The lndian Rhino, which is widely recognised to be the state animal of Assam has returned from the brink of extinction over the last century owing to a number of conservation success stories in Assam and Nepal.
The majestic animal which is widely recognised as a symbol of power and strength across the world has inspired popular imagination since time immemorial. However, in recent times the survival of the animal is under renewed threat due to continued poaching, habitat destruction and other anthropological pressures. The available literature on this species for the amateur naturalist is limited to coffee table books and there is limited literature available to provide detailed information in simple yet lucid language.
This book is an effort to present findings about the ecology and behaviour of the lndian Rhino in the floodplain habitat of Assam in a crisp but detailed package. The author hopes that the book will be useful for students, researchers, conservationists and the layman alike who are interested to know more about this majestic animal.
