and consider everything above the taiga belt a tundra area.
For alaska, the west coast is also tundra

So, the tundra biome would be the answer?

yea, you can see that when you look at your map. the center-east part of alaska is taiga/boreal and the rest is colored cyan (which is tundra in the legend)

Next I have to explain the climate in the northern part of taiga, and the climate in the southern part of taiga.

That would probably be a mix between tundra and taiga in the north and a mix of taiga and temperate grassland/forest in the south. In the north it would be colder less trees. These trees are mostly gymnosperms (trees with needles). In the south of a taiga region it would most likely be a little warmer. Also you would find more angiosperms (trees with leaves).
