The taiga (IPA pronunciation: /'taɪgə/ or /taɪ 'ga/, from Mongolian) is a large area of coniferous forests. It covers most of inland Alaska, Canada, Sweden, Finland, inland Norway, northern Kazakhstan and Russia (especially Siberia), as well as parts of the extreme northern continental United States.
The climate is cold and has warm summers. It is just below the tundra
