The Boreal Forest

by Bryan DIaz

Location

It extends over North America & Eurasia. Around the Northern Hemisphere and on mountain range where the temperature is low to where it limits the growth to only a couple times a year. It mostly around the cold temperature and doesn't seem to grow anywhere where it has high temperature.

Climate

Its climate is the cold. Mostly grows around the cold area. Its average daily temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. During the cold season that last about 6 months they only grow in the sort of climate. The climate around the area is long, usually very long colds winters and short, cool to mid summers.

Organism Adaptions

They need to be able to adapt to the changing season. Be able to stand with the cold winters and be able to find food when there is less supplies to get any.

Dominate Vegetation

Needleleaf trees are the dominate vegetation in the boreal biome. In North American one or two species are the dominate in the area. Spruce is dominate in the area in each climate changes and it still grows everywhere.

Abiotic Factors in Boreal Forest

Temperature - The boreal forest has very long, cold winters and short, mild summers. Because of its location. Cold air coming down from the arctic creates cold winters for at least to 6 to 7 months.


Sunlight - Since their location they are giving at least 20 hours sunlight. During the winter the are giving about many a few hours.


Precipitation - The get about to 8 to 79 inches of precipitation each year. Since its mostly cold around the area basically all of it is snow.


These Abiotic Factors make a huge factor in plants and animals. Making it necessary to adapt to the cold conditions.
