Answer :

a. Shrub and thorn forests are primarily found in the areas which receive an average annual rainfall of less than 75 cm with the long dry season.


b. In these forests, the trees follow a scattered pattern which means these forests are not dense. The leaves on trees are thick and small due to which the rate of evaporation is slowed down and their bark is thick and thorny.


c. Some of the important trees are Palms, Cacti, Babul, Khair, Khagri, Kajuri, Palas, and Acacia. These forests are found in the north western part of India mostly in semi-arid regions of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, and Western Haryana.


d. These forests are also found on the leeward sides of the Western Ghats which cover vast areas of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh.
