Tropical seasonal forests - Ecosystem
Tropical seasonal forests occur in regions where total annual rainfall is very high but segregated into pronounced wet and dry periods. This kind of forests is found in South East Asia, central and south America, northern Australia, western Africa and tropical islands of the pacific.
In exceedingly wet tropical seasonal forests, commonly known as monsoon forests, the annual precipitation may be several times that of the tropical rain forests. Teak is often a major large tree in the best known tropical seasonal forests of India (central India) and south east Asia. Bamboo is also an important climax shrub in these areas.
