- Geography and climate of Abkhazia → Geography of Abkhazia — The current title is redundant; climate is an aspect of geography. Neelix (talk) 01:32, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
- Geography influences climate, but climate is not the same thing as geography. Anthony Appleyard (talk) 07:33, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
- I think normally there is seperate articles for these, so if you want to split it, that's fine with me, otherwise I don't really see the need to rename. sephia karta | di mi 09:23, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
- For nearly every country in the world, there is a geography article with the title format "Geography of x" with a subsection called "Climate" (ex. Geography of Afghanistan#Climate, Geography_of_Angola#Climate, Geography of Guyana#Climate). The climatology article itself states that the study is a subfield of physical geography. Anthony Appleyard states, "climate is not the same thing as geography", and this is true, but all aspects of climate are studied in geography. Climate studies are inherently geographical; any article about the geography of an area would be incomplete without a discussion of climate. The current title of "Geography and climate of Abkhazia" is necessarily redundant. Neelix (talk) 13:15, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
"Geography of Foo" is the standard. As there is agreement, I have done the move.18:57, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
