3. Fellowship Objectives and Deliverables(HRAs)
Position Study Area Proposed Objectives Deliverables Achievements (upto 31.03.18)
HRA001 Sikkim Himalaya Conservation, sustainable use and equitable benefit sharing arising out of use of natural resources

• Critical habitats/ corridors/ecosystems mapped and investigated

• Conservation of endemic/threatened/significant species augmented through ex situ/ in situ mechanisms

• Established an information baseline for in situ conservation for orchids.

• Completed priority setting for target species.

• Prepared Technical Bulletin on “DNA bar coding of Indian Orchids”.

• Initiated the standardization of mass multiplication protocol of rare orchid species.

HRA002 Sikkim & Darjeeling Hills Long-term Ecological/ Environmental monitoring of orchids and assessment of threats to biodiversity

• Identification of sites for long-term environmental monitoring

• Mainstreaming of long-term monitoring and building scientific evidence base across key sectors achieved.

• Identification of sites for long-term environmental monitoring in progress.

• Currently collecting herbarium data of orchids of West Bengal and Sikkim so as to find out locations of species described as threatened and endemic.

• Associated vegetation of Diplomeris hirsuta and Satyrium sp. has been achieved and the soil pH and moisture levels of those sites have been measured. Visited the Bagora forest range and noted the presence of many epiphytic orchids.

• The ecology of Cymbidium devonianum might be studied. Currently also formulating the methods to be employed for longterm monitoring.
