Geography (Ms. Sue)

What are two reasons for the variety of climate and vegetation found in Latin America?

My answer: This variety of climate and vegetation is due to several factors. First, Latin America spans a great distance on each side of the equator and there are large changes in elevation because of the massive mountains in the region. Second, the warm currents of the Atlantic Ocean and the cold currents of the Pacific Ocean affect the climate.
