      Comparing the effect of land use on soil erosion in the humid tropics (this review) and in temperate regions (Renard et al., , Burke and Sugg, ), we found that changes in soil erosion control along a gradient of land uses had similar shape in both temperate and tropical areas. A difference between these climatic zones is observed in Cited by: Study area. The study area was situated in the Wet Tropics Bioregion, a humid tropical zone in northeastern Queensland, Australia (Fig. 1), covering approximately million area is characterized by a mosaic of naturally and artificially fragmented areas of tropical rain forest interspersed with fire-prone vegetation (e.g., grassland, open eucalypt woodland, and forest [Hopkins Cited by:

The map below shows the areas within the tropics which have all 12 months of the year with temperatures above 18 °C. The three types of tropical climate are classified as Tropical Rainforest or Equatorial (Af), Tropical Monsoon (Am) and Tropical Wet and Dry or Savannah (Aw). As can be observed in the map these three tropical climates are confined to a global band known as the Tropics which.

      2. Tropical wet and dry climates Tropical wet and dry climates occur in areas next to regions that have tropical wet climates. Temperatures in tropical wet and dry climates are similar to those in tropical wet climates, where they remain high throughout the year. The main difference between the .

The humid tropics are located close to the equator. The Tropic of Cancer at latitude °N and the Tropic of Capricorn at latitude °S give a broad definition to the zone.

The equatorial radiation climate is quite different in nature to the climate. able development among tropical and nontropical countries alike, with special concern for the world's humid tropics.

This report focuses on the humid tropics, a biogeographical area within the tropical zone that contains most of its population and biologically rich natural resources.

The humid tropics contain some of the world's richest, most diverse, most important and most threatened environments.

This book draws on recent work by geographers, biologists, ecologists, geologists and climatologists to present a complete and integrated appraisal of the natural environment of all the humid tropical regions of the book opens with a discussion of the problems of 5/5(1).

The first four parts of the book cover the physical basis of hydrology in the humid tropics: climatology, meteorology, process hydrology, sedimentation, water quality and freshwater ecology. This is followed by extensive treatment of the human and societal issues: land-use changes, water resource management, and rural and urban water supply in.

Agricultural production practices in tropical regions are frequently unsustainable because the capacity of land to support crop production is rapidly exhausted. Steady progress toward sustainability and the resolution of problems in the humid tropics requires that several scientific disciplines be integrated and managed to ensure.

Tropical Dairy Farming is a manual designed for use by dairy production advisors working in tropical areas, especially in South-East Asia. It aims to increase the productivity of small holder dairy farmers in the humid tropics by improving the feeding management of their livestock.

It shows how to provide dairy cows with cost-effective feeds that match small holder farming systems and. A humid subtropical climate is a zone of climate characterized by hot and humid summers, and cold to mild winters.

These climates normally lie on the southeast side of all continents, generally between latitudes 25° and 35° and are located poleward from adjacent tropical climates. While many subtropical climates tend to be located at or near coastal locations, in some cases they extend.

CHAPTER 27 Humid Tropical Environments The humid tropical environment has generated great interest amongst geographers in recent years as concern about deforestation and its local and international impacts has been widely publicized. It is a large and diverse environment.

However it has attributed the label humid subtropical to a precise list of regions with Cfa climate but not to all regions that have climate Cfa according to the classification of Koppen.

Both these sources clearly define the latitudes between 20° and 35/40° and what are the regions with this climate and neither of these sources cites. Environmental problems in the humid tropical regions, where the focus is on the fate and management of the surviving rainforest and climate change, are attracting increasing attention internationally.
