In addition to the dark coniferous forests in the southern Europe taiga strip the oak, linden, and maple are seen, while alders could make an occasional appearance. Taiga is located in the northern part of the temperate zone, where the average temperature in July is around 50o to 55° Fahrenheit, with the summer season being very short, while winters are quite cold with steady snow cover.
