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.
