Concept

# Problem: East of the Mississippi River, in Hopkinsville Kentucky, the mean annual precipitation is 130 cm. The mean annual temperature is 14.3°C. In the winter, the mean temperature is 7.3°C, while in summer it is 20.6°C. Using the climograph shown here, how would we classify the biome found in Hopkinsville?a. temperate rainforestb. temperate broadleaf forestc. shrubland during the winter, temperate forest during the summerd. temperate forest during the winter, tropical seasonal forest during the summere. Biomes are not defined by annual values. It really depends on what season you're in
