The climate affects both the soil and the plants. The climates may not necessarily define the soil, but it can definitely change the soil over time. Climate almost always has more effect on plants, as they need regular perspiration or moisture, and also nutrients in the air.

The soil is affected by climate and plants. The type of plants growing on the soil can effect the change in nutrients in the soil (some plants take nutrients, others give nutrients back) and the type of plants growing on the soil is also determined partially by the condition of the soil.

The plants relies on both the soil and the climate for adequate growing conditions. The plants need key nutrients and moisture, which is gained most of the time through the climate and the soil, through the leaves and roots.
