Diversity of terricolous bryophytes in mining area of tropical evergreen forest of Southern India.
Loss of diversity is one of the pressing crisis of the present global warming and climate change. Anthropogenic activity through mining is an addition. We investigated to know the diversity pattern of terricolous bryophytes in a patch of tropical evergreen forest of kemmanugundi (13º 32' to 13º 40' N lat, 75º 44' to 75º 45' E long.). Species recorded are Bryum coronatum, Funaria hygrometrica, Bryum argentium, Hyoplila involuta, Trematodon longicollis, Philonotis thwaitesii, Pogonatum microstomum, Campylopodium khasianum. Percent of species diversity and density recorded were not constant but the number of species retained same during the study area. Based on the available mean rainfall pattern the speculations were made in a full-length paper to know their sensitivity to their surrounding environment.
