The three major forest biomes are coniferous forests, deciduous forests, and tropical rain forests.Evergreen is coniferous forests stretch across Canada, Alaska, Northern Asia, and Northern Europe.
Tropical rainforests grow in South America, the Congo, Indonesia and some nearby countries, Hawaii, and eastern Australia.
Tropical rainforests are aptly named, as it rains here on about half the days.
They are an ecosystem which includes many plants and animals.
Forests are very important and grow in many places around the world.
They are composed of conifers which produce seeds in cones.
The weather during the winter is cold, but when snow melts in the spring, some parts of the forest become swamps.
Animals that we may see or hear in this biome include bears, deer, raccoons, otters, beavers, foxes, frogs, squirrels, snakes, salamanders, and birds such as woodpeckers, robins, owls, blue jays and the small birds usually called tits.
Some deciduous forests grow in tropical places that do not have a winter but do have a wet season and a dry season.
Summers are warm and winters are cold, but not as cold as the northern coniferous forests.
In the winter, snow covers the ground and the deciduous trees and plants lose their leaves.
