Taiga is the world's ''largest'' land biome, and makes up 29% of the world's forest cover;<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.wilds.mb.ca/taiga/tbsfaq.html |title=Taiga biological station: FAQ |publisher=Wilds.mb.ca |date= |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref> the largest areas are located in Russia and Canada. The taiga is the terrestrial biome with the lowest annual average temperatures after the [[tundra]] and permanent ice caps. Extreme winter minimums in the northern taiga are typically lower than those of the tundra. The lowest reliably recorded temperatures in the [[Northern Hemisphere]] were recorded in the taiga of northeastern Russia. The taiga or boreal forest has a [[subarctic climate]] with very large temperature range between seasons, but the long and cold winter is the dominant feature. This climate is classified as ''Dfc'', ''Dwc'', ''Dsc'', ''Dfd'' and ''Dwd'' in the [[Köppen climate classification]] scheme,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.radford.edu/~swoodwar/CLASSES/GEOG235/biomes/taiga/taiga.html |title=radford:Taiga climate |publisher=Radford.edu |date= |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref> meaning that the short summer (24-hr average 10 °C or more) lasts 1–3 months and always less than 4 months. There are also some much smaller areas grading towards the oceanic ''Cfc'' climate with milder winters, whilst the extreme south and (in Eurasia) west of the taiga reaches into [[humid continental climate]]s (''Dfb'', ''Dwb'') with longer summers. The mean annual temperature generally varies from -5 °C to 5 °C,<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.marietta.edu/~biol/biomes/boreal.htm |title=Marietta the Taiga and Boreal forest |publisher=Marietta.edu |date= |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref> but there are taiga areas in eastern Siberia and interior Alaska-[[Yukon]] where the mean annual reaches down to -10 °C.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.worldclimate.com/cgi-bin/data.pl?ref=N62E129+1102+24959W |title=Yakutsk climate |publisher=Worldclimate.com |date=2007-02-04 |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref><ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.worldwildlife.org/wildworld/profiles/terrestrial/na/na0607_full.html |title=WWF: Interior Alaska-Yukon lowland taiga |publisher=Worldwildlife.org |date= |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref> According to some sources, the boreal forest grades into a temperate mixed forest when mean annual temperature reaches about 3 °C.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.worldwildlife.org/wildworld/profiles/terrestrial/na/na0406_full.html |title=WWF: The eastern forest - boreal transition |publisher=Worldwildlife.org |date= |accessdate=2011-02-21}}</ref> [[Discontinuous permafrost]] is found in areas with mean annual temperature below 0 °C, whilst in the ''Dfd'' and ''Dwd'' climate zones [[continuous permafrost]] occurs and restricts growth to very shallow-rooted trees like [[Siberian larch]]. The winters, with average temperatures below freezing, last five to seven months. Temperatures vary from −54 °C to 30 °C (-65 °F to 86 °F) throughout the whole year. The summers, while short, are generally warm and humid. In much of the taiga, -20 °C would be a typical winter day temperature and 18 °C an average summer day.
