Wildlife in Asia

Animal geographically, all of Asia is considered east of the Ural and north of the Himalayas to the Palarctic region. The rest of the continent makes up the Oriental region, except the southern part of Arabia, which is considered the Ethiopian region, and the easternmost islands of Indonesia, which belong to the Australian region. The Palarctic region has largely the same fauna as Europe. There are no impenetrable barriers between the two continents.

Wildlife in Asia

Among species of animals peculiar to this part of Asia may be mentioned the prsjevalskij horse - the only surviving wild horse - and the kelp kelp. In the north, especially on Kamchatka, there is a lot of bears. Other characteristic animals are sable, moths, roe, polar fox, wolf and reindeer. In steppe areas and highlands, wild yaks, gazelles, sheep and goats live. The camel still plays a certain role for the population.

The Oriental region is located in the tropical and subtropical area. In the northernmost regions there are also some elements from the Palarctic region. The most characteristic are the monkeys. Most species are found in Southeast Asia. the gibbon and orangutan that belong to Borneo and Sumatra. Among the predators, the tiger is one of the most characteristic animals. It is located in Northeast India, Myanmar, Thailand and on the Malay Peninsula. It is also found in Siberia, Male Jury and Korea. The largest land animals are Indian elephant, Indian horn and water buffalo.

Bird life is exceptionally rich in the Oriental region. The chicken birds include jungle roosters, many colorful pheasants and peacocks. Other distinctive bird families are icebergs, hornbills, woodpeckers, pittas (dragonflies), humpbacks and drongos. The colorful foliage and deciduous birds are found only in Asia's forests. Southwest Asia is often haunted by severe locusts. In southern Arabia, there are some animal species that are characteristic of the tropical part of Africa. antelopes, rock cuttings and cape baboon.In Sulawesi, Small Sundays and Maluku (Moluccas), a number of Australian species occur, including cousins (climbing molluscs), cashews and paradise birds.


The industry in Asia spans almost every degree of technical development. Part of it consists of a simple further processing of agricultural commodities or involves technically simple commodities that are manufactured almost in an artisanal way. Cigarette production in Bangladesh can be done, for example, by filling hand-rolled casings with spoonful of crumbled tobacco. Certain types of fabrication are really craftsmanship and highly labor intensive; for example, carpet weaving in Iran is performed on batches of hand-operated, hand-woven fabrics, often by children. At the same time, in Japan, there are some of the world's most advanced industries, which, for example, manufacture a substantial part of all electronic components (for computers, among others), almost without human labor.

The industry in Asia

A large part of the industry's production includes daily consumer goods (food, soap/detergents, textiles). These industries are found in almost every major urban area. In Asia, there is also a significant basic industry: Iron and steel for further processing are manufactured in many places, often based on local iron ore and coal deposits. In the basic industry, in many places fairly old-fashioned technology is used, for example in Russia, China and India, but South Korea and Japan have very modern blast furnaces and steel mills, which work almost exclusively with imported raw materials. In turn, they produce immensely economically and in large quantities; Japan's steel production and consumption is among the world's largest.

The countries with basic industries usually have a further processing metal industry such as shipyards, automobile factories and manufacturing of railway equipment and aircraft etc. Russia's Asian part, China and India all have a broad spectrum industry; they supply large home markets with everything from medicine to building materials, including electronics and industrial equipment. For countries in Middle East, the most import industry is oil, according to

Developments in both India and most recently in China have been strong. South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand are a group of countries that are working hard to develop industrial exports. Japan has had the greatest success with a commitment that began with ships and, for example, photo equipment (some of which were almost direct copies of known products). The trend has been towards ever more advanced products, efforts of larger capital equipment, highly trained personnel and research. Japan dominates the market in the photo, optics, electronics, radio, television, video recorders, computers, manufacturing of cars and motorcycles, etc., and through this effort has earned a very large surplus on its trade balance.
