Complete answer:
1. Tropical Evergreen Forest. These forests are very dense and are found in areas near the equator and are close to the tropics. These areas receive heavy rainfall throughout the year. These forest trees do not shed their leaves completely and hence they remain green all the time. Hardwood trees such as rosewood, ebony and mahogany are found here.
2. Tropical deciduous forest. These forests are found in areas that experience seasonal changes. In the dry season the trees shed the plants to conserve water. Trees like salwood, teak, neem and rosewood are found here. Animals like tiger, lion, elephant, langur and monkey are common in these forests.
3. Temperate evergreen forests. These precursors are commonly found along the eastern margin of the continents. These include both hard and soft trees. For example, oak, cedar, eucalyptus, etc.
