Dynamic events of a temporal transect A forest is undergoing dynamic changes constantly. Temporality in a forest refers to how time shapes the forest. It refers to phenomena involving soil, water, vegetation and biological processes such as seasonal deciduous tree leaf fall, growth of plants, movement of fauna, infestation and decay, etc. Any changing phenomenon has a significance on its setting and over a period of time, has an impact on its surrounding elements. Phulwari ki Naal is a semi-arid tropical dry deciduous forest with the Wakal river playing a vital role in it. I have studied one typical riparian transect across the ‘Five rock’ formation, observing the contrasting changes in the opposite banks and the impact of the dynamic floodplain on the same.
