1. Hello my carlos am from class 5-888


These are my five fact
  1. Temperate coniferous forest is a terrestrial biome found in temperate regions of the world with warm summers and cool winters and adequate rainfall to sustain a forest.
  2. Some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world are in coniferous forests in the worlod
  3. from freshwater and marine ecoregions. In this context, terrestrial is used to mean "of land" (soil and rock), rather than the more general sense "of Earth" (which includes land and oceans).
    WWF (World Wildlife Fund) ecologists currently divide the land surface of the Earth into 8 major ecozones containing 867 smaller terrestrial ecoregions (see list). The WWF effort is a synthesis of many previous efforts to define and classify ecoregions. Many consider this classification to be quite decisive, and some propose these as stable borders for bioregional democracy initiatives.[8]
    The eight terrestrial ecozones follow the major floral and faunal boundaries, identified by botanists and zoologists, that separate the world's major plant and animal communities. Ecozone boundaries generally follow continental boundaries, or major barriers to plant and animal distribution, like the Himalayas and the Sahara. The boundaries of ecoregions are often not as decisive or well recognized, and are subject to greater disagreement.

competition within and between species. Ecosystems are dynamically interacting systems of organisms, the communities they make up, and the non-living components of their environment. Ecosystem processes, such as primary production, pedogenesis, nutrient cycling, and niche construction, regulate the flux of energy and matter through an environment. These processes are sustained by organisms with specific life history traits. Biodiversity means the varieties of species, genes, and ecosystems, enhances certain ecosystem services.
Ecology is not synonymous with environmentalism, natural history, or environmental science. It overlaps with the closely related sciences of evolutionary biology, genetics, and ethology. An important focus for ecologists is to improve the understanding of how biodiversity affects ecological function. Ecologists seek to explain:

made up of living organisms and nonliving components such as air, water and mineral soil.[2] Ecosystems may be studied either as contingent collections of plants and animals, or as structured systems and communities that are governed by general rules.[3] The biotic and abiotic components interact through nutrient cycles and energy flows.[4] Ecosystems include a network of interactions among organisms, and between organisms and their environment.[5] Ecosystems can be of any size but one ecosystem has a specific, limited space.[6] Some scientists view the entire planet as one ecosystem.[7]

Coniferous forest, vegetation composed primarily of cone-bearing needle-leaved or scale-leaved evergreen trees, found in areas that have long winters and moderate to high annual precipitation. The northern Eurasian coniferous forest is called the taiga, or the boreal forest.

Coniferous Forest Ecosystem facts:
1.What is an ecosystem?A biological Community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.

2. What is an community? an interacting group of various species in a common location.

3.What is population? A group in a certain place.

4.What is a niche? is the smallest unit of a habitat that is occupied by a plant or animal.

5. What is a biome? It's a large region of earth that has a certain climate and certain types of living things.

6. What is a habitat? is a place that an animal lives.

Information on the video:There are tall pine trees are at the coniferous Forest as well as Bohall Lake.

here's a quick look at some of the critters you'll find in taiga region! you might know them

as rein deer,but either way,these creatures are common dwellers of the taiga.caribou UL pictured can run at speeds reaching86 kilometers
per hour and travel as 5,000 km every year.

The coniferous forest has 300 to 900 millimeters of rain each year.The coniferous forest is probely the worlds largest land biome.Coniferouse means cone bearing or coming for the cones.the coniferouse forest was named after the confer tree that produces seeds and cones.The coniferouse forest have cold long winters with snow and warm hot humid summes
