Indian Flora

Home » Flora
Biodiversity is the hallmark of Indian Subcontinent. The Indian subcontinent has more than one climatic zone in it. The ice clad Himalayas in the temperate zone on one end and the tropical south on the other end offers contrasting environments. This encompasses grasslands, swamplands, plains, deserts, highlands and high mountains Based on the gradual transition many varieties of flora could be seen in India.
The Indian Flora has been thus divided for convenience into three.
  • Himalayan Sub region
  • Tropical forests
  • Indian peninsular region
