Abstract

For nearly all phytoclimatic zones there is a high correspondence between the position of the meteorological stations in multidimensional climatic space and in the territory. Climatic variation thus follows a regular pattern in the territories of phytoclimatic zones. However, multiple regression confirmed that Procrustes measures of dissimilarity within each zone are significantly correlated with the standard deviation of altitude and the number of rivers of that zone. These two geographic features thus affect the pattern of climatic variation. -from Authors
