Article
he present study deals with the congregation of avifauna at various locations in Gulf of Kachchh (GoK), Gujarat, India. The study was conducted between 2011 and 2014. A total of 14 sites were identified in Gulf of Kachchh which had regular and remarkable congregation of mono-species or multi-species of waterbirds. The observations were made through...

Phytoplanktons are the primary producer of marine ecosystems and contribute towards the primary productivity of aquatic environment. The present study was carried out at three selected sites of Gulf of Kachchh (GoK) viz; Pirotan, Sachana and Roziport. During the study, a total of 106 species of phytoplankton were recorded, of which the highest spec...

Literature on the biomass estimates and carbon cycles of Asian tropical deciduous forests is very limited. In this study, seven woody species were selected, with four representatives each in chronosequence, and harvested from deciduous forests of Dang, Gujarat for assessing their biomass and carbon content. All the species showed a carbon percentag...

The monitoring of coastal water quality was done on seasonal basis in pre-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon for three years duration (November 2011 to December 2014). Data obtained were applied to Arc-GIS software 10.3 for the preparation of thematic maps to evaluate the spatial and temporal variation in water quality parameters. Cluster analysis s...

We strongly believe that education is a key to the knowledge, and knowledge is the first step towards any kind of change. It is known to everyone that, flora are the greatest kingdom sheltering and nourishing the billions of life today. In Indian literatures, it is said, that, “परोपकाराय फऱन्ति वृक्ााः परोपकाराय वहन्ति नद्याः । परोपकाराय दुहन्ति गा...

Floristic inventory and diversity assessment are necessary to understand the present diversity status of the conservation of biodiversity. Shorelines are one of the most rapidly changing places on the Earth. The Gulf of Kachchh (GoK) is a semi-enclosed coastal indentation with predominance of mangrove ecosystems, coral reefs, associated rich marine...

A. marina belongs to Avicenniaceae family and the specie is widely distributed in intertidal zone of coastal region of Gulf of Kachchh (GoK) region. The goal of the study was to develop the relation between Age and Growth (A&G) in thisspecies in GoK. Therefore, mangrove plantation sites (n=25) under the jurisdiction of Marine National Park and Sanc...

Phytoplanktons are the essential biological component of aquatic ecosystem. Diversity of phytoplank-ton life is used as a measure of productivity of marine ecosystem. Phytoplanktons were estimated qualitatively with reference to their diversity in the Gulf of Kachchh at three sites west coast of India (Poshitra, Narara and Pirotan), for winter seas...

The present observation is confined to the coral reefs of the Gulf of Kachchh at the western coast of India. The observation describes occurrence of two large patches of soft coral belonging to genus Sinulariaon Mangunda reef and Paga reef at the Gulf of Kachchh (GoK). It was observed that the colonies of Sinulariasp completely surrounded other Scl...
