Vegetation in a region is affected by the climate and rainfall of the region.

In dia lies in the tropical zone and it has a monsoon type climate throughout the year.

Also, a major portion of India receives seasonal rainfall between 1000-2000 mm.

Deciduous forests thrive well in this condition and these forests shed their leaves during the hot and dry summer so that water is not lost due to evaporation.

Teak, bamboo, banyan, peepal, etc. are the trees found in deciduous forest of India.
