keranga (heath forest) Forest-heath vegetation found in south-eastern Asia, the Amazon basin, and Guyana, and on a small area of the coast of Gabon, central Africa. It grows on siliceous, podzolic soils. Much of the nutrient supply for this dense vegetation is furnished by rainfall rather than by rock weathering.
