BIO PHOTO CONTEST 2017

BIO PHOTO CONTEST 2017

The wonderful view of the natural ecosystems of the entire planet condensed in the best pictures of professional photographers and advanced photo amateurs.

The Boreal Forests of the planet are located in the northern hemisphere and form a wide band encircling the northern areas of the American, Europe and Asia continents. This is therefore a “cold forest”, formed mostly, but not exclusively, by conifers and as such can withstand the rigors of the sub-arctic continental climate. In its northern border the Boreal Forest comes until the beginning of the Tundra, in which disperses. While its southern border is the presence of mainland Steppe (Asia) or temperate forest (North America and Europe).

Apparently homogeneous habitats it actually includes different situations, to be a giant mosaic with vast meadows with tall grass and marshy areas, river and lake inserted in the vast forest environment. Sometimes monotonous as the vast surfaces (Siberian taiga), sometimes with interesting flora and fauna situations.

The Boreal Forest extends from the northern coasts of Asia Pacific to the northern coasts of the Atlantic Ocean, where it arrived to cover much of the Scandinavian Peninsula. In the Americas, it is covering much of the Canadian and Alaskan territory, reaching US territory in the Great Lakes and along the ridge of the Rocky Mountains. In Central Asia the taiga beyond the northern borders of Mongolia. The southernmost boreal forest covers the coasts of Russian Primorjie, home of the last Siberian tigers and the northern islands of Japan.
