in the world. The Sundarban covers approximately

Physical Location
  The Sundarban forest lies in the vast delta on
the Bay of Bengal formed by the super confluence
of the Ganges, Padma, Brahmaputra and Meghna
rivers across southern Bangladesh. Sundarban
features two ecoregions "Sundarban freshwater
swamp forests" (IM0162) and "Sundarban mangroves"
.

Flora Fauna
Sundarban has achieved its name from the Sundari
Trees. It is the most exquisite variety of tree
that are found in this area, a special kind of
Mangrove tree. It has specialised roots called
Pneumatophore which emerge above ground and help
in gaseous exchange i.e. respiration. During the
rainy season when the entire forest is water
logged, the spikes rising from the ground has
their peak in the air and helps in the
respiration process.
