Thank you for the information. The working plans are bit older. Is there any original work done by some one with a botany background. In fact, I had been to Chiria mine areas recently. Is there any publication based on recent surveys?

There is a publication in Indian Forester by H S Gupta on the orchids
of West Singhbhum. In the reference you will find, Pankaj Kumar per.
commn.... :( I will tell you later why is it so.
Just for the information of readers, I have been to these places lot
of times for my PhD studies and till Orissa border on foot travelling
inside the Saranda Forests.
It is one of the most diverse and unique areas with around 40 orchids
and many other unique plants, but a naxallite zone.

I think both "sacred groves" and "naxallite prone forests" are effective in in situ plant conservation! ;)

You are correct Vijay. When I visited MM hills in Karnataka, a
forested area where Veerapan use to live. People were saying that
after Veerapan death lots of buildings have come up in the name of Eco-
tourism and all. In fact the MM hills temple authority also
constructed lots of new buildings. These activities devastated lots of
forests around which was intact when Veerapan was there. ATREE
researchers who are working in these area are also supporting this
view and they were saying that forest department is not as effective
as Veerapan. However, we cannot avoid or ignore the fact that the
density or abundance of elephants and other animals had come down
during his ' tenure'.

Dear Sir

The list is prepared by me and my team members from NEERI in 2005 and 2006, when I am working in NEERI, Nagpur. The NEERI was doing EIA studies for Chiria Mine. The list attache in previous mail is the same which we given in EIA report of Chiri Mine.


With Regards
