broad-leaved evergreen forest


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

North of the tropics, temperate, broad-leaved forests occur in the formation types: (a) broad-leaved evergreen, and (b) broad-leaved deciduous, the evergreen variants being restricted to the coastal plain of the Gulf of Mexico, S. Japan, and central China. South of the tropics, however, the broad-leaved forests are mainly evergreen, the only exception occurring in Chilean Patagonia. This forest type requires plentiful rainfall, well distributed throughout the year.
