Coniferous Forest Biome

Coniferous Forest

Coniferous forest ecosystems are found in regions of the Earth that experience somewhat long and cold winters, with summer being much shorter. Thus, it is no surprise that these biomes are more common the closer one travels towards the Earth’s poles. Additionally, this biome is found high atop mountains where temperatures tend to be lower and winter tends to last longer.

Common lifeforms living in this biome are evergreen trees, small mammals such as rodents, large mammals such as moose and deer, and a variety of insects, spiders, and plant life.
