    Here is a map for almost all of them:

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&sou...

    And here is the rest of the information for some of the climates:

    Tundra -

    Map: http://www.marietta.edu/~biol/biomes/images/tundra...

    Precipitation: Less than 100 mm per year

    Vegetation: Willows, sedges and grasses, many in dwarf forms compared to their growth forms in warmer climes. Lichens and mosses also.

    Location: Largely restricted to the northern hemisphere, Canada, Russia and Greenland.

    Description: Brief summers, with temperatures above freezing lasting for only a few weeks at most. However, this "warm" summer coincides with periods of almost 24 hour daylight, so plant growth can be explosive.

    Subarctic -

    M: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Koppen_World_Map...

    P: No more than 15 inches a year

    V: Low diversity, conifers, taiga, swamps and lakes

    L: Generally at latitudes from 50° to 70°N poleward of the humid continental climates. Around the Mediterranean Basin, Iran, Tajikistan, Turkey,

    D: Some of the most extreme seasonal temperature variations found on the planet. Summers are short; no more than three months of the year (but at least one month) must have a 24-hour average temperature of at least 10 °C (50 °F) to fall into this category of climate.

    Humid Continental -

    M: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thum...

    P: Relatively well distributed year-round in many areas with this climate, while others may see a marked reduction in wintry precipitation and even a wintertime drought.

    V:

    L: Above 40° N latitude, within the central and northeastern portions of North America, Europe, and Asia.

    D: The mean temperature of the coldest month must be below −3 °C (26.6 °F), and there must be at least four months whose mean temperatures are at or above 10 °C (50 °F). In addition, the location in question must not be semi-arid or arid.

    West Coast Marine-

    M: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thum...

    P: Modest to heavy in oceanic climates

    V: Thick forests and a wide variety of plant life including evergreen trees (conifers) such as spruce, cedar, pine, redwood. Many species of ferns and grasses also grow in this area.

    L: Marine West Coast is usually located along the west coast of mid-latitude continents. Predominant climate type across much of Europe, coastal northwestern North America, portions of southwestern South America and small areas of Africa, southeast Australia, New Zealand, as well as isolated locations elsewhere.

    D: Features warm, but not hot summers and cool, but not cold winters, and a relatively narrow annual temperature range.

    Mediterranean

    M: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thu...

    P: impossible or unlikely except for the occasional thunderstorm, while bringing rain, with snow at higher elevations during winter.

    V: Evergreen trees, Deciduous trees, Fruit trees, Shrubs, Sub-shrubs, Grasses, and herbs.

    L: The lands around the Mediterranean Sea form the largest area where this climate type is found, but it also prevails in much of California, in parts of Western and South Australia, in southwestern South Africa, sections of Central Asia, and in parts of central coastal Chile.

    D: Aquatic communities in Mediterranean climate regions are adapted to a yearly cycle in which abiotic (environmental) controls of stream populations and community structure dominate during floods, Biotic component (e.g. competition and predation) controls become increasingly important as the discharge declines, and environmental controls regain dominance as environmental conditions become very harsh (i.e. hot and dry); as a result, these communities are well suited to recover from droughts, floods, and fires.

    Desert

    M: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e4...

    P: Less than 250 mm per year

    V: Cacti and saltbush. Grasses and low shrubs are the dominant vegetation here and the ground may be covered with lichens.

    L: The Sahara, the Arabian, Syrian and Kalahari Deserts, large parts of Iran, southern and central Pakistan, northwest India, and much of Australia. Central Asia and India.

    D: Hot, mild, and cold desert climates. Precipitation is too low to sustain any vegetation at all, or at most a very scanty scrub.
