  Total Forest and Tree Cover rises to % of the total geographical area of India. In this article we have published the properties of the types of forests in india.   Different forest types have varying degrees of biodiversity. Tropical rain forests are some of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet. However, even temperate forests consisting of only a few overstory tree species may contain surprising levels of biodiversity when all other life forms found within them are considered (e.g.

Biodiversity preserves different cultures and spiritual heritage. Therefore, it is very important to conserve biodiversity. Biodiversity in India. India is one of the most diverse nations in the world. It ranks ninth in terms of plant species richness. Two of the world’s 25 biodiversity hotspots are found in India.

  Community forest management is one of the successful stories of green economy sectors in Nepal recognized by the United Nation Environment Programme. It was initiated in Nepal to mitigate increasing deforestation and forest degradation and address the negative impacts on rural livelihoods. Different studies are conducted by researchers to assess the role of community forest in biodiversity. The Team knows that empowering local communities to protect forests is key to maintaining biodiversity, a major foundation for human health, livelihoods, and well-being. There is no substitute for local knowledge, but sadly, the power of local communities and indigenous people is often constrained by lack of technical knowledge, experience, and.

It then outlines the approach adopted in this study of using a non-use value for biodiversity from an. The book is by Springer as a part of their Briefs in Ecology series, and likely to be of interest to students of ecology and sociology, conservation practitioners, scientists and officials managing forests and wildlife across Asia.

The book is expected to be available after 25 June India with % of the world’s ar ea, has % of the world’s total biodiversity with a species count of over 1,35, Some salient features of India’s biodiversity are as follow s.

In the wake of the COVID pandemic, as millions of migrants head home, without any promise of livelihood, India's forestry and biodiversity resources can offer a ray of hope. There are solutions and mechanisms in place, but they need to be implemented with conviction. JV Sharma, Director, Land Resources Division, TERI, explains.

This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development.

Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a systematic. India has tremendous biodiversity, genetic as well as of species and ecosystems. It contains over 7 per cent of the world’s biodiversity on per cent of the Earth’s surface.

This diversity can be at­tributed to the vast variety of landforms and cli­mates resulting in habitats ranging from tropical to temperate, and from alpine to desert.

India is recognized as one of the mega-diverse countries, rich in biodiversity and associated traditional knowledge. India has % of its geographical area under forest and tree cover.

With just % of the land area, India accounts for nearly 7% of the recorded species even while supporting almost 18% of the human population. Rarely, however, have such approaches been applied to tropical forest hotspots, which house the vast majority of plant and animal species.

Although biodiversity conservation is emphasized in policy circles in India, there has been little attempt to put an economic value to its benefits.

In this respect, the book under review is ground-breaking. THE ECONOMIC VALUE OF BIODIVERSITY Page 1 THE ECONOMIC VALUE OF BIODIVERSITY IUCN — THE WORLD CONSERVATION UNION Founded inThe World Conservation Union brings together States, government agencies and a diverse range of non-governmental organizations in a unique world partnership: over members in all, spread across some countries.

Four of 34 globally identified biodiversity hotspots: The Himalayas, the Western Ghats, the North-East, and the Nicobar Islands, can be found in India. India became a State Member of IUCN inthrough the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC).

The IUCN India Country Office was established in in New Delhi. Forests also support the majority of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. Although land conversion for agriculture and pastureland has historically resulted in fragmentation and declining forested areas, forests worldwide are now experiencing change at an unprecedented rate due to various anthropogenic activities and growing human populations.

Overall, human impacts reduced biodiversity in tropical forests, although the effect size varied by region, taxonomic group, metric and disturbance type ().The median effect size for all 2, ECOSYSTEMS AND BIODIVERSITY INDIA INITIATIVE */5&3*.

Biodiversity. The Biological Diversity Act was born out of India’s attempt to realise the objectives enshrined in the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) which recognizes the sovereign rights of states to use their own Biological Resources.

High conservation value forest (HCVF) is a Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) forest management designation used to describe those forests who meet criteria defined by the FSC Principles and Criteria of Forest Stewardship.

Specifically, high conservation value forests are those that possess one or more of the following attributes: forest areas containing globally, regionally or nationally.

Importance of Biodiversity The Biodiversity Crisis. Biologists estimate that species extinctions are currently – times the normal, or background, rate seen previously in Earth’s history.

The current high rates will cause a precipitous decline in the biodiversity of the planet in the next century or two. If you are a forest landowner, we encourage you to learn about the values your land has to offer, and to manage it to meet as many of your objectives as possible.

The following are benefits of maintaining biodiversity in our forest ecosystems: Economic. Species contribute many known and unknown values to forest. Besides wood forest, India has large amount of non wood forests. These non wood forests are the source of Latex, gum, aroma chemicals, medicines etc.

The forests of India are classified into following classes- 1)Tropical evergreen forests, 2)Himalayan Vegetation,3) Mangrove forests of coastal area, 4)Tropical Desiduous Forest or Monsoon forests.Combined these values give a relative biodiversity total, or score, for a given stand in a given forest.

The highest total scores possible are noted on the field forms. It is important to note that the Biodiversity Forest Assessment is a qualitative and relative.Diversity. There is insufficient information about the invertebrate and lower forms of India, with significant work having been done only in a few groups of insects, notably the butterflies, odonates, hymenoptera, the larger biodiversity have been made since the publication of The Fauna of British India, Including Ceylon and Burma series.
