NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Geography Chapter 8 India : Climate, Vegetation, and Wildlife

In India, the climate and vegetation vary a lot when you go from the Himalayas to the Thar Desert to the forests of West Bengal. The climate of India is recognised in four types, winter, summer, rainy and monsoon. Different types of natural vegetation are dependent on other climatic conditions. Indian forests are home to a variety of species of animals and a large variety of reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, insects and worms, which dwell in the forest. The climate of India is a monsoon type. It means monsoon winds bring most of the rain. Mawsynram in Meghalaya receives the world's highest rainfall. India has a wide range of natural vegetation—Tropical evergreen forest, tropical deciduous forest, Thorny bushes, Mountain vegetation and Mangrove forests. The animals that live in a specific region are what we call the wildlife of the area. Just as vegetation is the flora, wildlife is the fauna of a region. Animals can be found in every time of vegetation and are usually isolated from any human contact. It includes all the animals, birds, insects etc. of the region.
