Taiga is the world's largest land biome (areas with similar climatic conditions), and makes up 29% of the world's forest cover; the largest areas are located in Russia and Canada. The taiga is the terrestrial biome with the lowest annual average temperatures after the tundra and permanent ice caps.
A tundra is a biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons.
