Process_Description:
Temperature zones were created by union of level III ecoregions with minimum winter temperature in 5 degree Farenheit bands. Ecoregions with a correlation between minimum winter temperature and annual precipitation that was < |0.35| were further subdivided by precipitation by the union of those temperature zones with annual precipitation. Polygons less that 2000 acres were elinimated using the longest edge method keeping the outside edge of the feature. Finally, a dissolve on the seed zone field was done to create single part polygons
