Presentation Transcript

A forest is best defined as an ecosystem  or assemblage of ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation.


This entire habitat that we live in has immense biodiversity ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation


Biodiversity or biological diversity
Biodiversity or biological diversity ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

The variability among living organisms on the earth, including the variability within and between species and ecosystems


Forest facts
Forest facts ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation


Tropical rainforests
Tropical rainforests  ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

Some rainforest monkeys are omnivores, eating both animals and plants

80% of the flowers in the Australian rainforests are not found anywhere else in the world


Sub tropical forests
Sub-tropical forests  ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

Bats are essential for the pollination of many tropical foodstuffs such as bananas and mangoes


Plantation forests
Plantation forests ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

As the climate change issue reaches fever pitch, interest in the use of forests as a means of

removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere has accelerated

Forest establishment can also contribute to other social and environmental outcomes.


Montane forests
Montane ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation forests

The elevation of the montane forests life zone is from about 8,000 to 10,000 ft above sea level. 

  You can tell that you are getting higher in the mountains by the cooler temperatures, the dense mountain forests, and by the increased precipitation throughout the year. 


Temperate forests
Temperate forests ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

-Animals that live in the temperate deciduous forest must be able to adapt to the changing seasons. -Lichen, moss, ferns, wildflowers and other small plants can be found on the forest floor


Mediterranean forests
Mediterranean forests  ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub , defined by the World Wildlife Fund, characterized by dry summers and rainy winters.

Flora And Fauna ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation


The plants of a particular region, habitat, or geological ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetationperiod is called flora.


The ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetationanimals of a particular region, habitat, or geological period is called fauna.


DID YOU KNOW? ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

Over 81,000 species of fauna and 47,000 species of flora are found in this country. 15,000 flowering species are endemic (indigenous) to India!!


‘Threatened’ ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetationand then ‘Critical’

10% of India’s recorded wild flora and 20% of its mammals are on the threatened list. Many of these are right now categorized as ‘critical’.


The Lost Species! ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

Normal Species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation


Normal Species are species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

whose population levels are

considered to be normal for

their survival.

Endangered Species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

  • Species in danger of extinction. The survival of such species is difficult if the negative factors which have lead to the decline in their population continue to operate.

  • Indian Rhino

  • Indian Wild Ass

  • Crocodile

  • Black Buck

Extinct Species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

  • Species which are not found after searches of known or likely areas where they may occur. A species may be extinct from a local area, region, country , continent or entire earth.

  • Asiatic Cheetah

  • Pink Head Duck

  • Dinosaurs

Vulnerable Species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

  • Species in whose population has declined to levels from where it is likely move into the endangered category in near future if the negative factors continue.

  • Blue Sheep

  • Asiatic Elephant

  • Gangetic Dolphin

Endemic Species ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

  • Species which are found in a particular regions usually isolated by natural or geographical barriers.

  • Andaman Teal

  • Nicobar Pigeon

  • Andaman Wild Pig

Rare ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation Species

  • Species with small population may move into the endangered or vulnerable category in near future if the negative factors continue.

VANISHING FORESTS ecosystems dominated by trees and other woody vegetation

The dimensions of deforestation in India are staggering. The forest cover in the country is estimated to be 637,293 sq km, which is 19.39 % of the total area .According to the State of Forest Report , the dense forest cover has increased due to plantation by different agencies. The State of Forest Report does not differentiate between natural forest and plantation. These report also fail to giver accurate information about vanishing forests.
