Sh Tropical forests occur in a wide belt that surrounds the Earth along the equator and is interrupted only by oceans and mountains. The vegetation of tropical forests is very diverse, depends mainly on the amount of rainfall and the distribution of the season. In the case of abundant rainfall (more than 2000 mm) and their more or less uniform distribution develop wet tropical evergreen forests. Departing from the equator appear forests, in which humidification depends on the season: the rainy period is dry. This is a winter-green, variable-humid tropical forest with opal at the time of drought to the leaves. Then these forests are replaced by savannah forests. In Africa and South America, monsoon and equatorial forests are replaced by savanna forests from west to east. In even more arid climates, tree stands are leached, savanna forests are replaced by xerophilous barbed forests and thickets of shrubs.
