In 1992, around 7,43,534 km2 of land in the country was under forests and 92 percent of that belonged to the government. Only 22.7 percent was forested compared to the recommended 33 percent by the National Forest Policy Resolution (1952). The majority of it is broad-leaved deciduous trees that comprise one-sixth sal and one-tenth teak. Coniferous types are found in the northern high altitude regions and comprise pines, junipers, and deodars.

There are 350 species of mammals, 375 reptiles, 130 amphibians, 20,000 insects, 19000 fish, and 1200 species of birds in India. The Asiatic lion, Bengal tiger, and leopard are the main predators; the country has the most species of cats than any other. Elephants, the Indian Rhinoceros, and eight species of deer are also found.

There are over 17000 species of flowering plants in India, which account for six percent of the total plant species in the world. India comprises seven percent of the world's flora. A wide range of climatic conditions in India gave rise to a rich variety of flora. India covers more than 45,000 species of flora, out of which several are endemic to the region. India is divided into eight main floristic regions: North-Western Himalayas, Eastern Himalayas, Assam, Indus plain, Ganga plain, the Deccan, the Malabar, and the Andamans.
