California is characterized by a Mediterranean climate; cool, moist winters and dry summers. Mediterranean climates are typical of areas between 30- and 35-degrees latitude on the west coasts of continents. Mediterranean climates are found in California, the Mediterranean region of Europe, South Africa, Chile, and small parts of Australia. Plants that are native to these areas have adaptations that enable them to survive long summer droughts, often months without rain.
