Khathiar-Gir dry deciduous forests

WWF Abstract

What conditions produce a dry forest? In this case, little rainfall for over eight months of the year and temperatures that regularly exceed 104 degrees F (40 degrees C). This seems like an uninviting place to live, with trees that are bare for much of the year and where thorny scrub and rocky outcrops dominate the landscape. But many animals thrive here-- including the Asiatic lion, which is found nowhere else on Earth.
