     Taiga is found at the northern end of the temperate zone, where winters are long and cold and summers are short. Taiga trees are largely conifers. Moose, elk, black bears, and lynxes are common mammals. Most smaller animals either hibernate or migrate south to avoid the long winter.



Modern cities are centers of employment, education, and culture. But they are also centers of poverty, delinquency, crime, prostitution, alcoholism and drug abuse. As a rule, cities offer less space, less daylight, less fresh air, less greenery, and more noise.
