Malabar Coast moist forests

WWF Abstract

In the semi-evergreen forests along IndiaĆ¢s Malabar Coast, teak plantations have replaced many of the original trees, changing forever the character of the forest. With the loss of its natural habitat, many of the large animal species have also disappeared from the ecoregion. However, these moist forests still harbor an estimated 97 species of mammals, including a small rodent species that is found only here.
