Abstract:

Hopea genus is represented by timber yielding large trees, present in the evergreen and semi-evergreen forest. This genus comprises 104 species distributed globally among them 11 species are present in India of which eight are endemic to the Western Ghats. It was found that fragmentation of habitat; land cover change and overexploitation are the major driving factors responsible for the severe decline in their natural population. Most of the Dipterocarps, viz., H. erosa, H. Jacobi, and H. racophloea are only known from limited localities and their high degree of habitat specificity makes them rare. To device strategies for effective conservation of Hopea, information on its distribution, phenology, and ecology is very much essential.


Keywords: Hopea, Endemic, Western Ghats, Dipterocarps, Phenology, Ecology, Distribution, Effective conservation.
