What do the blank/ white parts of this map represent?

Krystin Davey · Jul 27th, 2018


Hi Krystin,
The blank parts fall outside of the six zones mentioned in the key of the poster. They have unique climates which would be too diverse and varied to include. This poster focuses on the main types of vegetation of the world reflected in Geography ACHASSK088.
