Term: Taiga climate
Definition: In general, a climate that produces taiga vegetation; that is, one that is too cold for prolific tree growth but milder than the tundra climate and moist enough to promote appreciable vegetation. (Also called subarctic climate.) This climate type appears as a subdivision of Köppen's 1936 snow forest climate and Thornthwaite's 1931 microthermal climate.
