Mediterranean Climate Zone
Justice Simmons and Dillon Bacon
The Mediterranean biome is distributed into five biome sub-types, which include Mediterranean, Californian, Chilean, Caspensic, and Australian. The Mediterranean is the largest of these for several reasons. The vegetation in the Australian and South African sub-types is limited by the resources in the south, and the Chilean and Californian vegetation is also limited on the East due to the Andreas and Sierra Nevada inland penetration of the Mediterranean climate along margins of the Mediterranean Sea.
