  • The mammalian communities in coffee plantations around a protected area in the Western Ghats, India - ePrints@ATREE
    tropics In such a situation the species richness and abundance of animals in coffee plantations can be expected to be determined by their proximity to the forest reserve and characteristics of the local vegetation We tested this hypothesis with data on mammals excluding bats murids and insectivores collected from 15 coffee plantations around the Bhadra Wildlife Sanctuary in the Western Ghats mountain ranges in India between December 2005 and May 2006 We estimated mammal species richness and abundance from indirect evidence in belt transects and track plots and from sightings during night surveys We sampled the vegetation of the plantations from 36 plots of 5 m 5m in each estate Twenty eight species of mammals were recorded from 15 plantations The number of species recorded in individual estates ranged from 5 to 19 with an average of 11 8 Distance from the Sanctuary was the most important factor that negatively influenced species richness and the abundance of many species Local vegetation characteristics influenced only the abundance of some small species Coffee plantations can be a buffer around forest reserves and improve connectivity between them However increasing conversion of native shade into silver oak and hunting are two issues that must

  • Prioritisation of conservation areas in the Western Ghats, India - ePrints@ATREE
    Mantel s tests The surrogates were threatened and endemic plant and vertebrate species unfragmented forest areas dry forests sub regionally rare vegetation types and a remotely sensed surrogate for unique evergreen ecosystems At the scale of this analysis amphibian richness was most highly correlated with overall threatened and endemic species richness whereas mammals especially wide ranging species were better at capturing overall animal and habitat diversity There was a significant relationship between a remote sensing based habitat surrogate and endemic tree diversity and composition None of the taxa or habitats served as a complete surrogate for the others Sites were prioritised on the basis of their irreplaceability value using all five surrogates Two alternative reserve networks are presented one with minimal representation of surrogates and the second with 3 occurrences of each species and 25 of each habitat type These networks cover 8 and 29 of the region respectively Seventy percent of the completely irreplaceable sites are outside the current protected area network While the existing protected area network meets the minimal representation target for 88 of the species chosen in this study and all of the habitat surrogates it is not representative with regard to amphibians endemic tree species

    find that the densely populated villages located outside the park boundary are better connected to regional markets by road networks and are associated with greater deforestation rates and more forest fragmentation compared to the more isolated villages in the park interior The park itself however appears well protected in terms of forest cover and connectivity Instead of focusing on resettlement of forest villages forest protection needs may be better served

  • The Fire-Lantana Cycle Hypothesis in Indian Forests - ePrints@ATREE
    dependence on forests for a variety of resources but with shrinking forested areas forests are being subjected to more intensive use than before As a result fires are occurring more frequently today than at any time in the past This altered fire regime is probably qualitatively different from historical fire regimes in its impact on forests at multiple spatial scales Present day fires have possibly led to forest degradation increasing susceptibility to invasion by alien species such as lantana Lantana camara We hypothesise that there may be a positive feedback between present day fires and invasion by lantana leading to a fire lantana cycle that can have deleterious compositional and functional consequences for forest ecosystems and the commodities and services that society derives from them Despite the widespread nature of the problem we lack good empirical information on the effects of varying fire frequency and severity in Indian dry forests So also we lack a sound understanding of the mechanistic underpinnings of lantana s success and barriers to its control in Indian forests Without such information we have little hope of a way out of the fire lantana cycle Item Type Article Additional Information Copyrights of this article belong to
