What is the relationship between elevation and climate?

    At the bottom of a mountain nearby the equator (within 50ish degrees longitude), the biome will be tropical or temperate, depending on your location. As you move up the mountain, the biome should change to be like one closer to the poles, and could even have an arctic climate. There is not a specific relationship between the height on the mountain and the biome you are at, because there will be different climates depending on the location on the Earth. The side of the mountain facing the sun will also be warmer than the other side, so it will have a greater area of tropical or temperate climates.
