Tropical Birding's Habitats of the World

Biome: CONIFEROUS FOREST
Forests made up of coniferous trees (which generally don’t seasonally lose their leaves, with the exception of larches and few others). The majority of habitats within this biome are from temperate areas with cold winters, though there are some tropical coniferous forests. Coniferous forests can be both fire prone and fire susceptible.
Taiga (Boreal Forest): Spruce and fir forests of the far north.
Example: Eurasian Spruce-Fir Taiga
Temperate Conifer Forest: Humid forests (usually) in temperate areas, including mountains.
Example: Nearctic Temperate Rainforest
Dry Conifer Forest: Forests and woodlands in dry temperate and tropical areas.
Example: Nearctic Montane Mixed-Conifer Forest
