    Eaglenest Wildlife Sanctuary flowers 2014
    Type
    Presentation
    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
    Diversity and distribution of Primula species in western Arunachal Pradesh, eastern Himalayan region, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The paper highlights the diversity, distribution and population status of Primula species in western Arunachal Pradesh. The present study has established the rich diversity of Primula species in western Arunachal Pradesh with a record total of 25 species, out of which five species, viz., Primula ioessa W.W.Sm., Primula munroi Lindley, Primula obliqua W.W.Sm., Primula prolifera Wall. and Primula jigmediana Hook. f. & Thomson ex Watt, are new to Arunachal Pradesh.  More than 60% of the taxa of Primula of the state occurs in two districts of the western part of the state.  A maximum diversity (76%) of Primula species was recorded between 3500m and 4000m and a minimum (4%) was between 1500m and 2000m.  This study showed the poor population of some Primula species in the study area.  Among the four sampling sites the Panga-Teng-Tso is highly disturbed which is clearly reflected by very poor population density of P. hookeri (1.36 individuals m-2). Various natural and anthropogenic threats have led to the pressure on the habitat of Primula species. Considering the rich species diversity of Primula and their distributional affinities, western Arunachal Pradesh may be considered as a centre of diversity of Indo-Chinese Primula species and appropriate conservation strategies should be adopted for the conservation of this genus.

  • Title
    On the female morphs, ecology and male genitalia of Callerebia dibangensis Roy (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae) recorded near Mayodia Pass in lower Dibang Valley, Arunachal Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Callerebia dibangensis was recently described from a single specimen collected in 1987 from Upper Dibang Valley, Arunachal Pradesh along with comparison of wing morphology of this single male individual with the congeners.  However, there is no other information on the species.  The current study recorded a large number of live individuals of such a species around Mayodia pass and was thus able to note the variations in wing morphology, the wing morphology of the female, distinguishing features between the sexes, observations on biology and ecology of C. dibangensis from Mayodia pass (1,900–2,265 m) in lower Dibang Valley, Arunachal Pradesh, India along with comparison of male genitalia of C. dibangensis with its closest ally C. scanda opima from the same locality.

  • Title
    On the present status of distribution and threats of high value medicinal plants in the higher altitude forests of the Indian eastern Himalaya
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The eastern Himalaya region is a rich repository of medicinal plants.  Excessive collection and unsustainable harvesting of medicinal plants from the wild are leading to a depletion of populations and threatening species in the region.  A study was conducted to explore the diversity, distribution and population status of selected medicinal plants species in the higher altitudes of Arunachal Pradesh, India through extensive field surveys and consultations with the local communities.  Out of about 75 medicinal plants recorded, 41 rare and commercially important medicinal plants were observed in the sub-temperate to alpine forest within an altitudinal range of 1500–4500 m.  Taxonomically these species fall under 25 families of higher plants, of which 31 are dicots, seven are monocots and three gymnosperms.  Many threatened species like Taxus wallichiana, Coptis teeta, Panax pseudoginseng, Panax sikkimensis were recorded in specific localities.  The western part of the state exhibits maximum species diversity.  Out of the various threats observed, improper harvesting, habitat loss and trade are found to be more destructive to the population.  Intensive efforts from both in situ and ex situ conservation practices are necessary for sustainable management and conservation of these species.

    A note on the high elevation distribution record of Red Panda Ailurus fulgens (Mammalia: Carnivora: Ailuridae) in Tawang District, Arunachal Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present record provides one of the highest documented presence information of red pandas in India, in remote parts of western Arunachal Pradesh. The record came in the form of carcass of a Red Panda which was accidentally caught in an animal snare in remote sub-alpine mountain slopes at 4325m above sea level inside a Community Conserved Area in Tawang District, discovered during a monitoring trip by the villagers. The record also showcases the rich biodiversity of the area and the local community’s efforts to safeguard it.

    Hunting record of endangered Marbled Cat Pardofelis marmorata in the Ziro Valley of Lower Subansiri, Arunachal Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    We document a hunting record of a rare felid, Marbled Cat Pardofelis marmorata in Hija Village at the Ziro Valley, Lower Subansiri District of Arunachal Pradesh. The ecological knowledge on marbled cats is limited in this part of the geographic range of this species. However, the threats like the hunting directly impact the marbled cat populations. Initiatives to study the impact of the hunting practices and assessing the sustainability of these hunting practices on this species are required.

  • Title
    Moth diversity of Tawang District, Arunachal Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    This paper documents results of an expedition to Tawang district (Arunachal Pradesh) by the Zoological Survey of India, during the period 27th September 2009 to 15th October 2009. Field camps were established at two places i.e. Lumla and Zemmethang. From these two camps, collections of moths were made at various localities by installing light traps. During the survey, more than 250 morpho-species were collected, of which 102 species pertaining to 15 families were identified. The analysis of the fauna revealed that the moth fauna of the area is dominated by the family Geometridae, followed by Arctiidae, Drepanidae, Crambidae, Lymantriidae, Noctuidae, Uraniidae, Lasiocampidae, Sphingidae, Pyralidae, Zygaenidae, Bombycidae, Saturniidae, Pantheidae and Notodontidae.
