The Temperate Climate
The region that lies within the 30° and 45° degrees latitude of the Northern hemisphere is characterized by temperate climate. Within this zone the slope of the sun rays is on average 45 degrees resulting in moderate low or high temperatures. Day succeeds night, summer succeeds spring, the winter succeeds autumn. The weather conditions are not very adverse or abrupt. The smooth changes of the temperature and the alternation of day and night help the plant evolution.
The Mediterranean Climate
Within the 15 degrees lie the countries in the Mediterranean Basin and California, which are characterized by Mediterranean Climate. Greece lies about the middle of this zone with the Greek products having a significant competitive advantage.
