"Our planet's green halo is the circumpolar taiga or boreal forest. This forest is remarkably uniform in its climate, vegetation types and animal forms. All life forms here have evolved adaptations to the long, cold and snowy winters, the short, hot and dry summers, and the swiftly-changing seasons. The same genera and families of birds and mammals, although usually with vicarious species, occur in this forest type in Eurasia and North America. Humans have invaded and exploited these northern coniferous woodlands differently in Canada and Russia. The similarities and differences have been studied by biologists, human ecologists, anthropologists and other scientists at two research and teaching field stations in the taiga."

"Introductions to their work are presented here in both English and Russian in parallel texts. Such a format is ideal for students, not only of the natural sciences, but of both languages. This multi-level and inter-science approach seems to have never before been accomplished."
