Thrilling Taiga Biome
In this presentation you will go on an adventure through the Taiga Biome. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
By: Anna Kraszewski, Kerstyn Johnson, and Annie Yao
If you're in the northern part of the northern Hemisphere you'd be in the Taiga biome. This biome is located in Europe, North America, and Asia (Right below the Tundra biome).
Have you ever wondered what our world is made up of? Well where ever you are in the world you are in a biome.

The biome we are talking about today is made up of swamp coniferous or boreal forests, of high northern latitudes. It is the largest continuous biome in the world. This biome can be terrestrial or aquatic. We are talking about the Taiga biome.
Now let's talk about the climate in Taiga. The weather in Taiga is very extreme. Don't be mad about the climate in New Jersey because the climate in the winter, the temperture can go as low as -60 degrees!

If you are animal lover, you'd better listen up, because we're about tell you what animals can call the Taiga Biome their home sweet home. The animals that live there are: the American black bear, bald eagle, bobcat, Canadian lynx, gray wolf, grizzly bear, long-eared owl, red fox, river otter, snowshoe rabbit, wolverine, etc.
These animals adapt by migrating because of the low climate or produce a layer of insulating feathers to keep warm.
Don't you just love going to the garden with
your family? You can visit a garden in the Taiga
biome too! The plants that live there are balsam fir, black spruce, douglas-fir, eastern red cedar, jack pine, paper birch, suberian spruce, white fir, white poplar, whitle spruce, etc. Their adaption includes shape, leaf, type root system, and also color. As you may know plants get their energy from soil and the sun.

Do you know the average of rain it rains every year?
Well, in the Taiga biome the average of rainfall is about 30
inches per year.
Do you like rain? Well, some people do and some people don't. The average of rain falls per year in the Taiga biome is about 30 in. In New Jersey it rains in an average 45.33 in. So, in NJ it rains more than in the Taiga biome. The water sources in Taiga includes bogs, rivers, fens, lakes and ponds.
Fun Facts:
fires are very common
not a lot of plant variety
trees grow taller when Taiga is warm.
covers 11% of the world and 29% of the worlds forest.
not many animals live there
Moscow and Toronto are located
six months the temperature is below freezing
Thanks For Watching Annd
Biotic Factors: Hares, owls, reindeer,
foxes, eagles, beavers, wolves, etc.
Abiotic Factors: Rocks, soil, sunlight, etc.
Food Web:
Do you know what a food web is? It is a system of interlocking and interdependent food chains. The food web of the Taiga biome goes like this: the decomposers are fungi and worms. The main producers of the food web are grass, berries, and seeds. The herbivores are the deer, marrnot, and chipmunk. The omnivore is the grizzly bear. The carnivore is the red-tailed hawk. Yum, yum!
Thanks so much for staying for the whole ride!
