  • New records of pteridophytes in Mount Matutum Protected Landscape, South
           Central Mindanao, Philippines with notes on its economic value and
           conservation status

    • Authors: Christine Dawn Galope-Obemio, Inocencio E. Buot Jr., Maria Celeste Banaticla-Hilario
      Pages: 22039 - 22057
      Abstract: New records on distribution of pteridophytes in Mount Matutum Protected Landscape were documented. The species list was accounted with reference to specimen collections from various herbaria posted in digital databases and reliable literature on pteridophyte flora. Results further showed 105 new records for MMPL and its vicinity-South Cotabato, Sarangani province and General Santos City. From these, seven were new records for South Central Mindanao Region (Region 12). About 19 families, 56 genera were represented – 41 were epiphytes, 10 lithophytes, and 45 soil inhabitants, the rest with dual habits – two (ground and lithophytic); seven (epiphytic and lithophytic). Moreover, 11 species were found to be threatened based on national list while local conservation assessment based on relative frequency noted 91 threatened species. A conservation plan for these valuable species in the protected landscape is also proposed to ensure sound intervention and sustainable environment for this plant group.

  • Some threatened woody plant species recorded from forests over limestone
           of the Philippines

    • Authors: Inocencio E. Buot; Jr., Marne G. Origenes, Ren Divien R. Obeña, Elaine Loreen C. Villanueva, Marjorie D. delos Angeles
      Pages: 22058 - 22079
      Abstract: This study was conducted to determine threatened woody plants in forests over limestone in Samar Natural Park (SINP), Guiuan Marine Resource Protected Landscapes and Seascapes (GMRPLS), and other areas in the Philippines, in order to design a strategic framework for sustainable conservation of threatened species. Combined fieldwork using standard vegetation techniques and comparative literature review were done. Results revealed a total of 196 woody plant species belonging to 48 families, with 60 (DAO 2017-11) and 182 (IUCN) threatened woody plant species in the forests over limestone. The top 10 important species noted include three Critically Endangered: Diospyros longiciliata Merr., Cynometra cebuensis Seidenschwarz, F., and Shorea astylosa Foxw; three Endangered: Cinnamomum cebuense Kosterm., Tectona philippinensis Benth. & Hook.f. and Vitex parviflora Juss.; and four Vulnerable species: Agathis philippinensis Warb., Aquilaria cumingiana (Decne) Ridley, Dipterocarpus gracilis Blume, and Shorea polysperma (Blanco) Merr. A framework for sustainable conservation has been designed to prevent the loss of these threatened botanical treasures.

  • Status of mangrove forest in Timaco Mangrove Swamp, Cotabato City,
           Philippines

    • Authors: Cherie Cano-Mangaoang, Zandra Caderon Amino, Baingan Brahim Mastur
      Pages: 22080 - 22085
      Abstract: Mangrove forests are important coastal ecosystem considering its various ecosystem services. This study was conducted to generate an updated list and the current abundance of mangrove species in Timaco Mangrove Swamp located in Cotabato City, Bangsamoro Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). Three sampling plots measuring 5 x 40 m were established in three identified sampling sites. Based on the result of the study, 15 species of mangroves were identified in Timaco Mangrove swamp. This number of species is higher compared to the previous study wherein 12 species were identified. With this number of species, seven species were considered new in the area, and five species were not recorded which were identified in the previous study. A total of 115 individuals were recorded in the present study which indicates a decrease of 79% compared to the previous study. Furthermore, the present study recorded two threatened species, namely, Aegiceras floridum (Near Threatened) and Avicennia rumphiana (Vulnerable). Continuous anthropogenic activities were observed in the sampling sites which can be attributed to population decrease. Thus, the need for immediate local conservation is recommended.

  • A comparative analysis of the past and present occurrences of some species
           of Paphiopedilum (Orchidaceae) in northeastern India using MaxEnt and
           GeoCAT

    • Authors: Debonina Dutta, Aparajita De
      Pages: 22086 - 22097
      Abstract: Members of the genus Paphiopedilum are well known for their long-lasting unique flowers. They are becoming rare due to over-collection and habitat loss because of human disturbances and deforestation. The present study aimed to compare the past and present occurrences of the genus Paphiopedilum in northeastern India using MaxEnt and GeoCAT. A historical occurrence model (HOM) was prepared using secondary data, and an actual occurrence model (AOM) was constructed with primary field data. The HOM and AOM revealed that bioclimatic factors, topography and precipitation play a significant role in the survival of Paphiopedilum populations in northeastern India in both the current and historical distributions. The other vital environmental variables were elevation (h_dem), mean diurnal range (bio_2), annual mean temperature (bio_1), temperature annual range (bio_5) and annual precipitation (bio_12). The results showed a sharp decline in the extent of occurrence and the area of occupancy of Paphiopedilum in the study area. The extent of occurrence and area of occupancy for HOM were 170,972 km2 and 18 km2. For the AOM, they were 125,315 km2 and 12 km2, respectively. The HOM model indicated that Paphiopedilum was earlier growing sporadically. On the other hand, the AOM result indicates that it is presently growing sparsely in isolated pockets that are more prone to extinction. Paphiopedilum can be conserved successfully using an integrative conservation approach, comprising ecological modeling techniques to search for additional locations, ex situ propagation techniques, and possible reintroduction in selected areas.

  • Foraging activity and breeding system of Avicennia officinalis L.
           (Avicenniaceae) in Kerala, India

    • Authors: K. Vinaya, C.F. Binoy
      Pages: 22098 - 22104
      Abstract: Field studies were carried out to assess the foraging activity and the breeding system of Avicennia officinalis L. in Chettuwa, Thrissur, India during the two flowering seasons of 2018–2019. A. officinalis, also known as the Indian mangrove is a common mangrove occupying the river banks of the Kerala coast of southern India. The plant blooms massively during the onset of the first summer showers. The flowering to fruiting period lasted from April to July. Bagging experiments revealed that A. officinalis preferred a mixed breeding system though they had a low fruit set recorded in self-pollination experiments. A total of 15 species of foraging insects belonging to three orders, Hymenoptera, Diptera, and Lepidoptera, were observed. The three most abundant insect foragers were Apis florea Fabr., Campsomeriella collaris Fabr., and Chrysomya megacephala Fabr. Among these, A. florea showed a significantly high visitation rate followed by C. collaris and then C. megacephala. C. collaris, however, had the highest and most significant handling time for Avicennia officinalis than A. florea. The peak foraging activity was recorded from 1000h to 1100h and from 1500h to 1700h. These findings emphasize the importance of insect flower visitors in the breeding of A. officinalis, highlighting the need to maintain the plant-pollinator relationships for the protection of mangrove ecosystems.

  • Diversity patterns and seasonality of hawkmoths (Lepidoptera: Sphingidae)
           from northern Western Ghats of Maharashtra, India

    • Authors: Aditi Sunil Shere-Kharwar, Sujata M. Magdum, G.D. Khedkar, Supriya Singh Gupta
      Pages: 22105 - 22117
      Abstract: As most of the biodiversity studies report the abundance and enlist the species, there is severe data deficiency in understanding the diversity patterns. The present study was designed to carry out periodic diversity assessments to understand the trends in diversity patterns of hawk moths. The study was carried out in the northern Western Ghats in Nashik district. Seven sampling stations were identified and periodic visits to these places were carried out over the span of five years (2011–2015). A total of 463 moths were recorded belonging to 18 species, represented by 10 genera. A new record from Western Ghat, Theretra sumatrensis (Joicey & Kaye 1917) is reported for the first time along with its DNA barcode. Six diversity indices (four alpha diversity indices and two beta diversity indices) were employed to understand the diversity dynamics. Whittaker’s plot was generated using the rank abundance suggesting high species evenness for all sampling stations. Maximum diversity was observed during Monsoon. Wani was the most diverse sampling station throughout the study period (Shannon’s Index = 2.7132±0.060; Simpson’s Index = 0.9273±0.006; Brillouin’s Index = 2.252±0.089; Fisher’s alpha = 10.9472±1.685). Beta diversity was assessed with the help of Dice’s coefficient and Jaccard’s similarity index. Hence, we recommend rigorous periodic diversity assessments to generate adequate information about diversity that expedites conservational strategies’ pace.

  • Population trends of Mugger Crocodile and human-crocodile interactions
           along the Savitri River at Mahad, Maharashtra, India

    • Authors: Utkarsha Manish Chavan, Manoj Ramakant Borkar
      Pages: 22118 - 22132
      Abstract: In this paper, we report monitoring of a resident population of Mugger Crocodile Crocodylus palustris (Lesson, 1831) along a stretch of 3.5 km of the river Savitri on the outskirts of Mahad town of Raigad District in Maharashtra, on monthly basis from 2014 to 2021. This river is increasingly becoming a sink of anthropogenic wastes emerging from adjacent settlements impacting its habitat value, and puts the reptile side by side with humans and human-wastes that could be a cause of rising incidents of crocodile mortality in the recent times here, as also reported from elsewhere. Savitri River has been a fishing ground for local indigenous communities, who also use the river bank for washing clothes and utensils, and for swimming. Such proximity between people and crocodiles creates a potential for negative interaction. This long term study monitored the Mugger population trends for the last eight years at four transect stretches along the river. Counts are suggestive of a healthy viable population of Mugger in this river currently, but a future conflict situation cannot be ruled out. Being generalist feeders, Muggers can sustain themselves on fish, and scavenge on dumped carrion and other anthropogenic organic wastes. With the exception of a few sporadic incidents of aggression by the Muggers at this location, no human casualties have been reported thus far, however, this does not rule out fatal reciprocal interactions in future and hence a few practical mitigation measures have been suggested.

  • Paresis as a limiting factor in the reproductive efficiency of a nesting
           colony of Lepidochelys olivacea (Eschscholtz, 1829) in La Escobilla beach,
           Oaxaca, Mexico

    • Authors: Alejandra Buenrostro-Silva, Jesús García-Grajales, Petra Sánchez-Nava, María de Lourdes Ruíz-Gómez
      Pages: 22133 - 22138
      Abstract: Rear flippers are crucial in the nesting process of Olive Ridley Turtles Lepidochelys olivacea, so any impact on them could constitute a limiting factor in reproductive efficiency. Muscle weakness of the rear legs has been observed in some nesting females on La Escobilla beach in Oaxaca state, Mexico; however, this disorder has not been sufficiently researched. The aim of this study was to identify and describe this problem in a nesting colony of L. olivacea in La Escobilla. We obtained the biochemical profiles of eight females with clinical signs of muscle weakness of the rear legs, that could not build the incubation chamber for their nest. In order to compare their blood characteristics, we selected eight seemingly healthy turtles that successfully built their nests, laid eggs through oviposition and covered the nest. We found no significant differences in most of the blood parameters, except for Creatinine-Kinase (CK). Female turtles with muscle weakness presented significantly higher concentrations of CK (t = 2.1448, d.f. = 2, P <0.0001) when compared to the healthy turtles. CK is an appropriate enzyme for identifying the integrity of the muscle cell and is a muscle damage indicator. Our hypothesis is that the paresis observed in the rear legs of the female turtles in La Escobilla could be a chronic debilitation caused by a gradual exposure to biotoxins such as saxitoxins.

  • Notes on the nesting and foraging behaviours of the Common Coot Fulica
           atra in the wetlands of Viluppuram District, Tamil Nadu, India

    • Authors: M. Pandian
      Pages: 22139 - 22147
      Abstract: The nesting and foraging behaviours of the Common Coot Fulica atra were studied in the wetlands of Viluppuram District, Tamil Nadu during the breeding season. A total of 4,054 individuals of Common Coot including 467 juveniles and 1,327 nests were enumerated. Of the 1,327 nests, 1,191 were built on Ipomoea carnea vegetation and 136 on open water. The birds used twigs of Ipomoea carnea and various parts of eight other plant species as nest material. The nests were elliptical in shape, with flattened upper surfaces containing nest cup and a ramp-like structure each. 49.96 % of nests were found within 50 m distance from the edge of wetlands. A total of 16 plant species were identified as food sources including five algal species, such as Aphanothece stagnina, Spirogyra irregularis, Chara flaccida, C. vulgaris, and C. zeylanica. The Common Coots maintained strict territory during the breeding season and no other water birds were observed in the vicinity of their nesting and foraging sites. Even after completion of the breeding season, sporadic nesting was observed by a few pairs till June 2022.

  • Population abundance and threats to Black-headed Ibis Threskiornis
           melanocephalus and Red-naped Ibis Pseudibis papillosa at study sites in
           Jhajjar district, Haryana, India

    • Authors: Anjali, Sarita Rana
      Pages: 22148 - 22155
      Abstract: The Black-headed Ibis and Red-naped Ibis are large wading birds of the order Pelecaniformes. This study documents abundance and threats affecting both species at Dighal, Gochhi, and Chhochhi villages located in Jhajjar district, Haryana, India. Field visits were made twice a month at each site from October 2020 to September 2021. Dighal had proportionately the largest populations of both species. Black-headed Ibis were most abundant in wetlands and Red-naped Ibis in agricultural areas. Populations of both species did not vary among seasons. Major threats observed included dumping of solid waste, fishing, growth of weeds, release of untreated sewage, collisions with transmission lines, grazers (e.g., cattle and goats), and stray dogs. The findings of this study suggest that despite having sizable populations near Dighal, both species face major threats and conservation efforts will require monitoring and management of ibis habitat.

  • Crop raiding and livestock predation by wildlife in Khaptad National Park,
           Nepal

    • Authors: Ashish Bashyal, Shyam Sharma, Narayan Koirala, Nischal Shrestha, Nischit Aryal, Bhupendra Prasad Yadav, Sandeep Shrestha
      Pages: 22156 - 22163
      Abstract: Crop raiding and livestock predation are major conservation problems throughout most protected areas in Nepal, including the Khaptad National Park (KNP). However, no information exists on the extent of crop raiding, livestock predation, and animal attacks among villages surrounding KNP. We conducted a survey of 304 households in 30 villages in four districts (Bajhang, Bajura, Doti, and Achham) in the buffer zone of KNP between 24 May and 20 June 2019, using the snowball sampling technique. All households experienced numerous major incidents of crop raiding between April 2017 and May 2019. Major wildlife involved were Wild Boar Sus scrofa, Himalayan Black Bear Ursus thibetanus, Rhesus Macaque Macaca mulatta, Barking Deer Muntiacus vaginalis, Common Leopard Panthera pardus, Golden Jackal Canis aureus, and Porcupine Hystrix spp. Of the 304 households, all had their crops raided over the past two years, 55.5% (n = 169) faced livestock predation, and 2% (n = 6) attacks resulting in death or injury. Over 40% of households reported taking mitigation measures to minimize crop raiding. Common measures such as night guarding, noise making, use of scarecrows, watch dogs, and fencing were practiced. More than half of respondents had negative opinions towards wildlife but they still believed that wildlife should be conserved. There was no or negligible correlation between general opinion of respondents towards wildlife and wildlife conservation with their education, sex, or involvement in natural resources management group. We established baseline information on crop raiding and livestock predation in villages surrounding KNP. Gathered information will be transmitted to relevant authorities to design and implement measures to mitigate such conflicts.

  • A new species of genus Neocerura Matsumura, 1929 (Notodontidae:
           Lepidoptera) from India

    • Authors: Amritpal Singh Kaleka, Rishi Kumar
      Pages: 22184 - 22189
      Abstract: A new species Neocerura convergata under the genus Neocerura Matsumura, 1929 has been described and illustrated. This species is closely related to N. liturata Walker, 1855 (type species) and completely conforms to the characterization of the genus. The wing maculation, larger size, and genitalic features make it distinct. The taxonomic account of N. liturata Walker, 1855 has also been included. The revival of the genus Neocerura Matsumura, 1929 has also been justified.

  • Camera trapping records confirm the presence of the elusive Spotted
           Linsang Prionodon pardicolor (Mammalia: Carnivora: Prionodontidae) in
           Murlen National Park (Mizoram, India)

    • Authors: Amit Kumar Bal, Anthony J. Giordano
      Pages: 22195 - 22200
      Abstract: The Spotted Linsang is an elusive and infrequently recorded small carnivore believed to be distributed widely throughout southern-southeastern Asia. Here, we present the first confirmation of this species from Murlen National Park, Mizoram, a protected area with tracts of subtropical evergreen forest less than 30 km from the western Myanmar border. These records are also the first to confirm the occurrence of the species in the southern portion of northeastern India. Although we could distinguish several individuals despite low camera-trap sampling effort, this population may be threatened by opportunistic and intentional hunting using projectiles and snares meant to kill small game for wildmeat.
