This quantity provides a evaluate of terrestrial ecosystems in monsoon Asia and assesses attainable results of world switch at the constitution and serve as of wooded area ecosystems and suggestions routes to the worldwide carbon cycle.

Fluctuation in the mixed deciduous forests is markedly seen both in the tree canopies and on the forest floor. During the dry period, all trees shed their leaves and stop growth to prevent high water loss. The leaves turn from green to brown, yellow and red, and then drop to the ground in November at the beginning of the cool dry season. Grasses and herbs on the forest floor are dry out due to high heat and lack of water in soil. Forest fires commonly start from December and consume all dry leaves and dead grasses and herbs on the forest floor.
