The author chose to look at seasons and structure of dry forests and concluded some interesting findings. We learn that seasons are often governed by the latitudinal position annual amount of rainfall. In the aspect of structure, we learn that no two dry forests are near similar.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
