Taiga

Olivia Deddens

Taiga- a sometimes swampy coniferous forest of high northern latitudes, especially that between the tundra and steppes of Siberia and North America.

Located in Canada, Scandinavia, Russia, and many other countries.

Humans impact the taiga by cutting down its forests, hunting its animals, and by causing global warming, which melts the ice and extends the summer period. Animals have to adapt to warmer temperatures.

Taigas range over many mountains and lakes are common.

The soil is infertile and forms slowly. It has a very high acid content due to the pine needles that make up the soil, so very few plants grow there. There is a layer of permafrost in some areas.

Honey fungus (Amarilla)
