Raptor Diversity and their Assessment in Listed Areas around Yavatmal City, Maharashtra, Central India

Praveen Joshi

The present paper have discusses the diversity and assessment of raptors in the two forest, five fresh water bodies and their surroundings of Yavatmal city, Maharashtra, central India. Twenty raptors are belonging to Accipitridae family recorded during the study period from Dec. 2014 to Dec. 2015. (Table-1) The two species Sikra and White-eye buzzard have the highest population where the Grey headed fish eagle, Black eagle, Besra, Peregrine falcon, Osprey and Eurasian hobby were rarely observed. The highest population was sighted in the forest area followed by wetland, cultivated land and lastly unplowed lands, all the remaining results are mention in the Table-2 and Graph-1 and Graph-2. The findings has used for analyzing the Shannon-Wiener function formula and result are the species diversity (H-2.35), maximum diversity (Hmax-2.99) and evenness (J-0.78). The formula are implemented individually to selected habitat and results are indicates that FA having Species diversity (H-2.31), maximum diversity (Hmax-2.99) and evenness (E-0.77). WL Species diversity (H-2.62), maximum diversity (Hmax-2.99) and evenness (E-0.87), UL- Species diversity ( H- 1.85), maximum diversity (Hmax-2.99) and evenness (E-0.61). CL- Species diversity (H-1.81), maximum diversity, (Hmax-2.99) and evenness (E-0.60). (Table-1 and Table2). The primary results will provide base line data that helps to motivate the study of occurrence and flyways migration pattern of raptors over the fresh water bodies and forest of Yavatmal city and their surrounding area, Central Asia. The study indicates that selected habitats are fulfilling all the needs of raptors in different seasons. In the future, we will focus on specific habitat selection of the species and create correlation with their occurrence. The number is not satisfactory compare to study area so it is necessary to find the causes regarding number of raptors and suggest fruitful ideas in the conservation of habitat and which helps automatically to increase the number of raptors in the area.
