About this book

Language: English

Information on the diversity and distribution of faunal resources at habitat, local and regional scale is the key to biodiversity conservation. Thus, survey, collection and inventorisation of faunal resources becomes imperative to generate baseline data on genetics, species and their macro- and microhabitat in ecosystem diversity. A local database generated this way helps in developing a regional / national database on biodiversity, which in turn facilitates the compilation of information on distributional patterns of faunal wealth. Furthermore, it also lends a hand in developing models for conservation strategies of endemic and threatened fauna. Since conservation of the entire range of species is neither practical nor possible, such preliminary studies help in identifying the keystone and umbrella species. The protection and conservation of such species ensures the survival of all the species as well in the area. In view of this, this book reports the outcome of an inventorisation of the faunal resources of Chandoli Wildlife Sanctuary (now National Park) which was undertaken by scientists of the Western Regional Centre, Zoological Survey of India, Pune, during the period 2007-2010 as part of a series on faunal resources of Protected Areas.
