Temperate regions Temperate regions Presentation Transcript

  • Temperate Regions Mediterranean or Warm Temperate West Marginal www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate Location-30 to 40 degrees along the western margins of the continents Countries-Spain, Portugal, S France, Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, Albania,W Turkey, Islands of Siccily & Cyprus, Morracco, Algeria, Tunisia, Cape Province, Pacific Sea Board of North and South America, South Western and Southern Coast of Australia, Victoria and North Island of New Zealand Climate-Hot dry summers and cool wet winters. Rainfall moderate about 50 cms. Areas near sea have heavy rainfall www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate West Marginal Natural Vegetation-Broad leaved evergreen forest where rainfall is considerable. Vegetation adapted to dry summer climate. Little grass vegetation due to summer drought. Animal Life-Sheeps, Goats, Pigs, Asses and Monkeys. Kangaroo, Hare in Australia. Birds of beautiful colors. Human Occupation-Agriculture and Fruit Farming. Fishing, Mining and Sericulture. Fruit canning the main industry. www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate West Marginal Human Occupation (Continued)-Agriculture & fruit farming. Fishing, mining and sericulture. Fruit canning the main industry. Manufacturing industries like textile, iron & steel & shipbuilding developed in France & Italy. Economic Development-Densely populated due to highly congenial climate. Drought in summer and lack of mineral resources main problem. Nearness to European countries a great locational advantage helping in industrial development . Irrigation facilities developed on the mountain streams facilitate agriculture in summerwww.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate East Marginal or China Type Location-30 to 40 along the eastern margins of the continents Countries-North and central china, West Korea, South Japan, Gulf States of USA, South Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Eastern Seaboard of New South Wales, South Queensland and Natal Climate-Hot wet summers and very cool dry winters. Rainfall fairly heavy. Natural Vegetation-Warm temperate forests with scrublands www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate – China Type Animal Life-Domestic animals like cattle, Goats and Pigs, Wild animals like deer, wild bear, wolves and foxes Agriculture & Sericulture in northern hemisphere; agriculture and animal rearing in southern hemisphere Economic Development-Asian part densly populated, but people generally poor. Industrial development only in Japan. Bright future as countries in southern hemisphere are rich in resources www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Warm Temperate Desert Region- Turan Type of Interior Lowlands Location-30-40 degrees away from the sea. Turan, Trans-caspian and caspian districts in Russia, West Central States of USA, N Argentina, Interior parts of New South Wales, Victoria and S Australia Climate-Very hot summers and extremely cold winters. Scanty rainfall occuring mainly in spring www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Turan Type Natural Vegetation-Grass Animal Life-Cattle, Sheep, Horses and Goats Human Occupation-Cattle and animal rearing, agriculture where irrigation facilities are available Economic Development-Sparsely populated due to scarcity of water. Wool, meat and skins are main items of trade. Industrial progress taking place due to location near developed areas. www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Interior High Lands or Iranian Type (b) Iran, Interior of asia minor, Afganisthan, Western part of Pakistan, Interior lands of southern states of USA, Mexico, Interior land of South Africa Climate-Very hot summers and extremely cold winters. Scanty rainfall occurring mainly in winters. Natural Vegetation-Grass Animal Life-Cattle, Sheep, Horses and Camels www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Iranian Type Human Occupation-Cattle and animal rearing on the richer grass lands, agriculture in the oasis with the help of irrigation. Manufacturing in various parts. Mining in the USA and S.Africa Economic Development- Vast mineral resources awaiting exploitation. Their exploitation will also help industrial progress. www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Cool Temperate Oceanic Region-West European Type Location- 42 to 60 degrees along the western margins of the continent. Places/Countries-British Isles, France, West Germany, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Southern parts of Sweden and Norway; British Columbia; NW costal part of USA; South Chile, Tasmania, South Island of New Zealand www.StudsPlanet.com
  • West European Type Climate-Warm summers and cool winters. Rainfall occurs throughout the year. Areas under the influence of westerlies experience mild cyclones and anti- cyclones Vegetation-Deciduous forests in warm lowlands, coniferous forests in cooler and damper up-lands, temperate grass in the eastern parts www.StudsPlanet.com
  • West European Type Animal – Cattle, Sheep, pigs, horses and goats are the chief domestic animals. Fur bearing animals in the in the coniferous forests Human Occupation-Industries based on forest products. Lumbering in British Columbia, S Chile, S New Zealand and Scandinavia;Cattle & sheep rearing, agriculture, fishing, mining and manufacturing www.StudsPlanet.com
  • West European Type Economic Development-Densely populated due to mild and healthy climate & great opportunities for industrial and commercial development. Highly civilized and economically advanced , usually termed as the manufacturing region of the world. Foodstuff and raw materials mainly imported and manufactures form the main exports. www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Cool Temperate – East Marginal or St. Lawrence Type Location-42 to 60 degrees along the eastern margins of the continents Countries-Amur Valley, Armenia, Korea, N. Japan, St. Lawrence Basin, Newfoundland in USA and SE Argentina Climate-Short mild summers and long severely cold winters. Moderate rainfall in summers and heavy snowfall in winters. Frequent weather changes www.StudsPlanet.com
  • St. Lawrence Type (contd..) Vegetation-Both coniferous and deciduous forests. Pine, Spruce, Fir and Oak are the principal trees. Animals-Fur-bearing animals like elk, mink, wolves and dairy animals. Human Occupation-Lumbering, Trapping animals, Dairy Farming, Fishing, Agriculture in cleared areas and manufacturing based on forest products www.StudsPlanet.com
  • St. Lawrence Type Economic Development-Sparsely populated due to extremely cold winters. Existence of vast forests, fishery and mineral resources and cheap hydro-electricity have helped in the economic development in spite of cold climate; population is dense in areas where forests have been cleared. www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Cold Temperate Grasslands or Prairie Type Location-42 to 60 degrees in the interior of the continents. Countries-Central Parts of Russia and Siberia, Central plains of USA and Canada, Northern half of Argentina, Uruguay and S Paraguay, considerable part of central Asia. Murray Darling Basin, Western part of new south whales and the plateau of South Africa www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Prairie Type Climate-Typically continental-short, warm or hot summers, long severely cold winters. Moderate to scanty rainfall in summers. Long days in summers & long nights in winters. Vegetation-Treeless grass plains. Short temperate grasses Animal – Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Horses & Asses. Ostrich in S.Africa www.StudsPlanet.com
  • Prairie Type Occupation- Rearing of Sheep and Goats in isolated areas. Commercial farming, cattle and sheep rearing, and manufacturing based on agriculture in some areas. Economic Dev-Due to the impact of western civilization, these areas have become highly developed granaries of the world. People though dependent on agriculture enjoy high income and standard of living. www.StudsPlanet.com
