Land

The climate of Thailand produces two types of forests, deciduous and evergreen. The lesser forests are deciduous, which, as in other regions, shed their leaves seasonally. These less common deciduous forests are scattered throughout the west, central and northern areas.

The myriad of evergreen forests, usually located in wet zones, are much more prevalent, completely covering the southern region, including the mountains, plains, valleys and coastal regions alike.

The evergreen forests of Thailand can be separated into numerous sub-types, but are primarily divided among dry and wet. The Wet (aka Tropical) forests collectively make up one of the most bio-diverse areas world-wide. They are truly one of the most impressive, complex arrays of plant and animal species to be found on our planet Earth.
