Biodiversity Reform

North Coast - climate

The general trend in this bioregion from east to west is from a sub-tropical climate on the coast with hot summers, through sub-humid climate on the slopes to a temperate climate in the uplands in the western part of the bioregion, characterised by warm summers and no dry season. A montane climate occurs in a small area in the southwest of the bioregion at higher elevations.
