    Range extension and larval habitat of Lyriothemis tricolour Ris, 1919 (Odonata: Anisoptera: Libellulidae) from southern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Worldwide many species of odonates are known to use phytotelmata as a breeding habitat. Hitherto, no species are known to breed in phytotelmata in India. However, field studies conducted in the southern Western Ghats revealed that Lyriothemis tricolor Ris, 1919 (Libellulidae) uses tree holes as a larval habitat. Here we report the range extension of L. tricolor to southern Western Ghats and describe morphology of the larva, exuvia, and adult female. Based on the present study, we describe the larval habitat of L. tricolor in the southern Western Ghats. Our findings reveal that L. tricolor breeds in the tree holes of evergreen and semi-evergreen forests in the southern Western Ghats.

    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.

    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Raorchestes travancoricusis a rare and endemic rhacophorid from southern Western Ghats. The frogwas listed in the Extinct category of the IUCN Red List until June 2015,even after its rediscovery in 2004. In June 2015, theR. travancoricuswas reassessed to Endangered category. All published reports of the species are restricted to disturbed habitats outside protected areas and the current study report the presence of the species from eight different localities from a protected area the Periyar Tiger Reserve.
