Earth's temperature zones can be broadly categorised into three-

  • Tropical
  • Temperate Zone
  • Polar Zone.

These zones can be further divided into smaller ones, each having a slightly different climate. The climate combined with living conditions determine the plant and animal life in that region.

Polar region have lowest temperatures and filled with ice caps. Since they are at the top and bottom portions of earth, there will be 6 months of continuous days and 6 months of continuous nights ( The number may vary)

Tropical region will get exposed to maximum sunlight on the planet and the temperature remains relatively same throughout the year, which is hot. Here the seasonal changes are less.

On the other hand, temperate climate has wider temperature ranges and more seasonal changes throughout the year. Here the sunlight will be fallen at an angle.
