The boreal forest

Widely spread across the northern regions of North America, Europe, and Asia, the boreal forest (or taiga) is the world's largest land biome.

Due to nutrient-poor soils and the long northern winter, which allows only a brief growing season, the tree layer is made up of frugal species, mainly conifers such as spruce, pine, and fir, accompanied by few hardy deciduous trees like birch and willow. This forest is home to a diverse fauna, including iconic mammals like moose, wolf, bear, lynx, as well as numerous resident and migratory birds.

The boreal forest plays a crucial role in regulating the global climate by absorbing and storing significant amounts of carbon dioxide. Forest and mining industries pose serious threats to this fragile environment, impacting both its biodiversity and its carbon sequestration capabilities. Sustainable management practices are essential to preserve the ecological integrity of the boreal forest and its vital contributions to the Earth.
