About this book

Language: English

This book focuses on sacred groves – the traditionally protected forest fragments and the past and present research efforts on this important community resource. The chapters presented in this book widely cover biological, social and economic status of the groves, threats arising out of various anthropogenic activities like overexploitation, developmental and mining activities and encroachments of various types, and strategies for their effective management. There are 7 chapters in the book, starting with background context and methods of field observation recording, followed by an overview of the sacred places, trees and groves. The remaining chapters describe the status of 123 sacred groves distributed throughout Rajasthan, India, biological diversity and invasions, soil characteristics and carbon status, livelihood and threats, and management strategies that accommodate the
desires of grove-dependent communities and involve the participation of local villagers in protecting and conserving these sacred groves.

The ultimate objective of this publication is to equip the readers with wide-ranging knowledge about sacred groves and to promote the enhancement of grove tree cover, and resilience and livelihoods of local populations, and to improve the environmental conditions of this degrading ecosystem for local, regional and global benefits. It could be useful to policymakers, forest managers, non-governmental organizations, extension agents, environmentalists, as well as researchers and academics, who are involved in developing, conserving and managing community resources for the benefit of local people.
