Differentiate between :
Rainforests and Savannah Climatic Regions
|Equatorial Rainforests||Savannah Climatic Regions|
|It lies between 0° to 10° latitudes in both hemispheres.||It lies between 10° to 20° latitudes N and S.|
|Temperature||As it lies near the equator sun rays are perpendicular and hence temperature is constantly high with an average temperature around 27°C.||Distinct wet summers and dry winters with summer temperatures around 35°C and winter temperatures around 24°C.|
|Rainfall||Heavy convectional rainfall of 2500 mm to 3000 mm is evenly distributed over the year.||In this region, the average rainfall of 250 mm to 1000 mm is expected.|
|Vegetation||Evergreen trees with dense three-layered vegetation are found in rainforests.||Tall thick grass (Elephant grass) with scattered drought-resistant trees are found in this region.|
|Animals||Climbing and jumping animals, reptiles, etc., are found in this region.||
Grazing of animals is common.
Herbivorous, carnivorous, and scavengers are found in this region.
|Regions of the world||This type of climate is found in the Amazon basin, Congo basin, east coast of Central America, Madagascar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines. and Papua New Guinea.||This type of climate is found in India in the peninsular plateau and rain-shadow zone in Maharashtra, Telangana, and Karnataka; parts of Mizoram. It is also found along the borders of Congo, South Central Africa, llanos of Venezuela, Campos of Brazil, etc.|
