These are (i) natural or core zone (ii) manipulation or buffer zone and (iii) A transitionoutside the buffer zone. The Core Zone: The core zone is kept absolutely undisturbed. It must contain suitable habitat for numerous plant and animal species, including higher order predators and mcontain centers of endemism. Core areas often conserve the wild relatives of economic species andalso represent important genetic reservoirs. The core zones also contain places of exceptionalscientific interest. A core zone secures legal protection and management and research activities thatdo not affect natural processes and wildlife are allowed. The Buffer Zone: In the Buffer Zone, which adjoins or surrounds core zone, uses and activities are managed in waysthat protect the core zone. These uses and activities include restoration, demonstration sites forenhancing value addition to the resources, limited recreation, tourism, fishing and grazing, which arepermitted to reduce its effect on core zone. Research and educational activities are to beencouraged. Human activities, if natural within BR, are likely to be permitted to continue if these donot adversely affect the ecological diversity. The Transition Zone: The Transition Zone is the outermost part of a Biosphere Reserve. This is usually not delimited oneand is a zone of cooperation where conservation, knowledge and management skills are applied anduses are managed in harmony with the purpose of the Biosphere Reserve. This includes settlements,crop lands, managed forests and area for intensive recreation, and other economic usescharacteristic of the region. Difference between BR and National parks/Sanctuaries: It may be noted that BRs are not a substitute or alternative, but a re-enforcement to the existing protected areas. However, the Biosphere Reserves differprotected areas due to their emphasis on Conservation of overall biodiversity and landscape (rather than some specific flagship species) to allow natural andevolutionary processes to continue without any hindrance, and enhancement of local people’s participation and their Training. Courtesy: Ministry of Environment and Forests Pages:   1 2 March 5th, 2013 | Tags: biodiversity , protected areas , wild life conservation , wildlife | Category: Environment , Geography ONE COMMENT ON “BIOSPHERE RESERVES OF INDIA” Leave a Reply   arvind pal singh on May 2, 2013 at 11:59 am said: very fine study material Reply ↓  5/8/13Biosphere Reserves of **Connect with: Powered byOneAll Social Login Your email address will not be published.
