    Description

    The Subtropical Division (230) and Savanna Division (410), both based on Bailey’s (1996) ecoregions, are found in the Southern United States (http://www.na.fs.fed.us/fire/cwedocs/map%20new_divisions.pdf). The Subtropical Division occupies the southern Atlantic and Gulf coastal areas. It is characterized by a humid subtropical climate with hot humid summers (chapter 3). It has no pronounced dry season but precipitation is normally higher during summer. Soils are strongly leached and rich in iron and aluminum oxides. The natural vegetation throughout much of the Subtropical Division is forest. It includes the Outer Coastal Plain Mixed Forest Province, the Southeastern Mixed Forest Province (which occupies the inner Coastal Plain area), and the Lower Mississippi Riverine Forest Province (McNab and Avers 1994).
