Map of Bioclimatic Subzones & Boreal Forests


Map: Bioclimatic subzones, boreal forests and forest tundra.

  • Bioclimatology: branch of climatology that deals with the effects of the physical environment on living organisms over an extended period of time.
  • Boreal forest or Taiga: a biome characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces, and larches.
  • Forest tundra: Areas of transition from forested to non-forested landscapes. At high latitudes, north of the main zone of boreal forestland, growing conditions are not adequate to maintain a continuously closed forest cover, so tree cover is both sparse and discontinuous.
