Biodiversity Characterisation at Landscape Level in Western Ghats India using Satellite Remote Sensing and GIS

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"

Abstract:

This project is a pioneering effort to create geo-spatial database on vegetation cover types, disturbance regimes and biological richness. The spatial data have also been linked with the species database of Botanical Survey of India-Red Data Book and field sample data laid down in the different strata of vegetation. Attempts have also been made to overlay Botanical Survey of India-Red Data Book-species locations (as indicated habitats) on the maps generated in the present study.
