Climate and habitat
Habitat: tropical/subtropical dry broadleaf forest
Substrate: ground surface
Disturbance: grazing, selective logging
MAP: 2025.0
Habitat comments: "moist deciduous forests... dominated by late successional Shorea robusta (Sal)... a humid tropical monsoon climate... anthropogenic pressures on these forests are increasing in the form of expanding habitation, illegal harvesting, lopping, grazing, forest fires, tourism, and industrial expansion"
