The Seshachalam Hills will be part of Eastern Ghats in Andhra Pradesh and are surrounded by Rayalaseema Uplands in the west and northwest as well as the Nandyala Area in the north. They are produced during Precambrian time (i. e. prior to about 540 million years age) and consists of sandstone, shale along with limestone. It is the richest floristic spot harbouring a large number of endemic and rare plants. This area continues to be famous for it is rich biodiversity, elegant environment, beautiful slope ranges and perennial channels and water falls since times immemorial. This area is definitely not correctly explored as a result of prohibition for the reason that holy shrine of God Sri Venkateswara or Balaji situated here. Present examine aims at the detailed review of flora and fauna of Seshachalam Hill Range for the assessment of Biodiversity which is important to formulate appropriate preservation strategies.
Key Words - Seshachalam Hill Selection вЂ“ Biodiversity вЂ“ Conservation
Biodiversity specifies the event of living organisms of three kingdoms either simple or advanced namely Empire Monera, Kingdom Plantae and Kingdom Animalia on the Globe in natural way to form communities and ecosystems. Two attributes of biodiversity according to International Conservation Point of view will be species richness (The range of species within an area) and Endemism (restricted to a particular region and occur no place else). They will reflex the complexity and uniqueness of natural environments. (T. L. Sahu, G. Sahu And Arti Gupta). Seshachalam Hillsides satisfies the two attributes consequently it has been announced recently like a " Biosphere Reserve in the area by the Ministry of Environment and ForestвЂќ which spread over 4755 sq . km. The Seshachalam BAYERISCHER RUNDFUNK covers Sri Venketeswara Nationwide Park, Sri Venketeswara Crazy Life Sanctuary and Idupulapaya Estate of the Late Chief Minister YSR.
Angiospermic diversity about Seshachalam Hillside ranges of Eastern Ghats in Chittoor District of Andhra Pradesh studied by simply K. Madhava Chetty and etal. Forest fires in Sechalam Hill Ranges analyzed by Big t, Sitakumari and mentioned various factors that cause damage to Forests. Traditional Healing Plants of Seshachalam Slopes studied simply by C. Sudhakar Reddy, T. N. Reddy and posted in the Diary of Therapeutic Plants (May, 2009). They mentioned Ethenomedicinal uses of 48 flower species of 44 genera of 30 people used to treatment 32 types of health conditions. New concepts in conservation methods of Biodiversity are analyzed by Kumar S. Sixth is v., Raghavaiah G. S. (2000). Our present study is aimed at the analysis of Biodiversity of this area in order to produce appropriate conservation strategies.
Seshachalam hills are a group of six hills specifically Seshadri, Neeeladri, Garudadri, Anjanadri, Vrishabhadri, Narayanadri and Venkatadri. The highest top is situated in a height of 600m (2000 feet) above mean sea level. Dharmagiri, Gogarbham, Srivarimettu, Micro wave situation and adjacent forests like Mamandur, Kukkaladhodi, Nagapatla and Talakonda to mention a number of are gifted with a very rich botanica and also are plentiful in many therapeutic plants of importance. Varied micro-climatological, undurlating topographical conditions current at several water is catagorized (theerthams) positioned at distinct heights, offer a very great habit and support the expansion of the plant species. It includes about truck plant varieties belonging to...
