About this book

Language: English

Shola forests of Kerala belong to the broad category of tropical montana forests represented in the continents of Asia, Africa and America, During the last about one decade, a number of research studies on the Shola ecosystem have been carried at individual as well as institutional level. Present edited volume carries the outcome of those studies and those carried out earlier. Shola Forests of Kerala presents comprehensive scientific information on the physical and biological aspects of Shola forests under five thematic sections; General Introduction; Soil and Watercourses; Vegetation and Flora; Floristic Diversity; and Conservation and Management. The concluding chapter consolidates the findings of various studies and highlights the major gaps in knowledge pertaining to the forest type. Color Photographs, graphs, diagrams and references for further reading have been provided.
