Sakhalin Island taiga

WWF Abstract

Sakhalin Island separates the Sea of Okhotsk from the Sea of Japan in the Far East of Russia. Like other taiga forests, it is a moist subarctic coniferous forest dominated by spruce and fir trees that begin growing where the tundra ends. Kurile larch thrives in swampy soil in the north, while Yeddo spruce and Sakhalin fir cover the mountain slopes of the Western Range.
