Biomes: The Taiga

298 Words2 Pages
Biomes are ecosystems that are definable by their temperature, precipitation, vegetation, and geographical location. Examination of abiotic factors can be used to predict and explain the presence of biotic organisms that are found in a particular biome. The biome I chose seemed unique. My biome is the Taiga. Taiga is a Russian word for forest. The animal I chose was the elk which is also found in the Taiga. The Taiga is very large and is located across North America, Asia and Europe and the climate is extremely cold. Temperatures can drop lower than -76 degrees. It has a very large temperature range between seasons, but the long and cold winter is the dominant feature. It is below freezing for about six months and is filled with lots of snow.
