subtropics

The indefinite belts in each hemisphere between the regions of tropical and temperate climates.

The polar boundaries are considered to be roughly 35°N and 35°S latitudes, but vary greatly according to continental influence, being farther poleward on the west coasts of continents and farther equatorward on the east coasts.
