I do not understand the inclusion of taiga next year. Boreal forests were considered part of forests for the two previous years, so I don't understand why they're going back to it instead of skipping forward to tundra.
My regional test did a great job of covering grasslands, however there was next to nothing on grasslands on the state test. I'd expect nationals to cover both grasslands and deserts pretty evenly.
