Alexandra Rishikof - Balsam Fir

Balsam fir, Albies balsamea, is in the plantae kingdom and the pinaceae family of coniferous trees. The genus albies is an indicator of their height because in Latin it means "to rise". The group of Balsam fir I observed were all tall with thin branches and needles. The smaller surface area of the needles of coniferous trees means that they have fewer stomata and can therefore retain more water. A unique adaptation of the Balsam fir is that they grow tall and straight to conserve energy.
