    Unit 3: THE EARTH’S CLIMATES. Social Sciences 4 2-WEATHER AND CLIMATE Weather is the atmospheric conditions in a certain place at a specific moment. Climate is the average atmospheric conditions in a certain place over a long period of example, if we say it is hot or raining on a particular place always has hot summers or rainy. Climate Long-term (50 year) weather averages. Cold front The "leading edge" of a relatively cold air mass. Continental climate A climate with a high temperature range away from the influence of the sea. Winters will be colder and summers warmer compared to a coastal location for the same latitude.

    Some of the major climatic factors play important role in vegetation distribution as follows. In any eco-system, a living organism/vegetation is is influenced by a number of factors and forces. A type of vegetation found in rainforests or a Tropical Wet Climate. Coniferous Trees. Trees (vegetation) with evergreen needle leaves and with cones to protect their seeds; found in the Humid Continental Climate. Deciduous Trees. Trees (vegetation) that shed their leaves in the fall; found in the Humid Continental Climate.

    Ecosystems and Climate. Climate, which is average weather conditions over a period of time, is the primary environmental influence on ecosystems. Plants, animals, insects and microbes are adapted to small changes in climate. However, climatic conditions vary widely over the earth. Climate can be defined as a long-term average weather pattern evident in a particular region of the world. Weather is a term usually used to define conditions on a short-term or even daily basis. The two main elements in climate conditions are temperature and precipitation.

Vegetation, soil and climate are the most important components of ecological systems. This long-awaited fourth edition of the well-established textbook by Heinrich Walter summarizes our knowledge of the earth's ecology and constitutes the basis for a deeper understanding of the larger interrelations on a.

Vegetation covers a considerable portion of the earth and has an effect on weather and climate. Vegetation influences both albedo of the earth and the amount of water vapor and carbon dioxide in the air.

Why do I care. Humans are altering the vegetation on earth, and it is impacting weather and climate. climate effects vegetation because if it is climate is cold then the vegetation would be snow if the climate is warm and there was precipitation no matter what vegetation then the vegetation would.

The plant community in an area is the most sensitive indicator of climate. Areas with moderate to high temperatures and abundant rainfall throughout the year are heavily forested (unless humans have cleared the land for agriculture!). Areas with somewhat less rainfall are mainly grasslands, which are called prairies in North America.

Humans have converted grasslands into rich. Areas with very predictable and stable climates tend to support fewer different plant life forms than regions with more erratic climates.

In general, there is a close correspondence between climate and vegetation (compare Figures and with Figure ); indeed, climatologists have sometimes used vegetation as the best indicator of climate. Get this from a library.

Vegetation of the earth in relation to climate and the eco-physiological conditions. [Heinrich Walter; Joy Wieser] -- Descriptions of kinds of zonal vegetation into which eco-physiological data must fit.

Includes chapters on the arctic tundra, boreal coniferous forest, and alpine vegetation zones. The growth of natural vegetation depends upon climatic conditions existing in the place. For example, evergreen forests grow in the regions which experience heavy rainfall.

Thorny bushes and scrub are found in areas of scanty rainfall. Similarly, at higher altitudes, where the climate is extremely cold, lichens and mosses grow. Geography is, therefore, exclusively human geography, or as Barrow stated, geography is ‘human ecology’.

Geography is a natural science in the same way as plant ecology is a biological science. Sauer, in his book Agricultural Origins and Dispersals (), focused upon the patterns of human culture in relation to the natural environment.

Chapter 2. Weather and Climate The Structure of the Atmosphere Surrounding the Earth is a gaseous envelope or atmosphere, held in place by the planet’s gravitational attraction. The Earth’s atmosphere is a complex dynamical, physical, and chemical system.
