  • Measuring and Mapping Threats to a Wildlife Sanctuary in Southern India - ePrints@ATREE
    and socioeconomic attributes to assess the threats to a protected area a wildlife sanctuary in southern India Physical attributes included threats from major and minor roads and the accessibility of an area given as inverse of the slope of the area and socioeconomic attributes included the number of human settlements and human cattle and sheep populations We divided the sanctuary into 30 ha grids and for each grid we computed three threat categories 1 settlement associated threat from humans cattle and sheep 2 development associated threat resulting from major and minor roads and 3 accessibility related threat caused by the steepness of the terrain Combining all three threats we derived a composite threat index for each grid and mapped five levels of threats in the sanctuary We collected data on human activities tree species richness and diversity in the transects laid in areas corresponding to these five threat levels Although the threat levels of the transects were strongly correlated with the humanrelated disturbance activities the composite threat indices of the transects were negatively correlated with tree species richness indicating that the threat values we derived served as a good surrogate of the actual threat experienced by the sanctuary With appropriate

    and the human communities dependent upon them better face the challenges of the 21st century tropical biologists must provide critical knowledge in three areas 1 the structure and functioning of tropical ecosystems 2 the nature and magnitude of anthropogenic effects on tropical ecosystems and 3 the socio economic drivers of these anthropogenic effects To develop effective strategies for conservation restoration and sustainable management of tropical ecosystems scientific perspectives must be integrated with social necessities Three principles for guiding tropical biological research are suggested 1 broadening the set of concerns 2 integration of biological knowledge with the social sciences and traditional knowledge and 3 linking science to policy and action Four broad recommendations are proposed for immediate action in tropical biology and conservation that are fundamental to all biological and social disciplines in the tropics 1 assemble and disseminate information on life s diversity in the tropics 2 enhance tropical field stations and build a worldwide network to link them with tropical field biologists at their field sites 3 bring the field of tropical biology to the tropics by strengthening institutions in tropical countries through novel partnerships between tropical and temperate zone institutions and scientists and 4 create concrete mechanisms to

  • ELEVATIONAL SPECIES RICHNESS PATTERNS EMERGE FROM MULTIPLE LOCAL MECHANISMS IN HIMALAYAN WOODY PLANTS - ePrints@ATREE
    the elevational gradient in species richness Distribution data were compiled for 1100 species in the Western Himalaya and primary data comprising 123 species and 47 000 individuals were collected for a landscape Correlates of diversity were examined for the five spatial scales and for different biogeographic groups at the landscape scale The results indicate multiple mechanisms both within and across scales At the landscape scale though the mechanisms explaining unimodal species richness patterns were hard to separate the underlying correlates of biogeographic groups were more distinct temperate species richness followed mid domain model predictions and showed a nonlinear relationship with temperature whereas tropical species richness tracked temperature and area Simulations demonstrated that models with varying assumptions while resulting in monotonic unimodal or multimodal patterns at local scales could all lead to unimodal patterns at regional scales when multiple local replicates are aggregated with a peak in the major ecotone The turnover or successive accumulation of marginal species in ecotones potentially explains the mid elevational peak in this zone Landscape scale primary data on distribution and abundance could therefore be critical to understanding key aspects of macroecological patterns Item Type Article Additional Information copyright of this article belongs to the Ecological

  • Locating Local Elites in Negotiating Access to Forests: Havik Brahmins and the Colonial State 1860�1920 - ePrints@ATREE
    in History 20 2 pp 273 303 Preview Text Lele Saberwal Locating Local Elites In Negotiating Access to Forests Studies in History 2004 pdf Published Version Download 307Kb Preview Abstract This paper is an exploration of how colonial forest policy in Uttara Kannara district of present day Karnataka was critically shaped by the interests of the Havik Brahmin community Despite the protests of the forest department the Havik community was provided a remarkably generous forest settlement to enable their production of areca nut a high revenue earner for the revenue department We explore the contours of the debates of the time and the strategies deployed by these areca nut cultivators Ultimately as is illustrated here the forest department was able to enforce a restrictive conservation regime vis vis only certain sections of the population By highlighting the capability of certain elites in negotiating with the state we attempt to bolster the argument that colonial forest policy was neither excessively oppressive nor completely pliant in the face of local resistance Item Type Article Additional Information Copyrights of this article belongs to Sage publication Subjects C Publications by ATREEians G Journal Papers Divisions Publications by ATREEians Journal Papers Depositing User Ms Usha
