Transcript of Tundra

The Taiga is a Russian word for Forest and is the largest biome in the World. It stretches from over Eurasia and North America. The winters are very cold with only snow falling. Summers can be warm, rainy, and humid.
The climate in the Taiga is determined by Köppen's Dfc climate category. It has harsh, cold artic airs, with exceptionally cold blowing winds. Temperatures may drop below freezing on nights.

Winter months contain freezing cold temperatures and lasts six to seven months. Winter's lowest temperature ay range to -65 degrees and its highest only being 30 degrees
While summer may contain a hot, rainy, and short season. Summers highest temperature reaches up to 70 degrees and its lowest may reach 30 degrees.

Taiga plants range from different types. Some types include Black Spruce, White Spruce, or even a Douglass-fir, Balsam Fir, Eastern Red Cedar, Jack Pine, Paper Birch, Siberian Spruce, and White Poplar.
In the Taiga you can mostly find mammals of all shorts. They can range from a snowshoe rabbit to a Grizzly Bear. Some more types of animals found there are the American Black Bear, Bald Eagle, Bobcat, Canadian Lynx, Gray Wolf, Long-Eared Owl, Red Fox, River Otter, and Wolverines.
The Taiga can be found all around the world from Alaska, to Canada, Scandinavia, Russia and China. The Taiga climate is only found in the Northern hemisphere because there isn't enough landmass in the Southern hemisphere to create a Taiga climate there.
Fires are very common in the Taiga. They are necessary to help get rid of dead and sick trees or plants.
Most of the biome is uninhabited by people, except for Toronto and Moscow.
Although there are not many types of animals within the Taiga, it contains lots of insects.
The plant variety cant extend due to the fact that only certain plants can withstand the harsh climates in the Taiga.
