  • The Taiga is very cool all year round with many types of trees.

  • The soil in the Taiga is very thin and acidic. It’s not good for much growth.

  • The Taiga gets about 10-30 inches of rain per year.

  • In all there are more than 20 different species of plants and animals.


The taiga adaptations needed for survival
The TaigaAdaptations Needed for Survival

  • Conifers don’t drop their leaves to save energy and waxy needles on pines help conserve water through transpiration. Thick fur helps animals keep warm during the winter. Most animals that survive here camouflage themselves to blend in with the snow. Other animals migrate to a warmer area during the winter.


The taiga interactions of biotic and abiotic
The TaigaInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic

  • Biotic- Plant seeds provide food for small animals such as squirrels or birds.

  • Abiotic- The bogs and ponds in the Taiga provide a great summertime breeding place. Fires also help enrich the soil.


What is biodiversity
What is Biodiversity?

  • Biodiversity is the variety of plants, animals, and any other Biotic or Abiotic factors in a habitat.


How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem
How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem?

  • Biodiversity contributes to the sustainability of an ecosystem by giving humans a variety of plants and animals to live off of. Biodiversity also helps clean the ecosystem such as absorbing chemicals in wetlands or providing oxygen for us to breathe.
