Rainfall- The total yearly perception in the taiga is between 12-33 inches. Although the cold winters have some snowfall, most of the precipitation comes during the warm, humid summer months.

Temperature- Temperatures vary from -54°C to 30°C (-65°F to 86°F) throughout the whole year. In much of the Taiga, -20°C (-4°F) would be a typical winter day and 18°C (64°F) would be an average summer day.

Seasonal Fluctuations- From Winter to Summer, all the biome does is slightly stops snowfall and the rise in temperature occures.

Global Positioning

This biome is located in the Northern part of the Northern Hemisphere and is in North America, Asia, and Europe. It stretches across Alaska, Canada, Scandinavia, and Russia.


The population of Ermine in a tundra is around 25,000 and the density affects the biomehurting the population.

Carrying capacity is the number of living organisms and natural selection.

The number of microorganisms in a biome will increase if exponential growth occured.

Two dependent factors would include light and predation and independent factors would include temperature and blizzards.


Genetic Drift- Change in frequency of a gene varient.

Mutations- A permanent change of a nucleotide sequence.

Natural Selection- Survival of the fitest

Gene Flow- Transfer of all allels from one population to another.

Nonrandom Mating- Two individuals in a population will mate.

Definitions for Plants

Stomata- Absorbs water from the leaves

Roots- Absorbs water from the soil/ground

Xylem- Transports water and minerals up

Pholem- Transports sugars down

Flowers- Provide Carbon Dioxide for the environment

Cones- Food source for

Meristems- Helps and supports the roots

Seeds- Allows new plants to grow

Animals in a Taiga with their Scientific Name

Minks- Neovision vision

Ermine- Mustela erminea

Arctic Fox- Valpes lagopus- It's thick coat helps survive- It uses sexual reproduction- It is a heterotrophic- It is Eukaryote- It's population was 5000 as of 2010 and they are endangered and it's fur color is an example of adaptation.

Snowy Owl- Bubo scandiacus

Cottontail Rabbit- Sylvilagus

Moose- Alces alces

Wolverine- Gulo gulo
