keep warm over the winter and survive, but some don't. Those animals who don't will migrate to the South every year and will stay there until its starts getting cold there or until the season is over in the Boreal Forest area. Commensalism Grass seeds are attached to the fur of a moose and are transported, the grass gets a free ride and the moose is not affected. -Logging -Flooding from the hydroelectric projects Mutualism -Exploration and development of oil and natural gas The Boreal Forest is known to have long cold winters but they are also know to have mild summers that are long enough to allow the ground to thaw. The Biotic Forest also has high humidity levels but not only that the soil is very poor, they are full of nutrients and acid. Not only are the winters long and cold and the summers are mild but precipitation in the Boreal Forest is very moderate.

Relationships Fungi helps the algae in absorbing nutrients and Algae helps Fungi with photosynthesis, both are benefitted. Parasitism Brain Worms infest a White-Tailed Deer and a Caribou, the Deer and the Caribou are affected or harmed and the Brain Worm benefits. Location: The Boreal Forest is located along the northern edge of the temperate zone located in the Northern Hemisphere.
