Kanimozhi R and P Balasubramaniam
A scale measuring the attitude of tribal people towards bio-diversity conservation is developed. One hundred and two possible statements were prepared to assess the tribal people's attitude towards biodiversity conservation using the five-point continuum. The equal appearing interval method was used for developing the scale. The S-value and Q- value of each statement were found. The selected statements were tested with validity and reliability. The scale consists of ten statements with positive (7) and negative (3). Thus the final scale was developed to measure the attitude towards bio-diversity conservation of tribal people. This study was implemented among 182 tribal people to assess their level of attitude towards bio-diversity conservation. The results showed that most of the tribal people were found to be a highly favourable attitude towards biodiversity conservation.
