Introduction… : 

Introduction… A Mediterranean climate resembles the climate of the lands in the Mediterranean Basin. The climate is characterized by warm to hot, dry summers and cool, wet winters. Mediterranean climate zones are associated with the five large subtropical high pressure cells of the oceans:The Azores High, South Atlantic High, North Pacific High, South Pacific High, and Indian Ocean High.

Mediterranean Climate Regions : 

Mediterranean Climate Regions

City of Perth.. : 

City of Perth.. For example, the city of Perth, Australia, in the southern hemisphere winter months of June-August, receives about 450 mm (17.7 inches) of rainfall and daily experiences an average daily minimum temperature of 8°C (46°F); during the summer months of December to February, by contrast, the city receives but 32 mm (1.3 inches) of rain.

Slide 8: 

Mediterranean climate is a fantastic climate which makes visiting a pleasure all year round. Temperatures do fall off quite rapidly in Autumn and Winter, but the weather is generally very clear and fine if not warm.

Concepts... : 

Concepts... Why are summers hot and dry? Why are winters warm and wet? Why is the Dry Summer Subtropical climate, also known as the "Mediterranean" climate ? Which places have this sort of climate?

Why are summers hot and dry? : 

Why are summers hot and dry? The climate is dominated by subtropical anticyclones, and trade winds prevail. Daily weather is greatly influenced by sea breezes and land breezes. In winter, mid-latitude depressions bring rain. Local winds, such as the Mistral of southern France and the Santa Ana of California are of great significance.

Why are winters warm and wet? : 

Why are winters warm and wet? In winter, mid-latitude depressions bring rain. Local winds, such as the Mistral of southern France and the Santa Ana of California are of great significance.

Why is the Dry Summer Subtropical climate, also known as the "Mediterranean" climate ? : 

Why is the Dry Summer Subtropical climate, also known as the "Mediterranean" climate ? The land that borders the Mediterranean Sea is a type locality for this climate. The wet winter/dry summer seasonality of precipitation is the defining characteristic of this climate. Summer drought places a great deal of stress on the local vegetation, but plant structures have evolved to adapt to it.

Which places have this sort of climate? : 

Which places have this sort of climate? Barcelona, Spain. Rome, Italy. Athens, Greece. Victoria, Canada. Cape Town, South Africa. Athens, Greece. Alexandria, Egypt

summary : 

summary Places with mediterrean climate have hot, and dry summers and warm winters.

Introduction... : 

Introduction... Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub is a temperate biome, characterized by dry summers and mild and rainy winters. Summers are typically hot in low-lying inland locations but can be cool near some seas, as near San Francisco, which have cool sea waters. Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub eco-regions occur in the world's five Mediterranean climate zones, on the west coast of continents in the mid-latitudes: the Mediterranean Basin, California, Central Chile,Southwes Australia, and the Western Cape in South Africa.

Natural vegetation : 

Natural vegetation This blog has been up for Mediterranean area just under 3 months and already 50000 unique visitors have passed . Natural vegetation under abiotic stress in Mediterranean environments opens up possibilities for further investigations. The natural vegetation of Mediterranean lands must be adapted to survive long, hot summer droughts and prolonged wet periods in winter.

How is vegetation changed by humans? : 

How is vegetation changed by humans? People have adapted by grazing herds over large areas, even tying them to the roadsides to make the most of the roadside vegetation. Herding them from area to area to maintains adequate feeding grounds for their herds. People profit by growing olives, oranges, culinary herbs and harvesting cork.

Slide 21: 

The shrub lands are more extensive today than before aboriginal burning and Spanish livestock grazing. Today the Spanish Mediterranean area supports extensive olive groves, cork forests, cattle farming and the production of sherry. These are just the benefits ,but there are many causes, deforestation,etc.

Why do Mediterranean plants grow mainly in winter? : 

Why do Mediterranean plants grow mainly in winter? In winters it has warm and wet climate thus plants grow mainly in winter due to rain.

Why do Mediterranean plants grow slowly mainly in summer? : 

Why do Mediterranean plants grow slowly mainly in summer? In summer it Has hot and dry climate thus plants do not support much to that climate and they grow very slow in summer.

Summery: : 

Summery: Mediterranean vegetation has had to adapt to hot, dry summers and warm, wet winters. It has been activities such as the feeling and burning of forests and the keeping of grazing animals.

Facts: : 

Facts: The almost landlocked Mediterranean sea alone covers an area of over 2,500,000 sq Km (970,000Sq miles) and is bordered by around 14 countries which can be defined as 'Mediterranean'.  This subtropical Mediterranean biome, composed of shrub lands and woodlands is called the maquis in Europe.
