Bio-geographical regions

Definition (

Bio-geographical regions show the extent of areas with common characteristics, usually based on climatic, topographic and geobotanical information. Thus the bio-geographical regions show areas with relatively homogeneous ecological conditions. Included in this theme is vegetation map data. The determination of structure and composition of the vegetation is based essentially on stands of ecosystems and their correlation with particular site conditions, commonly based on plant-sociological classification.
