FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. What is the climate and vegetation of India?

Ans: India has a diverse spectrum of natural plants due to its diverse climatic conditions. The tropical evergreen forest, tropical deciduous forest, thorny bushes, mountain vegetation, and mangrove forests are the five types of vegetation found in India. The climate of the Indian subcontinent is of diverse nature and is characterized by a wide range of meteorological conditions occupying a large geographic area and is also characterized by varying topography, making generalizations difficult. South India's climate is usually hotter and more humid than North India's.

Q2. What type of climate is there in India?

Ans: As a result of India's large geographic area and diverse topography, generalizations about the country's climate are impossible. In general, the climate in South India is warmer and more humid when compared to the climate in North India. The majority of India is subtropical, which implies scorching summers, humid rainy seasons, and moderate winters. Summers are pleasant and winters are chilly in the hilly regions. Between June and August, the monsoons hit the majority of India. For detailed notes on Chapter 8 of Class 6 Geography, visit Vedantu website or mobile app and download the notes free of cost.

Q3. What is natural vegetation? Give some examples of vegetation from Chapter 8 of Class 6 Geography?

Ans: The term "natural vegetation" refers to plants that have not been cultivated by humans. Temperature and moisture play a role in plant development. It also depends on parameters such as slope and soil thickness. It refers to grasses, bushes, and trees that develop naturally without human intervention or assistance. Other commercially significant species include bamboos, sal, shisham, sandalwood, khair, kusum, arjun, and mulberry. The reduction in temperature with increasing altitude causes a shift in natural vegetation in mountainous locations.

Q5. What are the factors that affect the climate of India?

Ans: The climate of India is influenced by variables like latitude, altitude, pressure, and winds. From the Rann of Kuchchh in the west to Mizoram in the east, the Tropic of Cancer runs through the nation. India is located in the north-eastern hemisphere. Similarly, adverse effects of the modern world are also evident. The greenhouse effect is one of the major reasons behind climate change. Some gases present in the atmosphere of the Earth function like greenhouse glass, trapping the sun's heat energy and also preventing it from escaping into space, resulting in global warming.
