The Taiga biome is one of the coldest biomes, with temperatures ranging in the negatives during Winter but are also notable for their hot and murky summers. Cities are often built in these biomes, for they offer good protection, and good resources but their frigid environmental factors never really allow cities to grow large. These biomes are always located near areas of Tundra, and generally are almost inhabitable living off of the land. Taiga Forests also are referred to as "Boreal Forests."
