South Western Ghats moist deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

During the monsoon season, a birdÂ’s eye view of the South Western Ghats Moist Deciduous Forests shows a carpet of green over a rough terrain. These forests, spreading from the lowlands to the mountain peaks, form one of the Indian subcontinentÂ’s richest and most diverse ecosystems. An impressive variety of wildlife calls this home, including large populations of Asian elephants, which wander between these forests and the neighboring forests.
