North Western Ghats moist deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

At the beginning of the four-to-five-month dry season, the leaves are starting to fall in the North Western Ghats Moist Deciduous Forests. Soon, another layer of leaf litter will be added to the forest floor, providing cover for squirrels and other small creatures that live there. But when the monsoon rains return, the forests will turn green again.
