This is termed as a virgin vegetation. Our country India is one of the twelve mega bio-diversity countries of the world. With about 47,000 plant species India occupies tenth place in the world and fourth in Asia in plant diversity. There are about 15,000 flowering plants in India which account for 6 per cent in the world’s total number of flowering plants. The country has many non-flowering plants such as ferns, algae and fungi. INTRODUCTIONPowerPoint Presentation: FACTORS ON WHICH THE VEGETATION DEPENDS ON?
