Here are entered works on forests consisting primarily of tall, broad-leaved evergreen trees located in areas of high annual rainfall chiefly, but not exclusively, in the tropics. Works on areas of luxuriant, impenetrable vegetation occurring where light penetrates along tracks or riverbanks in tropical areas or as second growth vegetation where tropical forests have been cleared are entered under Jungles.
