Three taiga herbivores are an American elk, a yellow bellied sapsucker, and an American dipper.

Three Omnivores are bears, cougars, and the spruce grouse.

 Three carnivores are wolves, lynx, and dogs.

Abiotic factors: Temps range -65 degrees in Winter to

70 degrees in the Summer. Annual precipitation=20-

50 inches. Biotic factors: Vegetation includes coniferous trees, ferns, mosses, and mushrooms.

Animals include snowshoe hare, lynx, shrew, weasel, black bear, woodchuck, and chickadee.

Some animals survive because they have a thick coat of fur. Another way animals survive is the food chain the more they eat the bigger they can grow up to.

Some Taiga food chains are a wolf eats a moose the moose eats twigs of trees, the trees are the producer, the primary consumer is the moose the secondary consumer is the wolf. Another food chain is a lynx eats an owl, and the owl eats a mouse. Mice eat fruits and seeds. The fruits and seeds are the producer, the mouse is the primary consumer, the secondary consumer is the owl, and the third primary consumer is the lynx.

One decomposer in taiga is common soil bacteria nematodes. Nematodes are tiny worms that break down leaves and bacteria. They make soil healthier for plants.
