    “Taiga” also known as the boreal forest, hence “The Boreal forest “or the “taiga” is the world's largest land-based biome and makes up 29% of the world's forest cover, the largest areas are located in Russia and Canada. The taiga is found throughout the high northern latitudes, between the tundra, and the temperate forest, from about 50°N to 70°N, but with considerable regional variation. Spreading over continents and covering many countries, the Boreal plays a significant role in the planet's biodiversity and even its climate. In North America it covers most of inland Canada and Alaska as well as parts of the extreme northern continental United States (northern Minnesota through the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to Upstate New York and northern New England) and is known as the Northwood’s, In Eurasia, it covers most of Sweden, Finland, much of Norway, some lowland/coastal areas of Iceland, much of Russia from Karelia in the west to the Pacific Ocean (including much of Siberia), and areas of northern Kazakhstan, northern Mongolia, and northern Japan (on the island of Hokkaido).
