Leading up to the National Moth Week on July 22, we interview some contributors of moth observations.Listen to the first podcast episode with Nagesh O. S. on the IBP blog.

Assessing biodiversity value of production landscape and non protected forests on sky islands by establishing occurrence of cryptic, threatened birds

Shola habitat on any large sky island is fragmented and disconnected by the formation of commercial plantations almost a century ago. This production landscape now hosts remnant forest patches that are reported to harbour many threatened, endemic birds. We propose to investigate how species use such patches and provide species lists to private land-holders to increase awareness and value of their landscape http://www.skyisland.in/Song.html

Project Report
Identification of critical crossing points of animals along the road in and around Anamalai Tiger Reserve and to suggest relevant mitigation measures to minimize road mortality.

Increasing tourism in the Anamalai hills have resulted in the death of endangered fauna such as Lion-tailed macaque, leopard cat, slender loris, and several other birds, endemic reptiles and amphibians by the fast plying vehicles. This study is designed to identify mitigation measures and implement them to reduce the road mortality of these species, besides contributing to the knowledge on the effects of traffic and road construction on forest animal movements.

Investigating congruence between biodiversity and ecosystem services across production landscapes in the Mysore-Nilgiri landscape corridor in the Western Ghats
Assess patterns of and congruence between biodiversity (birds) and ecosystem services (carbon storage) across a heterogeneous human-dominated landscape outside protected areas, in Kodagu. Besides documenting impacts on ecosystem services by land-use intensification for increased economic returns, this study will provide a quantitative understanding of biodiversity and economic aspects for planning private reserve models on private lands as well as state-supported models on public lands
