Moreover, based on Dommarton Climograph
it was identified that five months of the year (June, July, August, September, and October) were frequently dry months, three months (May, November, and February) were semi-arid while December, January, and April were sub-humid months.

The 19 Alaskan vegetation classes (Table 4) used to produce the climographs shown in Figures 14 and 15 are based on the phenological classification of Fleming (1997, 2000).

to learn more about the climate of selected biomes.
To get a snapshot of a biome's climate, scientists create climographs
, or graphs that show the area's average precipitation and temperature for every month of the year.
