Negative correlations were discovered between longitude and the mean temperature of the coldest month (MTCM), the sum of negative temperatures (SNT), the duration of the vegetation period (VP), and the mean annual sunshine duration (MASD), while the correlations are positive with the mean temperature of the warmest month (MTWM), Conrad's continentality
index (CCI), and Rasins's continentality
The chart (Figure 17) shows that the determination coefficient is close to 51%, which lets deducting, that there is an important positive correlation between fires frequency and continentality
gradient in Maamora forest; the areas more distant from the sea are the most affected by forest fires.
This is the continental effect, or continentality
. This accounts, in part, for the moderate climate of Western Europe.
In the Sahara, temperatures vary greatly with latitude, altitude, and the degree of continentality
. Surprisingly, the average annual temperatures in the Sahara are not the highest in Africa, as the average annual temperatures in the Sahel and the shores of the Red Sea may locally exceed 86[degrees]F (30[degrees]C), higher than those of the Sahara.
indices: methodological revision and proposition.
In addition, the two dominant species gradients at the state scale were associated with continentality
and growing season moisture stress, climatic gradients that integrate elements of both temperature and moisture.
and oceanity are important parameters which describe local climatic conditions.
These spaces corresponding to the bioclimatic units (bioclimates, thermotypes, ombrotypes, continentality
, and isobioclimates) have been progressively delimited and adjusted.
At the same time the domination of fractions of the evrivalent fractions of plants is noted--on the scales of continentality
of climate, cryoclimatic, richness of soil's nitrogen, and illumination-shading.
This is due to the decrease of the influence of marine, generally colder waters, and the effect of continentality
. This situation was made also in the Loukkos River estuary .
As the explanatory variables the mean Ellenberg values (light, temperature, continentality
, moisture, reaction, nitrogen) (Ellenberg et al., 1992) were calculated for each plot and then the mean values for the releve groups were used.
Exploring Holocene continentality
changes in Fennoscandia using present and past tree distributions.
I have argued elsewhere, however, that the designation captures not only a contingent relation to Europe, but also a certain commitment with European continentality
as a project as well as Eurocentric conceptions of space and time.
Scarce slopes, altitudes [mayor que o iqual a] 600 m, DPT high and marked continentality
. AP [approximately equal to] 800 mm and SP [approximately equal to] 100 mm with great thermal amplitude.
