The Coniferous Forest.
The coniferous forest, also known as the tundra, is a biome filled with trees and wildlife. It is home to many types of plants, trees, and animals, such as reindeer and cedar trees. This biome gains a fair amount of rainfall, gathering around 14 to 30 inches per year. Temperatures can dip down to 15 degrees F, or raise to around 57 degrees F. It can be found in the northwestern region of the U.S, and the southern part of Canada. Some factors of the coniferous forests are moist air, cool temperatures, Podzols soil, and lakes and rivers. The coniferous forest is a beautiful place.

How Can We Help this Biome?
Humans can help the coniferous forests by leaving the biome at it's natural state by not cutting down the trees or clearing the land. We also can help this biome by limiting construction around the areas of coniferous forests, so we do not disturb the organisms or life there.
How Do We Harm this Biome?
We harm this biome by polluting coniferous forests with construction on roads and buildings. We also harm this biome by cutting down the trees living in this biome to make things like paper. By doing this, we are limited oxygen sources and destroying the places in which some animals and plants live.
Did you know that coniferous forests are the largest land biome? They're sometimes referred to as "temperate rain forests".
