The Himalayas climate ranges varies depending on location as well as elevation. Climates ranges from subtropical in the southern foothills, with average summer temperatures around 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and average winter temperatures around 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Conditions in the Middle Himalayan valleys average about 77 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and more cooler winters. In the higher elevated areas of the Middle Himalayas range from 59-64 in the summer to below freezing in the winter.

The Himalayan mountains is known to have four seasons: Spring, Summer, Monsoon, and Winter. Monsoon is considered to be the wet season and lasts from June through September. Dry season lasts from January-February as well as November-December.

The Himalayan mountains compared to other biomes shares many of the same components. The biome is very diverse and the weather as well as temperature fluctuates depending on the different ecosystem and part of the Himalayas you are in. Mount Everest can experience temperatures as low as -36 degrees while others parts can be well over 80 degrees. It not only has dry seasons and monsoon seasons but it also has an in between season more similar to a spring season. The Latitude is 25N to 40N and the Longitude is 70E to 100E.

None of the Himalayas different types of soil are very fertile most types are in a class of infertile acidic soils which is not fit for growing. Other areas also include a variety of fragile soils with pine needles which would also deem as infertile. Some areas in the sub-mountain areas have clay mixed in which can be very fertile the land when talking about how fertile soil is. The soil is not typically used for farming considering most areas are infertile.

Evasive and Endangered Species

lantana

This is considered to be an Evasive species because it is known to be a noxious weed. It is native to the tropics of Africa. It is not purposefully evasive.

Snow Leopard

The snow leopard is considered to be an endangered species. There is no real habitat destruction when talking about the snow leopards habitat the only part of HIPPCO that applies to the snow leopard would be the I and the O. The I applies to the snow leopard due the the fact there could be competition for food among the remaining snow leopards. O, due to the fact that snow leopards are a substitute for tigers which are very endangered in Asia. Tiger bones are also very valuable in Asian medicine and snow leopards are equally as valuable, so many times we see poachers poaching them.

Plants

Himalayan blue poppY

They can sustain with low sunlight and warm weather, they are found mainly in the fertile soil. They constantly need moist soil to survive.

Cotoneaster adpressus

They need hot overhead sun to warm low sun. Don't n Ed very much water which means they can sustain if a drought ever happens they can also survive in constantly moist summer so they can survive monsoon season.
