mid-latitude mixed forest

mid-latitude mixed forest A forest comprising coniferous and broad-leaved trees, and belonging to one of two broad categories: (a)ecotone mixed forest, which has characteristics transitional between those of the two great belts of boreal coniferous forest and mid-latitude broad-leaved deciduous forest; and(b)a second type that seems to have the status of true climatic climax, in which both the conifers and broad-leaved trees are evergreens. These evergreen mixed forests were once extensive in the Mediterranean basin, and in the southern hemisphere are found in Chile, southern Brazil, Tasmania, northern New Zealand, and the Cape Province (South Africa).

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
