THE FORESTED TAIGA : A WEB
Berkeley Heights, NJ : Enslow,
IL 3-6, RL 4.5
taiga is a land of thick, dark evergreen forests. It is the largest
land biome and covers much of northern Europe, Asia and North America.
Life in the taiga can be harsh. The winters are long and cold and
the summers are very short. The soil is thin and the growing season
lasts only about three months. What kind of animals do you think
live in the taiga? Black bears, caribou and deer all live there.
You will find out more about the plant and animal life in the taiga in
Johansson's The Forested Taiga : a Web of Life.
