Competition/Cooperation between organisms in Taiga

Red foxes and wolves fight for food and limited resources in the Taiga because there is only so much resources. Redwood and moss on the other hand get along very well. The Redwood tree gives the moss a place to live while the moss protects the tree. This is an example of mutualism.

Environment Issues

Natural wildfires burn down the forest everyday. Since trees would burn, more plants would regrow and allow new species to adapt because evergreen trees were the only tree. Humans are also a big threat to Taiga because they want to harvest its resources which interferes with the wild life.
