  • Humid and temperate forests dominate the south and east
mid latitude climates maps on pg 652 653
Mid Latitude ClimatesMaps on Pg 652 & 653

Lower southeast quarter of East Asia has humid subtropical climate

Upper northeast quarter has humid continental climate

Forest regions of mid latitude region is mixed coniferous and deciduous

Bamboo, a tree like grass, is very important in the warmer area

desert and steppe climates
Desert and Steppe Climates

Desert and Steppe climates range across Mongolia and Northern China

Any rain from the Pacific is blocked by the rain shadow effect caused by the surrounding mountains

The Gobi Desert and Taklimakan desert are often cold and windy

Grasses and sparse trees make up the vegetation

highland climates
Highland Climates

Highland areas have cold climates due to high elevation

Highland climate in East Asia is found on the Plateau of Tibet

Home to meadows of dotted trees, flowers and grasses in the lower mountain areas

Colorful lichens and mosses grow above the timberline
