Does anyone know about agricultural zoning? like what types of plants can grow in what ecosystems? I'm trying to further define my nations by the types of plants and food grown in the area, but I'm not quite sure where to start.

I'd look into the climate of the area you're planning on making your location and seeing what plants grow there. even using what location it most resembles helps, I figured out you can grow melons in the Sahara Desert!


I don't really know much about this myself so i looked it up and this is a link to the wikipedia article on the Koeppen Climate Classification. He was a botanist and basically decided to classify the world according to what plants can grow in wich areas and to put it on a practical scale that anyone can use. So you can just classify your climates according to that and then see what plants would work :)

Hope that was helpful, at least i can say i learned something new because of your question!
