Mizoram-Manipur-Kachin Rain Forests - Setting


The ecoregion is characterized by semi-evergreen rain forest, covering the lower elevations of the Chin Hills-Arakan Yoma in Burma's Arakan State and India's Manipur state and the adjacent Chittagong Hills of Bangladesh, then extending northwards along the Naga Hills and Mizo Hills to cover most of India's Nagaland and Mizoram states, and eastwards across Burma's Sagaing Division and Kachin State to the Burma-China border.

The Burma coastal rain forests occupy the coastal lowlands of Burma to the south and southwest. To the west, the ecoregion borders the Meghalaya subtropical forests in southeastern Assam, and the Brahmaputra Valley semi-evergreen forests in the Assamese lowlands. The Mizoram-Manipur-Kachin rain forests extend up to the 1,000 meter (3,300 ft) elevation of the Chin Hills-Arakan Yoma range, and the Chin Hills-Arakan Yoma montane forests occupy the portion of the range above 1,000 meters (3,300 ft). As the Mizoram-Manipur-Kachin forests extend east across Burma, they are bounded by the Irrawaddy moist deciduous forests of the Irrawaddy River basin to the south, and by the higher-elevation Northern Triangle subtropical forests to the north and the Northern Indochina subtropical forests to the east. The Northeast India-Burma pine forests occupy the higher elevations of the Naga Hills along the Nagaland-Burma border, and are surrounded by the Mizoram-Manipur-Kachin rain forests on the west, south and east.

Famous quotes containing the word setting:

    The new sound-sphere is global. It ripples at great speed across languages, ideologies, frontiers and races.... The economics of this musical esperanto is staggering. Rock and pop breed concentric worlds of fashion, setting and life-style. Popular music has brought with it sociologies of private and public manner, of group solidarity. The politics of Eden come loud.
    George Steiner (b. 1929)

    Like plowing, housework makes the ground ready for the germination of family life. The kids will not invite a teacher home if beer cans litter the living room. The family isn’t likely to have breakfast together if somebody didn’t remember to buy eggs, milk, or muffins. Housework maintains an orderly setting in which family life can flourish.
    Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)

    Only in the problem play is there any real drama, because drama is no mere setting up of the camera to nature: it is the presentation in parable of the conflict between Man’s will and his environment: in a word, of problem.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
