DescriptionThis volume presents findings on, and implications for, wildlife conservation in the tropical forests in Garo Hills of Meghalaya state in the North East India. A companion volume presented the findings on forest fragmentation due to practice of slash and burn agriculture in the region. Both of the volumes summarize work completed over more than a decade on characterizing conditions of tropical forests in the Garo Hills of western Meghalaya State of North East India. The work has led to innovations in use of remote sensing information and tools and to suggestions for designing a protected area network for wildlife conservation planning in the region. This volume is a synthesis and compilation of findings on wildlife habitats and conservation in fragmented tropical forests, from a long-term (1996-2012) research and application project initially entitled "Management of Forests in India for Biological Diversity and Forest Productivity - A New Perspective."
