Example text

There are three basic types of forest: coniferous forests (taiga/boreal forests, montane forests, pine forests, and temperate rain forests), broadleaf forests (deciduous forests and temperate evergreen forests), and tropical forests (rain forests, seasonal forests, and dry forests). The boreal forest has already been discussed under tundra and taiga above, so we’ll focus on the remaining six. Montane forests are coniferous forests in the mountains. Spruce, fir, mountain hemlock, pine, incense cedar, and the giant sequoia compose the majority of montane forests.

Each tiller has a leafy blade and a tube-like base growing from short, stem-bearing root nodes. These nodes only grow upward when the plant begins flowering. These grasses are termed bunch or tussock grasses because they grow in bunches across the plains. The grasses that spread through lateral buds on underground stems are called sod or turf grasses. Drier grasslands favor tussock grasses while wet grasslands favors turf grasses. Ironically, both grazing and fire spur vigorous growth from grasses.

This means permafrost still exists under much of the taiga and just like the tundra. Permafrost has a chilling effect upon growth potential of the taiga. It reduces soil depth and impedes infiltration. By deterring drainage, is creates high soil moisture while slowing natural decomposition and reducing vital nutrients to the soil (like nitrogen). But the permafrost’s detrimental effects are ironically increased because of the trees of the taiga themselves. Since the trees are so 41 thick, the lack of light under the canopy only allows certain plants to flourish.
