Why does the deciduous type of vegetation occupy most of India?
- Rainfall and climate are the two important factors which affect the natural vegetation of any country.
- India is a tropical region and it has a monsoon type of climate. It receives maximum rainfall from the months of June to September due to the Southwest monsoon winds.
- Moreover, it experiences hot climate throughout the year. Due to this, deciduous forests are found here. These forests are found in regions where the rainfall is between 1000 mm and 2000 mm.
- In dry seasons, trees shed their leaves so that water is not lost due to evaporation. Teak, bamboo, banyan, peepal, etc., are the trees found in these forests.
Therefore, the deciduous type of vegetation occupies most of India
