Walid: The taiga biome is mostly located in the northern hemisphere. It is the largest terrestrial biome in the world. It takes up 27% of the world. The word Taiga comes from a Russian Origin.
Miguel: When you're inside the boundaries of the biome some of the trees and plants that could be found are the Balsam fir, Douglas-firs, the Eastern Red Cedar, Jack Pine, and Birch Tree's. All firs and hemlocks are thick and have waxy needles that prevent water from evaporation. The Balsam Fir is a small medium sized tree that could grow up to 40 to 80 feet tall. The Douglas-firs tree is a little smaller than the Balsam Fir. The Douglas-firs tree grows up to 40 to 60 feet tall and 15 to 25 feet wide. ...view middle of the document...
It is not clear whether the slow-growing coniferous forests can recover. There are other threats but perhaps the most serious is Global Warming. As the planet warms the southern reaches of the boreal forest will become warm enough for deciduous trees to outcompete the conifers and replace them. This additional release of greenhouse gasses could accelerate global warming even further.
Miguel: Because a trees leaves doesn't fall of the plant in the winter which is good because it takes lots of energy for a plant to regrow its leaves. Also plants get their energy from the soil and the sun. This is bad because the sun usually remains low in the sky during the winter. Another reason is because the ground is cold the soil are so cold the soil don’t have nutrients. Therefor the tree get their energy from their leaves. Therefor this tells you that there is high precipitation in the Taiga forests.
Charlie: The grey willow tree, the white spruce, grass, and aquatic grass are the producers of the Taiga. The ground squirrels, snowshoe hares, insects, and moose are our primary consumers. Then comes the tertiary consumers which are northern hammer hawks.
Walid: Come to the one of many park located in a taiga biome is the Wood Buffalo National Park. The parks temperature ranges from 10 degrees Celsius and 30 degrees Celsius.
