East Siberian taiga

WWF Abstract

The taiga forests of eastern Siberia are given to extremes. The summers are very hot, reaching a maximum of over 100° F (40° C). But winter is bitterly cold, dipping down to nearly -80° F (or -62° C). With permafrost a constant feature, the animals that live here are tough creatures indeed.
