Lower Gangetic Plains moist deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

If you stood at the confluence of the Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers, you would catch glimpses of a disappearing forest. This tropical ecoregion once teemed with tigers, greater one-horned rhinoceroses, Asian elephants, gaurs, and swamp deer, to name just a few species. Today, explosive population growth has led to widespread clearing and cultivation of the sediment-rich plains, taking a heavy toll on the biodiversity of the ecoregion.
