FORESTS

Hardy conifers like pines (Pinus), spruces (Picea), and larches dominate the woods in chilly high-latitude subpolar zones (Larix). These forests, also known as taiga or boreal forests, are found in the Northern Hemisphere and have lengthy winters with an annual rainfall range of 250–500 mm (10–20 inches). In many temperate regions of the world, mountains are covered in coniferous forests as well.

Mixed forests with both conifers and broad-leaved deciduous trees are more common in high-latitude areas with a more temperate environment. Middle-latitude conditions, with an average annual temperature above 10 °C (50 °F) for at least six months and more than 400 mm of precipitation, are where broad-leaved deciduous woods grow (16 inches). Deciduous woods can be dominated by oaks (Quercus), elms (Ulmus), birches (Betula), maples (Acer), beeches (Fagus), and aspens thanks to a growing season of 100 to 200 days (Populus).
