  The Coniferous Forest
Coniferous forests are made up mainly of cone-bearing or coniferous trees, such as spruces, hemlocks, pines and firs.
Coniferous forests are found mainly in the northern hemisphere, although some are found in the southern hemisphere.

 Temperate coniferous forests - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Temperate coniferous forests are a terrestrial biome found in temperate regions of the world with warm summers and cool winters and adequate rainfall to sustain a forest.
In most temperate coniferous forests, evergreen conifers predominate, while some are a mix of conifers and broadleaf evergreen trees and/or broadleaf deciduous trees.
The temperate coniferous rain forests sustain the highest levels of biomass in any terrestrial ecosystem and are notable for trees of massive proportions, including Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron gigantea), Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis), Alerce (Fitzroya cupressoides) and Kauri (Agathis australis).

 Coniferous forest description - SNAs: Minnesota DNR
Coniferous Forest canopies may be dominated by coniferous, deciduous, or mixed coniferous-hardwood species.
After a disturbance in the coniferous forest, such as logging or burning, the canopy opening favors deciduous species, with their higher rates of photosynthesis.
The Coniferous Forest biome ranges from relatively flat lake plains and outwash plains in the west, to hillier moraines in the mid-section, with rugged, rocky outcrops abutting Lake Superior.

 Abstract: Rate of Photosynthesis Between Coniferous Trees and Deciduous Trees [please come up with a very detailed and ...
Coniferous trees, on the other hand, have fine leaves so snow slips through and does not build up, and therefore coniferous trees keep their needles for the entire year and do not experience leaf loss.
Therefore, we hypothesized that the photosynthetic rate of deciduous leaves (in temperate climates) will be greater than that of coniferous needles, of which have no need to compensate for periods without photosynthesis as they hold their leaves year-round.
To test this hypothesis equal masses of coniferous and deciduous leaves were collected and placed in separate gas chambers attached to a CO2 gas sensor which measures the concentrations of carbon-dioxide.

 The Effect of Temperature on Photosynthesis of Coniferous and Deciduous Plants   (Site not responding. Last check: )
We know that leaves are the site of photosynthesis in coniferous and deciduous plants, and that, during the Winter, the leaves of coniferous plants retain their needles, while the leaves of deciduous plants often die.
Our hypothesis was---if coniferous plants are better photo-synthesizers than deciduous plants under colder temperatures, then they will consume more C0 We placed three species of coniferous plants and three species of deciduous plants in respiration chambers, and ran four trials on each of the six samples.
The range for coniferous is -11.071 to -68.428 and the range for deciduous is -11.921 to -73.969.

 classification
To reduce the spectral confusion between classes each general landcover type (wetlands, coniferous forest, deciduous forest, agriculture-urban-other) is separated from the others before a final set of spectral classes for that group is determined.
This classification uses an image that has had both wetlands and coniferous vegetation removed before processing begins so that all that remains are deciduous cover types and everything else that is not coniferous or wetland.
What remains after wetlands, coniferous forest and deciduous forest have been identified and removed are agricultural lands, barren lands (strip mines, etc.) and urban areas.

 Metadata Summary   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Abstract: The Coniferous Wetland Forest Bird Inventory is a comprehensive inventory of birds and plants associated with coniferous wetland forests throughout Wisconsin.
Because Wisconsin has more coniferous wetland forest acreage than upland boreal forest, coniferous wetlands are important for boreal bird species whose ranges extend into Wisconsin.
The main goal of the inventory is to survey birds and vegetation in white cedar swamps, tamarack swamps, and fl spruce bogs and to predict bird occurrence based on the structure and composition of forest vegetation, forest patch size, and adjacent habitat types.

 A Strategy for Maintaining Healthy Populations of Western Coniferous Forest Birds
Finally, while all species found in western coniferous forests should be considered in the creation of the North American Bird Conservation Plan, I suggest particular attention be paid to declining species, uncommon species, and those negatively affected by logging and fire suppression.
These generalizations about the effects of logging on birds result from pooling data across coniferous forests and are based on a relatively small number of correlative studies measuring bird presence and abundance in various habitats (e.g., 19 stand-level studies about logging in the Rocky Mountains).
This strategy is a three-stage management process for maintaining western coniferous forest bird populations: (1) Maintain, mimic, and restore natural vegetation patterns and processes, (2) ensure that the specific habitat components required by sensitive species are created and/or maintained, and (3) monitor the habitats and individual sensitive species in future years.
