  • Title
    Small carnivores of Parambikulam Tiger Reserve, southern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The first ever detailed study on the small carnivores of the Parambikulam Tiger Reserve (PkTR) in the southern Western Ghats, using camera trap techniques, reported 11 species. A total of 1,350 camera-trap nights were used for the study. This was supplemented with 242km of day transects and 344km of night transects using spot-lights. The small carnivores reported were the Small Indian Civet Viverricula indica, Common Palm Civet Paradoxurus hermaphroditus, Brown Palm Civet Paradoxurus jerdoni, Indian Grey Mongoose Herpestes edwardsii, Stripe-necked Mongoose Herpestes vitticollis, Brown Mongoose Herpestes fuscus, Ruddy Mongoose Herpestes smithii, Smooth-coated Otter Lutrogale perspicillata, Nilgiri Marten Martes gwatkinsii, Jungle Cat Felis chaus and Leopard Cat Prionailurus bengalensis. About 90% of the small carnivores captured in the camera traps in PKTR were members of the Viverridae family such as the Small Indian Civet (31.67%), Common Palm Civet (30%) and Brown Palm Civet (28.33%). The study recorded all the four species of mongoose known from the Western Ghats from PkTR. Two out of the 11 small carnivores belong to the ‘Vulnerable’ category on the IUCN Red List.

    Fungus among us: An exploration of fungi in the Anamalai hills.
    Type
    Book
    Description
    The rainforests of the Anamalai hills in the Western Ghats provide ideal conditions for the occurence of a wide diversity of remarkable fungi. This booklet presents a brief introduction to the rich diversity of fungi in the Anamalai hills, which we hope will encourage naturalists to observe this fascinating group in the field. The fungi are identified only to the Genus level and are grouped according to their macroscopic features with each group having a different colour code. In this booklet, we deal only with macrofungi (large fungi with visible fruiting bodies. ) CONTENTS About Fungi 1 Anatomy 2 Universal veil 3 Reproduction 4 Dispersal of spores 5 Interesting facts 6 Field identification 7 Cap and stem fungi 8 Jelly fungi 24 Coral and club fungi 30 Shelf and bracket fungi 34 Other fungi 46 References 55 Index 56 Photo credits 56 INDEX OF TAXA Agaricus Amanita Ascobolus Auricularia Bird’s nest fungi Bjerkandera Boletus Calocera Calyptella Clavaroid fungi Coprinus Cookeina Cordyceps Dacrymyces Filoboletus Fomitopsis Galerina Gymnopilus Hexagonia Hygrocybe Laetiporus Leucocoprinus Macrolepiota Marasmius Microporus Mycena Omphalotus Panaeolina Peziza Phallus Phillipsia Pleurocybella Pleurotus Puff balls Pycnoporus Schizophyllum Stereum Stropharia Trametes Tremella Xylaria
