  • Title
    Tree species diversity in the Eastern Ghats of northern Andhra Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present study was conducted to analyze tree species diversity in the tropical forests of the Eastern Ghats of northern Andhra Pradesh, India.  A total of 270 species of trees (≥15cm girth at breast height) pertaining to 177 genera belonging to 55 families were recorded.  Among the 270 species, 141 species were observed to be common, 78 were occasional and 51 species were rare in the study area.  Fabaceae was the dominant family with 33 species followed by Rubiaceae with 15 species and Malvaceae, Moraceae and Phyllanthaceae with 13 species each.  The genera with the highest number of species include Ficus (12 species), Diospyros (8 species), Albizia and Grewia (6 species each), Acacia and Bauhinia (5 species each).  Forty-five percent of the species were indigenous. This illustrates the diversity of the tree species in the studied area of the Eastern Ghats and also emphasizes the need for their conservation.

    Tree additions to the flora of East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    East Godavari district is one of the biodiversity rich areas in Andhra Pradesh. Floral explorations were conducted between 2008 and 2011 and recorded 16 tree species as new records of the forest flora of East Godavari District. Of these, three trees Albizia thompsoni Brandis, Lasiococca comberi Haines and Nothopegia heyneana (Hook. f.) Gamble  are significant as their occurrence is restricted only to a few states in India. A brief description, distribution, and phenology are provided for these species.

  • Title
    Avifaunal diversity of Manjeera Wildlife Sanctuary, Andhra Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    A total of 164 bird species belonging to 53 families were recorded in the Manjeera Wildlife Sanctuary. Of these 107 species were resident, 55 species were winter migrants and 2 species were summer migrants. The population of the each species in different habitats was estimated. Species richness was observed to be more in agriculture habitat followed by scrubland, grassland and marshy areas, whereas species diversity was observed to be more in scrubland habitat followed by agriculture lands, grasslands and marshy areas. Similarity Index analysis showed that the habitats of agriculture land-scrubland are more similar whereas, habitats of scrubland-marshy area show dissimilarity in the sanctuary.

  • Title
    On the identity and occurrence of Ophioglossum costatum (Pteridophyta: Ophioglossaceae) in Andhra Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Ophioglossum costatum (Ophioglossaceae) was collected for the first time from Telangana region and reported it as an addition to the fern flora of Andhra Pradesh, India. Ophioglossum costatum is a widespread pantropical species though not collected often owing to its distribution in small, undisturbed specific habitats, ephemeral nature (seasonality: monsoonal appearance) and misidentification with O. nudicaule in the herbarium (dugout and mounted specimens). The study stresses the significance of field characters for the correct identification of these rhizomatous geophytic cryptogams and brings out the differences between Ophioglossum costatum and O. nudicaule.
