What is Natural Vegetation, and What Does It Mean?

Natural vegetation is one of nature’s gifts. They develop spontaneously as a result of climate factors: rainfall, soil, weather, and terrain all influence the varieties of natural vegetation. Vegetation includes cultivated crops and fruits, as well as orchards, but not wild vegetation.


Factors that influence NATURAL VEGETATION GROWTH include:


Terrain: The nature of the land influences the type of vegetation. The land is mostly utilised for farming if it is level and productive. If the ground is uneven, grassland and forests will grow on top of it.

Soil: Different types of soil are appropriate for various types of plant. Cactus and prickly shrubs thrive on sandy soil, whereas mangrove vegetation thrives in damp and swampy soil.


Temperature and humidity in the climate play a role in determining the kind and spread of vegetation.

– Evergreen forests thrive in high-temperature, high-humidity environments; thorny shrubs thrive in high-temperature, low-humidity environments.

Photoperiod (Daylight)

Photoperiod is determined by latitude, altitude, season, and day length. Because of the longer photoperiod, trees grow quicker in the summer.


If a location receives a lot of rain, it’s ideal for thick vegetation to thrive. Thorny shrubs, on the other hand, thrive in areas with little rainfall.

Types of Natural Vegetation in India:

(1) Tropical Evergreen Rain Forests, 

(2) Deciduous or Monsoon Forests, 

(3) Semi-Arid and Desert Vegetation,

(4) Tidal or Mangrove Forests, and 

(5) Mountain Forests 

The above are the many types of natural vegetation found in India.

  1. Tropical Evergreen Rain Forests: 
  1. Forests of the Deciduous or Monsoon type:
  1. Vegetation in Semi-deserts and Deserts:
  1. Tidal or Mangrove Forests: 
  1. Mountain Forests:
