hello Siberian Tigers Siberian (or Amur) tigers are the world's largest cats. They live primarily in eastern Russia's birch forests, though some exist in China and North Korea. There are an estimated 400 to 500 Siberian tigers living in the wild, and recent studies suggest that these numbers are stable. BackGround :) Tigers are the largest of all wild cats and are renowned for their power and strength. There were once eight tiger subspecies, but three became extinct during the 20th century. Over the last hundred years, hunting and forest destruction have reduced overall tiger populations from hundreds of thousands to perhaps 5,000 to 7,000. Tigers are hunted as trophies and also for body parts that are used in traditional Chinese medicine. All five remaining tiger subspecies are endangered, and many protection programs are in place. Poaching is a reduced—but still very significant—threat to Siberian tigers. History Impact on Ecosystems? In the Siberian Tigers ecosystem the Siberian Tiger is the apex predator. Thier are not many reptiles because of the freezing temperatures. The Siberian Tiger feeds on warmer blooded, medium sized carnivores. Rarely does it feed on small carnivores. That is taken care of by the medium carnivores. The small carnivores feed on the herbivores. The herbivores then feed on the scarce, cold resistant plants and trees, mostly firs and birch, which construct most of the autotrophs in the area with the massive forests that once covered the area before man destroyed and forested many of them Effects on Society.
