Fauna of Sundarban Biosphere Reserve

Kailash Chandra (Editor) J R B Alfred (Editor) Bulganin Mitra (Editor) Biswajit Roy Chowdhury (Editor)

The zoological survey of India (ZSI) is a taxonomic research organization, established on 1st July 1916, dedicated itself to exploring and documenting the country’s faunal resources. It was a long felt need to update the faunal data of the Sundarban Biosphere Reserve. This is the first consolidated pictorial document on the fauna of the Indian part of these deltaic mangrove islands, prepared with the latest published information from Protista to Mammalia, and documents over 2600 species of animals. Moreover, it records the discovery of new species exclusively from this vulnerable part of the world, as well as the unique Royal Bengal tiger, threats related to climate change and the socio-cultural profile of this UNESCO designated World Heritage site.
