I encounter both similar terms while reading, isotherms and isotheres. Could someone help distinguish and explain to me the difference between them?

The general term isotherm refers to a line of equal or constant temperature, while isothere refers more specifically to lines of constant average summer temperature.

For what it's worth, coming from a background in forecasting and research centered around active weather rather than longer-term climate, isotherm is an extremely commonly-used term in weather discussions but I can't recall ever seeing isothere used in practice before now.
