Which vegetation is known as Taiga vegetation?

Coniferous vegetation is also known as Taiga vegetation.

Taiga forest

The taiga is a forest of the cold, subarctic region. The subarctic is an area of the Northern Hemisphere that lies just south of the Arctic Circle. The taiga lies between the tundra to the north and temperate forests to the south. Taigas are thick forests. Coniferous trees, such as spruce, pine, and fir, are common. Coniferous trees have needle s instead of broad leaves, and their seed s grow inside protective, woody cones.

  • The soil of the taiga has few nutrients.
  • Instead of shrub s and flowers, mosses, lichens, and mushrooms cover the floor of a taiga.
  • Many birds of prey, such as owls and eagles, hunt these animals from the taiga trees.
  • Moose, the largest type of deer in the world, can live in the cold taiga.
