Though Myanmar is in the Asian tsunamis area, its geographical location and terrain are changing its climat. Central Asia's cool breezes provide snows in the north of the country for two month a year, but this face keeps the cool skies from drifting further southward, so Myanmar is mainly affected by thunderstorm.
However, most of the rainfall comes from the south-west rocks. There are three distinct periods: the cold, relatively arid north-east moon (late October to midFebruary ), the warm, arid inter-monsoon period (mid-February to mid-May) and the wet south-west moon (mid-May to end-October). Coastline areas and the mountain range to the west and southeast have more than 5,000 mm of rainfall per year, while the deltas have about 2,500 mm (100 inches).
Rainfall is decreasing slowly northwards until it is only 500 to 1,000 mm per year in the arid area. Shan plateau, because of its height, normally gets between 75 and 80 inch (1,900 and 2,000 mm) a year. Altitude and proximity to the ocean also influence the temperature.
Though Myanmar is generally a tropic nation, the temperature is not evenly high all year round. Day-to-day temperature ranges are wider than in almost all other parts of Southeast Asia, but no place has a continuous temperature (i.e. a temperature that varies greatly from season to season).
Mandalay, in the middle of the arid area, has some of the largest temperature areas per day, covering about 12°C (22°F) per year. However, in a wider sense, the mean daytime temperature varies only slightly between Sittwe (Akyab) in the Rakhine area, Yangon near the shore and Mandalay in the north of the main pool.
In Lashio, on the Shan Plateau, the daytime temperature is slightly colder on a mean around 22°C (71°F). Approximately half of Myanmar is officially estimated to still be wooded (depending on altitude and rainfall) even after hundreds of years of growing paddy crops, but effective cover may be lower.
Oaks and pines are found in a height of more than 900 meters. Rhododendron woods are located in the north of the mountain, above 1,800m. Rainforest from hard-wood tree species is found in areas where more than 2,000 mm of precipitation falls each year. Areas where precipitation is between 40 and 80 inch (1,000 and 2,000 mm) are home to broad-leaved tropical-blue forest whose foliage is lost during the year.
With less than 40 inch precipitation, the woods open slowly in bushland. Myanmar has no real grassland, but there are areas where bamboos, fern and rough grassland are grown where the wood has been cut down and then forsaken. The Irrawaddy and Sittang contain tide woods of mangroves that can reach a height of 30m. They provide wood and rind for tan.
Myanmar's jungle is home to a rich bird life, which includes pheasant, parrot, peacock and other game birds and moorhens. The bear can be found in rolling areas, and the denser parts of the forest are inhabited by different types of givbons and ape. Tortoises can be found in the coastline, and there are eatable species in every water.
Burma is a land of great ethnical variety. It concentrates in the Irrawaddy River Valley and the coastline, with an unspoilt home in the middle arid area. They are the second biggest ethnical group in Myanmar with about a 10th of the people. It can be found in the delta under the Burmese, in the Bago Mountains and on both sides of the lower Salween River.
Kayah, who are living on the south side of the Shan Plateau, were once known as the Karen or Karenni, apparently because of their scarlet outfits. Shan of the Shan Plateau have little ethno-linguistic allegiance to the Burmese, and although they have been ruled by monarchs in history, their societies have been less complex than those of the plain people.
Shan are a small but significant part of the country's people. Irrawaddy and Sittang Delta were once populated by the Mon, who probably came to the land from their empires in the Chao Phraya River valley in Thailand more than two thousand years ago. In the Sittang Valley and the Tenasserim there are still a considerable number of people who still call themselves Mon, but have almost invisibly integrated into Burmese civilization and no longer speaking their native languages.
Many small communities, most of which live in the highlands, together make up about one-fifth of Myanmar's people. There are several groups known by the name of Chin in the Chindwin River basin and in the west side of the hill. High Irrawaddy River Basin and the foothills to the north are populated by groups under the name of Kachin.
The Wa and the Palaung of the Shan Plateau, for example, are often combined with the wider - but ethically and linguisticly different - Shan population. Similarly, the Naga on the Myanmar side of the border with India are sometimes erroneously grouped with the chin and the Muhso (a Lahu people) in northeast Myanmar with the Kachin.
The Chinese represented a small but remarkable part of Myanmar's population in the early 21 st cent.
