Abstract
Upgrading of Park Management inputs requires a fuller understanding of both biological as well as sociological issues. This assumes greater importance in high human density regions like Global Biodiversity hotspots. It is now becoming clear that parks in such zones need baseline floral and faunal st udies in tandem with a documentation of biotic pressure profile in order to fully assimilate the new participatory approaches to the management. So fa r, such approaches are overshadowed by concern for livelihood issues of loc al human populations only. The impact of such livelihood patterns on park e cosystems, particularly in the case of RET species is not taken cognizance of while framing ne tv prescriptions. Finally, monitoring such prescription s would further refine management inputs through adaptive practices.
