Temperate climate

Regions with a temperate climate are usually characterized by having roughly equally long winters and summers. Temperature extremes are uncommon in temperate climates but may still occur in regions also affected by continental climate.

Vegetation in temperate climates is varied, as some species adapted to colder, subarctic climates as well as those adapted to warmer, subtropical climates may survive here at the outer limit of their temperature tolerances. Leaf bearing trees dominate this climate close to the coastal regions and ferns dominate the northern region as well as some inland parts.
