Page 73 - Forests are not spread evenly in India but are concentrated in the northeast, the Himalayan and Siwalik ranges, the central belt, strips along the Western Ghats and other hill areas, and in patches of coastal mangroves. Exclusive of mangrove areas, there are four main forest types: (a) moist, tropical forest (including the high-value Sal forests); (b) dry, tropical forests in the semi-arid regions (where teak is a valued species); (c) Himalayan and Siwalike forests; and (d) Western Ghat-style forests.
