Disturbed shola forests of Kerala and strategies for its conservation and management


Disturbed shola forests of Kerala and strategies for its conservation and management



Shola forests of Kerala: environment and biodiversity: 395-437



This paper presents the results of a systematic analysis of vegetation structure and regeneration patterns as well as the socioeconomic dimensions of habitat degradation and restoration processes, in order to develop strategies for management and restoration of disturbed shola forests of Kerala, India. Four sholas (viz., Mannavan, Manthan, Pullaradi, and Aruvikkad) showing signs of disturbance were selected to study the causes and impact of disturbance.
