SOME SUB-TROPICAL AND OTHER GRASSES IN NORTHLAND

  • E.H. Arnold

Abstract

Situated close to subtropical regions, Northland is subjected to the climatical high-pressure belt of the sub-tropics. The rainfall year is broadly divided into a dry summer season and a wet winter season, giving a contrast which 'decreases southward from Auckland City away from the high-pressure belt. Heavy rains of short duration and sometimes with little lasting effects occur during summer when sub-tropical lows suddenly come down over .the area. Temperatures are generally and consistently higher than further south, and light frosts are infrequently experienced in certain localities
