This volume in the Greenwood Guides to Biomes of the World series covers the vast forest that cover much of North America and similar regions. The volume covers the three major types of temperate forest biomes: boreal forests (e.g. the evergreen forests of the Pacific Northwest), Temperate Broadleaf Deciduous Forest, and Mediterranean Woodland and Scrub, examining all aspects that define these biomes:

  • Vegetation
  • Geographical Distribution
  • Soil
  • Challenges posed by the environment
  • Adaptation of the plants and animals to the environment
  • Conservation efforts

Maps, photos, diagrams, drawings, and tables accompany the text, as do sidebars that highlight habitats, species, and ecological relationships. The volume includes a bibliography of accessible resources for further research.
