, woodlands, and scrub is a biome defined by the World Wide Fund for Nature. The biome is generally characterized by dry summers and rainy winters, although in some areas rainfall may be uniform. Summers are typically hot in low-lying inland locations but can be cool near colder seas.
Slide 5 - Slide
Mediterranean forests found in areas – northeastern states, along the foothills of the Himalayas, Jharkhand, West Orissa and Chhattisgarh, and on the eastern slopes of the Western Ghats.
Slide 6 - Slide
Threat to Mediterranean Forests
1-Habitat loss and degradation, compounded by overfishing, pollution, climate change, eutrophication,. Pose the biggest threats to life in times and adaptation capacity of forests is exhausted.
Advantages of Mediterranean Forests
1-The forests of the Mediterranean region are essential to maintaining water and soil resources.
2-The forests protect watersheds and regulate the local climate by increasing the air humidity .
They are a barrier against desertification.

What is Mediterranean Forests?
Slide 8 - Open question
Write any one advantage of Mediterranean Forests.

Coniferous forests consist mostly of conifers, which are trees that grow needles instead of leaves and cones instead of flowers. Conifers tend to be evergreen—they bear needles all year long. These adaptations help conifers survive in areas that are very cold or dry.
Slide 10 - Slide
Structure of Coniferous Forests
Taiga is another name for Coniferous Forests, which means ‘ untouched’. They have tall, straight, and widely spaced evergreen trees. The trees of conical in shape with small, thick, and needle shaped leaves to protect them from snow. These forests have softwood trees that are light in weight ..

Mangrove forests:- They are found in swampy regions of deltas where the fresh water of the river mingles with saline water of the sea during high tides. Therefore, they are also known as Tidal Forests. Such forests are common in coastal regions of Japan, China, etc.
Indian Mangrove Forests:- In India, Mangrove forests are found in the Ganga-Brahmaputra Delta in West Bengal, the deltas of Mahanadi and Godavari on the east coast, and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. They are commonly found in Ganga-Brahmaputra Delta.

1) Types of roots and its uses- Some Mangrove trees have aerial roots that help them to breathe. Some stilt roots that help keep them above water.
2)Mangroves are almost exclusively tropical, but also occur in the subtropics. They do not tolerate frost, but can cope with air temperatures to 5°C.
Slide 17 - Slide
Specialties of Mangrove Forests
Mangroves are salt-tolerant trees, also called halophytes, and are adapted to live in harsh coastal conditions. They contain a complex salt filtration system and complex root system to cope with salt water immersion and wave. action.
Uses of Mangrove forests.
1-Mangrove Forests protect coastlines by preventing soil erosion.
2-They also serve as buffers against cyclones and tsunami, helping reducing their impact further inland.
Slide 18 - Slide
Where is Mangrove forests extensively found?
