The forest in the foothills of the Shivaliks, evolves through the trails of dense forests to open forests, this entire stretch is dominated by Sal trees. The gregariousness of Sal forms the dynamics of forest which is always in transition and changing constantly. With the help of the spectral signature of Sal trees, the landscape patterns of the occurrence of Sal were decoded in terms of the light passing through the different typologies.Sal forests occur in association and consociation based on climatic conditions, Location and inter-specific exchanges. Shorea robusta (Sal) is the Charismatic tree of its bio-me  which grows in different characters in different conditions which further effects the other species in the forest.
