My Favorite Biome: Boreal Forest

Boreal Forests

             Boreal forests, also known as taiga, can be found about 50 degrees and 60 degrees north and are mostly made up of conifers. They lie south of the tundra and north of the deciduous foresets and grasslands. They are made up of slow growing plants due to the cold temperatures and short growing season. Prominent tree species found within boreal forests include: birch, hemlocks, maples, pines, spruce, alder and ceder.
