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.
