natural vegetation

  1. 1. • Vegetation is very important natural resource. • Natural vegetation is the plant cover in its original form without, much changes done by man. • The distribution of natural vegetation is primarily determined by climate. • At present about one fifth of the total area of India is under forest. Rather it should be one third. • There are more than 5000 species of trees in India, half of which are timber trees.
  2. 2. The forests are unevenly distributed and can be broadly classified as under:- Tropical Rain Forests Tropical Deciduous Forests Desert Vegetation Mountain Vegetation Mangrove Forest
  3. 3. Tropical Rain Forests • These forests are found along the rainy slopes of the western Ghats, the hills of eastern India, the Andaman & Nicobar. • They are Evergreen by nature and are at least 60 meters long and above. • Rainfall is more than 200cm . • Main trees are ebony, mahogany and rosewood.
  4. 4. Tropical Deciduous Forests • Tropical Deciduous Forests are also called monsoon forests . • They are found along the foothills to Himalaya mountains , the eastern slopes of the western ghat, rainier part of the Deccan plateau , the plains of Bihar & Uttar Pradesh as well as in the states of jharkhand,orissa & Chhattisgarh . • Teak & Sal are the most valuable tree found in these forests.
  5. 5. Desert Vegetation • Desert vegetation is the mostly found In area of low rain fall & humidity & high temperature . • The trees are widely scattered with bushes & shrubs between them . • Desert vegetation is found in dry areas of Punjab ,Haryana, Rajasthan etc. • Acacia , cacti , babul & kikar are the main trees there .
  6. 6. Mountain vegetation • Forests in the mountains are distributed according to altitude, as the temperature decreases with increase in altitude . • the vegetation in mountainous regions vary from tropical or alpine types .
  7. 7. Mangrove forests • Mangrove forests are found in areas flooded by high tides of the sea. • These forests can survive in both fresh and salt water. • These forest are full of ‘Sundari’ trees. • The tree provide hard, oily & durable wood, which is used in construction work & making boats.
  8. 8. IMPORTANCE OF FORESTS IN INDIA  India has nearly 2% of total forests whereas Minimum desired area should be about 33%.  We get variety of products from forests. The forests play an important role in our economy.  Forests helps in regulating air currents, moderating floods, preventing soil erosion etc.
