Abstract:
The region of South Gujarat is bestowed with rich ecosystem and floristic diversity equally supported by various tribes residing in the Eastern boundaries of Surat, Narmada, Valsad and Dangs district. Floristically, South Gujarat region harbours nearly 40% MAPs of Gujarat state, utilized by local inhabitants. Initiative has been taken up at Navsari Agricultural University to conserve rare and threatened MAP’s which are also used as NTFP’s. Biodiversity Conservation Centre has been set up, which has nearly 173 tree species that are conserved ex-situ. Few of the important NTFP’s conserved at Biodiversity Conservation Centre are Sterculia urens, Sterculia guttata, Bombax insigne, Terminalia arjuna, Mallotus phillipensis, Bauhinia malabarica, Buchanania cochinchinensis and Semecarpus anacardium. The present paper aims at providing the distribution patterns and conservation aspects of such rare and threatened tree species, which are also equally vital NTFP’s on which tribal livelihood depends to fairly large extent.
