Interestingly enough, though climate is involved, it isn't the determining factor or definition for these two terms. A tropical climate is where there are a grouping of warm low pressures...like the rainforest areas. The subtropical climate is characterized by high pressures and little to no humidity or water....think deserts. Both experience higher temperatures.
a tropical climate is usally wet humid and hot.a subtropical climate is humid and hot but not very wet
