Discuss the mechanism of Monsoon? Answer:Low Pressure conditions over the Northern plains intensifies by the beginning of June. It attracts the trade winds From southern hemisphere.

What is the difference between Deciduous and Evergreen Trees?

• Opposite of deciduous is known as evergreen where foliage persist throughout the entire year.

• Deciduous trees are adapted to tolerate the cold and dry weather conditions by shedding their leaves seasonally, whereas evergreens do not.

• Evergreens can survive under low nutrient levels in the soil. But a huge portion of internal nutrients is removed during the defoliation in deciduous trees.

• Nutrient requirement of evergreens is somewhat high during bad weather conditions due to need of the foliage maintenance. But in the case of deciduous plants it is high after the harsh time because of renewal of the foliage.

• Deciduous plants are more sensitive to changes in temperature and rain fall than evergreen plants.

 Anevergreen forest is a forest consisting entirely or mainly of evergreen trees that retain green foliage all year round. Such forests reign the tropics primarily as broadleaf evergreens, and in temperate and boreal latitudes primarily as coniferous 

he word "Deciduous" means "falling off or out at a certain season". That explains why deciduous forestmeans a forest in which the leaves fall off the trees when the winter comes. The deciduous forests are located in the temperate zone above the tropicalforests and below the coniferous forests.
