Correct Answer - Option 2 : Mangroves

The correct answer is Mangroves.

  • The Sundarbans is a cluster of low-lying islands in the Bay of Bengal, spread across India and Bangladesh, famous for its unique mangrove forests.
  • This active delta region is among the largest in the world, measuring about 40,000 sq km.
  • The Sundarbans are of universal importance for globally endangered species including the Royal Bengal Tiger, Ganges and Irawadi dolphins, estuarine crocodiles, and the critically endangered endemic river terrapin (Batagur Baska).
  • It is the only mangrove habitat in the world for Panthera tigris Tigris species.

  • Coniferous forest, vegetation composed primarily of cone-bearing needle-leaved or scale-leaved evergreen trees, found in areas that have long winters and moderate to high annual precipitation. 
  • A mangrove is a shrub or small tree that grows in coastal saline or brackish water. 
  • Grasslands occur in environments conducive to the growth of this plant cover but not to that of taller plants, particularly trees and shrubs.
  • A region is arid when it is characterized by a severe lack of available water, to the extent of hindering or preventing the growth and development of plant and animal life.
