    OK. No worries. In what context did you see it in? That is, would you have an example sentence for us to look at so that we can narrow down the meanings? There is more than one meaning for attribute, so let's make this as simple and easy as possible for you.

    Default Re: Meaning and Usage

    Attributed (adjective) means, caused by. The closures weren't caused by seasonal breeding or seasonal weather. They were closed because of them. So,

    Ex: Wildlife sanctuary closures are caused by / attributed to monsoon and animal breeding seasons.

    Ex: All wildlife sanctuaries are closed down because of monsoon and animal breeding seasons.

    ____________________
    Correction
    Let's say, not Les say.
    Monsoon, not mansoon.
