Grassland and Shola Research and Restoration of the palni Hills

Evaluate the status and restore three high altitude patches of forest land in palni Hills, presently occupied by invasive monocultures of eucalyptus and wattle, with an objective to create habitat for native biodiversity, especially Nilgiri tahr, while exposing the hill communities to biodiversity conservation and restoration that can provide vital resources, and income. Project also aims to research and identify suitable pioneer native species that can replace invasive wattle

Project Report
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
