What's The Coniferous Forest Like?
The Coniferous Forest is named after its many Conifer trees. They grow from the acidic soil that gets 300 to 900 millimeters of rain averagely a year. Some of the mammals that live here include moose, deer, reindeer or caribou, mice and squirrels. The predators include wolves, lynxes, bears, foxes and wolverines.
The tall trees in the Coniferous Forest are Biotic.
The Foxes in the Coniferous Forest are also Biotic!
Bears in the Coniferous Forest are biotic.
All water (not including fish, etc.) is abiotic
The snow in the winter is also abiotic.
Another abiotic feature in the Coniferous Forest is the many, many, many rocks.
How Humans Help and Harm:
Humans help the Coniferous Forest by setting up recreational parks and make stands against poachers.
Humans hurt the Coniferous Forest by cutting down the trees and killing the animals that balance the biome.
Taiga is the Russian term for Coniferous Forest.
