Bioclimatology

These are articles on Bioclimatology, a science concerned with the influence of climates on organisms, for instance the effects of climate on the development and distribution of plants, animals, and humans. Also included here are articles on Biometeorology, a closely related discipline in ecology which studies the effects of atmospheric or weather conditions on organisms.
