Boreal forests are one major forest type in Europe. They forests are dominated by coniferous tree species and temperature is the most significant factor affecting their location. The northern boundary of the zone corresponds with the July 13 oC isotherm, while the southern boundary coincides with the July 18 oC isotherm.
