British Type of Climate

Vegetation that grows in a natural region without any human interference is known as natural vegetation. A natural region is a basic geographic unit that is characterized by its common natural features of geography, geology, and climate. Climate is a basic factor upon which natural regions are divided. It influences flora, fauna, and vegetation in the region. Climate is classified on factors such as temperature, winds, pressure, humidity, rainfall, landforms, types of soil, natural vegetation, and wildlife. Based on these factors, the world is divided into various natural regions such as the equatorial region, tropical grasslands, tropical deserts, tropical monsoon type of climate, the Mediterranean region, China type of climate, British type climate, temperate grasslands, temperate deserts, and taiga and tundra regions.


British Type of Climate


Natural Vegetation

  • Deciduous forests are mainly found in regions experiencing the British type of climate. The trees in the region have thick trunks and yield valuable timber.
  • They shed their leaves in autumn and winter.
  • Ash, birch, elm, oak and poplar are some important species of trees.

Climate

  • The region remains under the influence of cold rain-bearing westerlies.
  • There are four distinct seasons—winter, spring, summer and autumn.

Human Adaptation in British Type of Climate Region

  • A large part of deciduous forests have been cleared for extracting timber and fuel and for cultivation.
  • Wheat is grown extensively followed by barley. Potatoes are grown in abundance.
  • Animals are reared for milk and meat. Sheep rearing is also an important economic activity.
