We also used selected climographs to show the sensitivity of species-specific ranges to modeled differences of mean monthly temperature and precipitation.
Use climographs 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.
Use the data to create climographs. Then, answer the questions to figure out which biome these data represent.</p> <pre> Climate Data Average Rainfall Average Temperature Month (Millimeters) (Celsius) January 249
