    Presentation
    Description
    Kas plateau which is a Rock Outcrop in the Dist Satara of Maharashtra state, is under severe threat because of excessive uncontrolled tourism. It is a World Heritage Site and a Biodiversity Hotspot. It has some endemic species which are found nowhere else. I tried to do an year-round photo-documentation during 2014-2015 of its flora and fauna. Once untouched pristine beauty of this region has become a tourist attraction and everything coming under that. This pdf contains special features of this plateau.

    Journal Article
    Description
    Mahabaleshwar Panchgani Ecosensitive Zone located in the Northern Western Ghats of India is well known for its rich biodiversity. Rocky plateaus of laterite are a prominent feature of this region along with a mosaic landscape of forest and shrub-savannah vegetation. A checklist of 129 lichen species reported from this region has been compiled based upon primary and secondary data. They are categorized as per forms and substrates. The need for further studies and protection of this rich lichen diversity is emphasized.
