More about India
The subtropical to tropical climate is determined by the seasonal change of the monsoons. In the winter months (around November to June) the dry north-east monsoon blows, in summer the rain-bringing south-west monsoon blows. The southeast coast of India has a second rainy season from October to December due to the tropical Bengal cyclones. The time of the beginning, the duration and the amount of precipitation of the monsoons blowing in summer are of decisive importance for agriculture. The productivity of the precipitation fluctuates so strongly that it can lead to both floods and droughts. The summer monsoon winds absorb moisture over the Indian Ocean and bring extremely high rainfall especially to the Western Ghats and Assam, which allows tropical rainforests and tea plantations to flourish. The northeast (Cherrapunji) and the west coast of the Decan (2,000–3,000 mm annually). The Ganges-Brahmaputra lowlands also receive rainfall of up to 2000 mm per year. The lowest amounts of rain are received in the flat north-west (less than 200 mm per year) and in the areas in the rain shadow of the Western Ghats. The east coast receives around 1,300-1,600 mm of precipitation per year. Check behealthybytomorrow to see India for All the Senses.
The mean annual temperatures are almost the same in all of India, with the exception of the mountains (in the north they are 25 ° C, in the south 27 ° C). However, the temperature differences between summer and winter are significantly greater in the north than in the south. The hottest time is before the summer monsoon (34 ° C in the north, 29 ° C in the south). At altitudes from around 5,500 m above sea level in the Himalayas and Karakoram, precipitation falls as snow even in summer. Tropical cyclones are common in the Bay of Bengal and can cause great damage.
Due to the regionally different amounts of precipitation, different plant formations have developed.
As far as they have not been destroyed by humans, tropical rainforests can be found in the West Indies (West Ghats, Malabar Coast), on the southern edge of the Himalayas, in the northeast (Assam) and in the mountainous countries of the south (Nilgiri Mountains), whereby the vegetation of the Nilgiri Mountains is similar to that of Assam ( Rhododendrons, epiphytes, orchids, tea bush); Assam is one of the most orchid-rich areas on earth and the home of the tea bush (alongside southwest China and northern Myanmar).
In central India, savannahs with poor vegetation dominate in the area of the Eastern Ghats, further south salbaum and bamboo forests and to the west monsoon rainforests, interrupted by arable land and grasslands. To the northwest, the monsoon forests change into semi-deserts and deserts. Mangrove forests grow at the mouths of the rivers.
The animal world of India belongs largely to the oriental region, but Palearctic species that have immigrated also occur especially in the northwest. The diverse habitat types of the subcontinent offer a habitat for a very species-rich fauna. Due to the high population density, however, many species are endangered today and only occur in national parks; Poaching still plays a role. Many of the approximately 350 species of mammals are particularly affected . The artifacts are rich in species with water buffalo, gaur , various, partly original antelopes (stag goat antelope, Nilgau antelope, four-horned antelope), bucks (Nilgirithar), goat-like (Goral, Serau) and, above all, a noticeable number of deer (muntjak deer, axis deer, sambar deer, etc.).
The odd ungulates are represented with tiny remnants of the khurs (half donkeys) in the northwest, but especially with the endangered Indian rhinoceros (only around 1,000 animals) in the rainy northeast, where even larger wild populations of the Indian elephant occur.
The land carnivores are unusually diverse. B. the Indian lion and the red dog only occur locally in small residual populations. The cheetah has now been completely eradicated and species such as the formerly widespread Leopard, the clouded leopard and snow leopard in the Himalayas are at great risk.
The once widespread King Tiger was close to extinction; its populations have been stabilized again, especially in protected areas, but are again under pressure. Big bears are represented in India by the endemic sloth bear; the monkeys by langurs (Hulman, revered as sacred) and macaques, of which the rhesus monkey, which is common in the north, is best known.
In addition, the pointed squirrels (Tupaias), which are restricted to the Orientalis, also occur in India. Special features among the mammals are the peculiar pangolins and the freshwater Ganges and Indus dolphins.
The bird world of India is also rich in species with over 1,200 breeding species. In addition to cranes (especially the Sarus crane is a symbol of a happy marriage due to its lifelong pairing), kingfishers, hornbills, parrots, birds of prey and passerines, the hens are particularly diverse with peacocks, various pheasants and the bankiva chicken, the ancestral form of the domestic chicken.
Among the numerous reptiles , the endemic gharial , various pond turtles, lizards such as agamas, skinks and monitor lizards as well as the tiger python , cobras (including the snake-eating king cobra) and chain viper are particularly characteristic.
Sea turtles are found on the coasts, especially those of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, which belong to India, where there are also extraordinarily species-rich coral reefs. The diversity of insects is unmanageable.
