Transcript of Coniferous Forest

Abiotic factors within these biomes include temperature, sunlight, air, soil and water. They affect this ecosystem because when it is winter, the temperature drops so there is little sunlight, the air is chilly, and both the soil and water freeze. In the summer, the temperature increases, there is plenty of sunlight, the air is humid, the soil is dry and the water is warm unless there is large amounts of rain.
Coniferous Forest
Geographical Location
The Coniferous Forests are found mainly in the northern hemisphere, but can also be found in the southern hemisphere. The northern hemisphere includes North America, Russia, Europe, Asia, Japan and China. Here these forests are known as taiga and/or boreal forests.
Geographic location mapped
The best time of year to visit is in the middle of the season change because the winters are harsh and the summers are extremely humid
When visiting the Coniferous forest, it is recommended that you wear layered clothing in the winter and that you dress cool in the summer. Temperatures average between -40 to 20 degrees Celsius
Exciting things to do here include:
animal watching and sight seeing
Public parks and lands to visit here include:
Zion National park (located in the southwestern area of the U.S.)
Yellowstone National Park (located in Wyoming in the U.S.)
Abiotic Factors

Biotic Factors
Biotic factors within these biomes include the coniferous trees, birds, foxes, and small plants such as flowers. They affect this ecosystem because the coniferous trees provide the large amounts of fresh oxygen to the other organisms around them. The birds live off the small plants found here. The large animals live off of the smaller animals and regulate the population. And the smaller plants decorate the forest floor providing a magnificent scenery as well as food and shelter for the smaller creatures and insects.
Limiting Factors
Limiting factors are the density independent and density dependent factors within the ecosystem. They affect the biome because both factors correlate directly with the population. As the population increases so does the density dependent factors such as the amount of predation and competition. The independent factors affect the population the same regardless of size. This includes natural disasters such as wild fires and droughts.

Endangered Species
One endangered species is the Grizzly Bear. It's diet includes vegetation and animals. Getting food varies throughout the seasons. They can only eat whatever is available.
Energy Pyramid
A owl will hunt for a mouse.
A cougar will hunt for a deer.
There could be a secondary succession caused by a fire. A coniferous forest has a high chance of having a crown fire because a coniferous forest contains a lot of tall trees.
Reasons To Visit:
Excellent place for hiking
Clean air
Evergreen trees
Enjoy watching many animals
There is peace and quite
A chance to get away from the city
Opportunity for hunting
Able to go sight-seeing
Ferns, poison ivy, fire weed, mushrooms, poison oak and aspen trees are producers located in a
Coniferous Forest.
Primary- Columbines, mushrooms, ferns.
Secondary- Bald Eagle, Great Grey Owl, Monarch Butterfly.
Tertiary- Moose, Siberian Tiger, Kermode Bear.
Human Activity

The impact of human activity can greatly effect a coniferous forest. An example would deforestation. Where people go and cut down the trees. Without trees, there isn't a forest.
