  Welcome to Biodiversity Information System

National Biodiversity Characterization at Landscape Level, a project jointly sponsored by Department of Biotechnology and Department of Space, was implemented to identify and map the potential biodiversity rich areas in India. This project has generated spatial information at three levels viz. Satellite based primary information (Vegetation Type map, spatial locations of road & village, Fire occurrence); geospatially derived or modeled information (Disturbance Index, Fragmentation, Biological Richness) and geospatially referenced field samples plots. This relatively large spatial information on the above-mentioned facets of biodiversity has been organized in a web based Biodiversity Information System (BIS) for prioritization, conservation and bio-prospecting. The major products are:

  • Spatial Data on 1:50,000 scale for entire India
    • Vegetation Type
    • Fragmentation
    • Disturbance Index
    • Biological Richness
  • Species Database: Phytosociological database for 16,000+ sample plots for entire India

The study provides information of high disturbance and high biological richness areas suggesting future management strategies and formulating action plans. The study has generated for the first time baseline database which will be a valuable input towards climate change study in the Indian Subcontinent.
