Conservation and Development of the Karnataka Western Ghats

However valuable a forest is in bio-diversity or other environmental values, if production does not satisfy the local demands for bio resources, conservation of forests is impossible in India. If lops and tops are not available for use as firewood, young trees in the regenerating pole crop will be cut. If grass is not available, cattle consume regenerating trees. Complex economic and behavioural valuation are no substitute for biomass supply.
