Ecological index Study
Ecological index is a quantitative measure of different types of species in a given community, habitat or any area. It also includes quantification of individual number of identified species in that area. Such assessments give more understanding about distribution of biodiversity in the defined landscape, how the ecosystem services are shared between humans and biodiversity and how the development projects should be designed to reduce the impacts and enhance the biodiversity in the area.
Study further helps in up grading the ‘Green Spaces’ so as to increase the overall diversity of the area. This will eventually help in maintaining the corridors as well as the ecological balance.
The need for continuous development is not denied, but conservation of existing natural habitats, corridors around us is also equally important and a part of our responsibility.
