Caption: Global climate map. 1823 map of isothermal lines and climate zones for most of the world. Drawn by US geographer William Channing Woodbridge (1794-1845) based on the accounts of German geographer Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) and others. The regions are colour-coded: torrid (pink), hot (orange), warm (yellow), temperate (light green), cold (dark green), wintery (blue) and frozen (purple). In the Atlantic, labels show plants common to both continents and their climate range. Examples are: sugar cane, maize, apple, orange, lemon, coffee, olive, wheat, cherry and grape. New Holland (Australia) is mentioned at lower right.
