The difference between deciduous & evergreen forests are as follows:

Deciduous Forests: They receive less rainfall and are thin in nature. They shed their leaves at a particular time and so appears green at a particular period. They are also known as Monsoon Forests.

Evergreen Forests: They receive heavy rainfall. These forests are dense in nature and their trees shed the leaves at different times and so, always appears green. They are also known as Tropical Rain Forest.

 

Deciduos forest shell out their leaves in autumn season but evergreen trees does not shell out their leaves in any particular season and remains green throughout the year  

 

trees in evergreen forests do not shed their leaves simultaneously during any season of the year.

Deciduous forests are those in which thees shed their leaves in a particular season.

 

decidous forests are the forests in which the trees shed their leaves.

evergreen forests are the forests in which the trees do not shed their leaves throughout the year.

Evergreen forests

They are also called Tropical Rain forests.

They occur in the areas which receive heavy rainfall.

They are so dense that sunlight doesn't reach the ground.

Many species of trees are found here which shed their leaves at different times of the year.

Deciduous forests

They are also called monsoon forests.

In a large part of the country we have this type of forests

They are less dense.

They shed their leaves at different times times of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

Evergreen forests  Trees in these forests donot shed their leaves at a particular time.so they always appear green. they are very dense & sunlight doesnot reach the ground.trees in these forests are mahogany,ebony,rosewood

Deciduous forests trees in these forests shed their leaves at a particular time.they are not very dense . trees in these forests are sal,teak etc.

 

        Deciduous Forests: These forests shed their foliage during the dry season. They have an annualrainfall of 100 to 200 cm.

WHILE

Evergreen Forests: The foliage of these type of forests remain green throughout the year and receive rainfall upto 200 cm with 15 to 30 degree C.

 

deodous trees : are found in hot places to absorb the heat of the sun and can store water.

evergreen trees : are found in the equatorial regions.

 
  1. ever green fosest- These forests are found on both sides of equater beetween 10 north and 10 south latitudes.
  2. These forest,s are throughout the year.The trees are very tall.
  3.  The trees are very tall.

deciduous forest- These forests are found between 10 to 23 1/2north and  10south to 23 1/2 south

these trees shed their leaves in the dry season

These forest,s are medium in size

 

 

                                        DECIDUOS FOREST

Forests composed of deciduous species—ones that periodically shed their leaves—grow in well-watered parts of the temperate zone in which a long, warm growing season alternates with a cold winter. Precipitation, as either rain or snow, tends to fall throughout the year.

                                        EVERGREEN FOREST

In the middle latitudes, the prevailing winds carry moisture-laden air masses over the west coasts of the continents, which receive substantial rainfall in consequence. In much the same manner, the subtropical east coasts of the continents are kept wet by the trade winds. In these regions, the combination of ample precipitation and comparatively mild temperatures produces dense forests in which evergreen species, both broadleaf and coniferous, preponderate.

 

 

Some of these forests are sufficiently wet to be called rainforests. As in the more familiar rainforests of the tropics, many of the trees reach enormous size, and epiphytes are common. Because more light penetrates the canopy, however, the vegetation of the understorey and forest floor is better developed than in the tropics.
 

1. In deciduous forests, all the trees shed their leaves in the same season. So they look dead in some parts of the year while the evergreen forests, trees shed leaves in different seasons, so the forests always look green.

2. Deciduous forests get less rain and are thin or less dense WHILE the evergreen forests get more rain and are thich or dense

 

evergreen forest donot shed their leaves simultaneously in any season of the year

whereas decidious forest shed their leaves in a particular season to conserve loss of moisture through transpiration.

example of evergreen forest are-ebony,mahogony,rubber tree

example of decidious forest are-sal,teak,etc
