Transcript of The Taiga
Covers most of North America and Eurasia
Köppen's Dfc climate category
generalized by cold, temperatures in 50's to 60's
Ashy gray, acidic soil
Long, harsh winters that last up to six months and short summers.
Limiting factors: water, forest fire, and temperature
Plants and Adaptation
shallow root system
Animals and Adaptations
Roots and Tubers
Fish and rodents
Critically endangered, 3500-4000 left
Third most endangered crane species in the world
Threatened by interruptions in migratory patterns/sites, wintering and breeding sites
ex: building of the Three Gorges Dam
thick coat (7 cm in winter)
Arctic Russia (tundra) and Western Siberia (taiga)
Feeds, nests and roosts in the wetlands of the Taiga
Prefers to nest in shallow fresh water that provides good visibility
beautiful coat and bones
loss of land
little genetic diversity
increase prey pop.
reduce illegal practices
hunts sika deer, roe, badgers, mice
isolated in Russian Far East
few in Jilin Province
Habitat & Niche
subspecies (Panthera pardus)
closely related to lions, jaguars, tigers
Most closely related to other crane species
Bright white plumage
Dark primary feathers
Steps to Protect
Organizations: ICF, UNEP and International Crane Organization
Strategies: Protect key wetlands and migration routes, education of populace
Bees and flowers
Winter tick and moose
Moss and trees
Siberian Crane and fish
Deer and squirrel compete over plants
Grasses and sedges
