Notes on Montane Sub-Tropical Forests of India. Sub-tropical Broad-leaved Hill Forests: These forests are found in the eastern Himalayas to the east of 88°E longitude at altitudes varying from to m where the mean annual rainfall is 75 cm to cm, average annual temperature is 18°°C and the average humidity is 80 per cent.

forest, a dense growth of trees, together with other plants, covering a large area of land. The science concerned with the study, preservation, and management of forests is forestry.A forest is an ecosystem—a community of plants and animals interacting with one another and with the physical environment (see ecology).The forests of the world are classified in three general types, or.

India has some of the world's most biodiverse ecozones—desert, high mountains, highlands, tropical and temperate forests, swamplands, plains, grasslands, areas surrounding rivers and an island archipelago. It hosts three biodiverse hotspots: the Western Ghats, the Himalayas and the Indo-Burma region.

These hotspots have numerous endemic species. Inaround 7,43, km 2 of land in the. The most obvious resource of a deciduous forest is its trees.

A huge variety of trees can comprise such forests and are harvested for their wood. The lumber taken from the deciduous forests has a wide range of uses, from construction to boats and furniture. In the temperate deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere, trees commonly found.

Tropical Evergreen forests of India are found in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Western Ghats, which fringe the Arabian Sea, the coastline of peninsular India, and the greater Assam region in the north-east.

Small remnants of evergreen forest are found in Odisha state. Semi-evergreen forest is more extensive than the evergreen formation partly because evergreen forests tend to degrade to. A rainforest is typically made up of four key layers: emergent, upper canopy, understory, and forest floor. In the top emergent layer, trees as tall as feet (60 meters) grow far apart and tall.

Temperate-further from equator-hot summers, cold winters-tall grass or short grass-soil very fertile-interiors of continents -little rain for trees to grow-begin at edge of desert biome and stretch to forest biome-fire leave nutrients and minerals=more grass growth.

In places like Indonesia, central Africa, and the Amazon, forests are being cleared to make room for livestock, replaced by mono-crop plantations like soy and palm oil. The difference between a temperate rainforest and a tropical rainforest is their location.

Both the temperate and tropical rainforest biomes receive over 60 inches of rain per year. Both types of rainforest have unique species that rely on the heavy rainfall and high humidity to survive.

Rain Forests. Since rainfall controls tropical vegetation in the tropics, rain forest types may be classified with reference to local climate.

These include lowland, montane, subtropical, and temperate rain common features are at least 1, millimeters (approximately 33 inches) of annual rainfall and evergreen vegetation with lianas and epiphytes.

Notes on Montane Temperate Forests of India. Montane Wet Temperate Forests: This variety of forests grows at a height of to m above sea level in areas where the mean annual rainfall is cm to cm, the mean annual temperature is about 11 °C to 14°C and the average relative humidity is over 80 per cent.

Forests at different latitudes and elevations form distinctly different ecozones: boreal forests around the poles, tropical forests around the Equator, and temperate forests at the middle latitudes.

Higher elevation areas tend to support forests similar to those at higher latitudes, and amount of precipitation also affects forest composition.

India is a land of great variety of natural vegetation. Himalayan heights are marked with temperate vegetation; the W ester n Ghats and the Andaman Nicobar Islands have tropical rain forests, the deltaic regions have tropical forests and mangroves; the desert and semi desert areas of File Size: 1MB.
