Flora and Fauna
The land in the district is too fertile to be left for wild growth. The district is devoid of any
forest wealth of consequencies. The alluvial tract of land yields rice, sugar-cane and other
foodgrains. The area under cultivation is studded with mango orchards and bamboo clumps.
In the fields adjoining the Ganges weeds such as ammannia, utricularia, hygrophile
and sesbania grow. But palmyra and date palm, and mango orchards are found
near habitations. Dry shrub jungles are sometimes seen in the villages away from the rivers.
Trees commonly met with are bel, neem, siris, jack-fruit and the red cotton tree.
Leopard, hyena, jackal, fox and wild cat are some of the carnivore found in the district, but their number is very small.
Sometimes dolphins could also be seen in the river ganges.
