    Description
    Eaglenest or Eagle's Nest Wildlife Sanctuaryis aprotected area of Indiain theHimalayan foothillsofWest Kameng District,Arunachal Pradesh. It conjoinsSessa Orchid Sanctuaryto the northeast andPakhui Tiger Reserveacross theKameng riverto the east. Altitude ranges extremely from 500 metres (1,640ft) to 3,250 metres (10,663ft). See:Map 1,Topo mapIt is a part of theKameng Elephant Reserve. Eaglenest is notable as a primebirdingsite due to the extraordinary variety, numbers and accessibility of bird species there. Eaglenest derives its name fromRed Eagle Divisionof theIndian armywhich was posted in the area in the 1950s. Eaglenest is part of the Kameng protected area complex (KPAC), the largest contiguous closed-canopy forest tract of Arunachal Pradesh, which includes Eaglenest, Pakke, Sessa, Nameri, and Sonai Rupai sanctuaries and associated reserved forest blocks. The complex covers 3500km² in area and ranges from 100 metres (328ft) to 3,300 metres (10,827ft) in altitude. Eaglenest is within theConservation InternationalHimalayaBiodiversity Hotspotarea. As a camper I visited this sanctuary organised by Insearch along with other 20 nature enthusiasts, during April 2014. I was there for two nights and one day. We were guided by Rohan Pandit who was working on altitudinal migration of birds under Ramana Atreya. That day, it was foggy and misty. So, we could not see insects - butterflies. We could hardly see birds. However, I was happy to see flowers which are unique to this land and altitude and season. It was spring and was very cold for me. The whole experience was unforgettable.

  • Title
    Towards a Global Tree Assessment
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Although trees have high economic, cultural and ecological value, increasing numbers of species are potentially at risk of extinction because of forest loss and degradation as a result of human activities, including overharvesting, fire and grazing. Emerging threats include climate change and its interaction with the spread of pests and diseases. The impact of such threats on the conservation status of trees is poorly understood. Here we highlight the need to conduct a comprehensive conservation assessment of the world’s tree species, building on previous assessments undertaken for the IUCN Red List. We suggest that recent developments in plant systematics, online databases, remote sensing data and associated analytical tools offer an unprecedented opportunity to conduct such an assessment. We provide an overview of how a Global Tree Assessment could be achieved in practice, through participative, openaccess approaches to data sharing and evaluation. Keywords Biodiversity, conservation, extinction risk, flora, forest, Red List, threat, tree

    Type
    Proposal
    Description
    Open Science and Open Data: How to Do It in ICAR/NARS? To attempt this, we are proposing a project one phenology of horticulture fruit tree species and agroforestry tree species. This proposed project would be a Pan India project with people from ICAR/NARS institutes and other institutes. And would intended to study the phenology of trees under changing climate and develop database with location specific datasets for public access under CC-BY.

    Arborescent Angiosperms of Mundanthurai Range in the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR) of the southern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Report
    Description
    Abstract: The present study was carried out to document the diversity of arborescent angiosperm taxa of MundanthuraiRange in the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR) of the southern Western Ghats in India. During the floristicsurvey carried out from January 2008 to December 2010, a total of 247 species and intraspecific taxa of trees and shrubsrepresenting 175 genera in 65 families were recorded. The most speciose families are Euphorbiaceae (27 spp.), Rubiaceae (17 spp.), Myrtaceae (14 spp.), Lauraceae (13 spp.) and Annonaceae (11 spp.). Of the 247 taxa, 27 species are endemic only to this region which includes Agasthiyamalaia pauciflora, Elaeocarpus venustus, Garcinia travancorica, Gluta travancorica, Goniothalamus rhynchantherus, Homalium travancoricum, Homaium jainii, Orophea uniflora, Phlogacanthus albiflorus, Polyalthia shendurunii, Symplocos macrocarpa and Symplocos sessilis. This clearly signifies that this range is relevant to the conservation of the local flora.

    A Phytochemical, Ethnomedicinal And Pharmacological Review Of Genus Dipterocarpus
    Type
    Report
    Description
    Dipterocarpus are the third largest and most diverse genus among Dipterocarpaceae. They are well-known for timber, but less acknowledged for its medicinal importance. Phytochemically genus Dipterocarpus has reported to contain resin, coumarin and dammar. The Resveratrol class of compounds is one of the major chemical constituent in this genus. Generally, the bark of Dipterocarpus is presumed to be the most active. Dipterocarpus species showed Anti-AIDS, cytotoxic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant activities. Therapeutically important species in this genus are Dipterocarpus obtusifolius Teijsm ex Miq because it may have cured against AIDS. We document number of species in this genus, their synonyms, distribution around the World, traditional names, ethnomedicinal uses, isolated compounds, chemical structure, chemical nature of isolated compounds, pharmacological reports and explain the relationship between isolated compounds from this genus and their therapeutic use.
