bioclimatology

Sistema de Clasificación Bioclimática Mundial

"Desde hace más de una década estoy tratando de poner a punto una clasificación bioclimática que tenga jurisdicción en toda la Tierra.

"In the new 'Worldwide Bioclimatic Classification System' proposed, five macrobioclimates, twenty-seven bioclimates and five bioclimatic variants are recognized. The five macrobioclimates are: Tropical, Mediterranean, Temperate, Boreal and Polar. Each of them, and every one of their subordinate units or bioclimates, is represented by a characteristic group of plant formations, biocenosis and plant communities. Within almost every bioclimate, a number of variations in the seasonal rainfall patterns of rain allows us to recognize the bioclimatic variants.
