Abstract:

This Investigation was undertaken in the wetlands farm of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore during Thaladi season to study the ecology of birds and insects in inorganic and organic rice ecosystem, with special reference to the species abundance, diversity, richness, evenness and similarity indices. This study revealed that organic cultivation supports bird diversity and beneficial insects. However, the bird menace during maturity stage is an issue to be managed in an ecofriendly way.
