CMPA Technical Report Series No. 32. Floral Biodiversity Monitoring to Support the Management Planning at Khijadiya Wildlife Sanctuary and Gosabara Wetland Complex in Gujarat

The surveys of both the wetlands – Gosabara Wetland Complex in Porbandar and Khijadiya Bird Sanctuary in Jamnagar – were conducted during December 2016 to July 2017. The wetlands were studied based on the microhabitats classified in 2015-2016. Thus Gosabara and Khijadiya wetland were surveyed in six and four sub-habitats respectively. This study provides detailed insights into the species pattern and suggestive measures for managing the wetlands from the viewpoint of floral biodiversity conservation.
