Biodiversity characterisation at landscape level in Andaman & Nicobar islands using satellite remote sensing and GIS

Andaman and Nicobar Islands are one of the most diverse but fragile Island landscapes where developmental activities have caused serious implications, resulting in loss of habitat and subsequent extinction of species. This study seeks to identify areas with various levels of biological richness using appropriate satellite remote sensing data, human dimensions, biophysical conditions, comprehensive ground data and knowledge base.
