A little thread on biodiversity #datasharing #openaccess #openscience. On sharing data on #rainforest birds and habitat that @gundupoo and I collected during 1997-99 in the Kalakad-Mundathurai Tiger Reserve #WesternGhats... a retrospective from a quarter century later 1/n In KMTR, March 1999; Photo by P JeganathanIn KMTR, Dec 2018; Photo by Kalyan Varma
Field biologists need not just collect or hoard biodiversity data for their own use. Sharing under a CC-BY or public domain (CC0) license enables better and wider use and adds value to science and scholarship, students and citizens. 2/n Illustration @dasaptaerwin @WikiCommons
For a start, our doctoral research data from KMTR, used in a couple of papers, is now @datadryad (CC0/Public Domain license). Bird and vegetation/habitat data from 21 transects in rainforests along an elevation gradient and from abandoned plantations. 3/n

ಕಬ್ಬೆಕ್ಕುಗಳು - CIVETS

ವಿವೆರಿಡೀ(viverridae) ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಕಬ್ಬೆಕ್ಕುಗಳು ಬೆಕ್ಕುಗಳಿಗೆ ಹೋಲಿಕೆ ಕಂಡು ಬಂದರೂ ಮುಂಗುಸಿಗಳಿಗೆ ಹತ್ತಿರದವು, ಉದ್ದ ಶರೀರ ಗಿಡ್ಡ ಕಾಲು, ಪ್ರತಿ ಕಾಲಿಗೆ ಭಾಗಶಃ ಒಳ ಸೇರುವ ಉಗುರುಳ್ಳ ಐದು ಬೆರಳುಗಳಿವೆ, ನೀಳ ತಲೆ ಚೂಪಾದ ಮುಸುಡಿ ಇದೆ, ಇವು ಮಿಶ್ರಹಾರಿಗಳು.
ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಮೂರು ಜಾತಿಯ ಕಬ್ಬೆಕ್ಕುಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಬಹುದು. ಇಂಗ್ಲೀಷಲ್ಲಿ ಇವಕ್ಕೆ Civet ಎಂದು ಕರೆಯುತ್ತಾರೆ.

1) ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಕಬ್ಬೆಕ್ಕು:Asian palm civet ಇದು ರಾಜ್ಯದೆಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಕಂಡುಬರುತ್ತದೆ, ಮರ ಹಾಗು ನೆಲ ವಾಸಿ, ಮಿಶ್ರಹಾರಿ, ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯ ಮೈಬಣ್ಣ ಬಿಳಿ ಮಿಶ್ರಿತ ಕಪ್ಪು ರಾತ್ರಿ ಸಂಚರಿಸುವ ಇವು ಪಾಳು ಮನೆ ಮರದ ಪೊಟರೆಯಲ್ಲಿ
ವಾಸಿಸುತ್ತದೆ, ಕೆಲವು ಸಲ ಮನೆಗಳಿಗೂ ನುಗ್ಗಿ ದಾಂಧಲೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ

2) ಪುನುಗು ಬೆಕ್ಕು Small Indian civet ಇದು ಸಾಮಾನ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಎಲ್ಲೆಡೆ ಕಾಣುತ್ತದೆ, 3 - 4 ಕಿಲೋ ತೂಗುತ್ತವೆ, ಹಳದಿ ಬೂದು ಅಥವಾ ಬೂದುಗಂದು, ಬೆನ್ನ ಮೇಲೆ 4-5 ಕಪ್ಪು ಪಟ್ಟೆಗಳು ಪಕ್ಕದಲ್ಲಿ ಚುಕ್ಕೆಗಳ ಸಾಲು ಇದೆ, ಬಾಲದುದ್ದಕ್ಕೂ ಕಪ್ಪು ಉಂಗುರಗಳಿವೆ.

ಇಂದು ದೇಶಾದ್ಯಂತ ಹಾಗೂ ನಮ್ಮ ರಾಜ್ಯಾದ್ಯಂತ ಆಚರಿಸುತ್ತಿರೋ “ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಸಪ್ತಾಹ” ಕ್ಕೆ ನಮ್ಮ ತೀವ್ರ ವಿರೋಧವಿದೆ….!

ರಾಜ್ಯಪಾಲರು, ಅರಣ್ಯಮಂತ್ರಿಗಳು, ಅರಣ್ಯ ಪಡೆಯ ಮುಖ್ಯಸ್ಥರು ಇಂದು ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆದ ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ರಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದು: 👇👇👇👇( ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ಓದಿ )🙏🙏🙏 Retweet ಮಾಡಿ ImageImageImageImage
ನಿಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿದಿರುವಂತೆ ಈ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ಪಶ್ಚಿಮಘಟ್ಟದೊಳಗಿನ ಅತೀಸೂಕ್ಷ್ಮ ಪರಿಸರ ವಲಯದಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಬರುತ್ತವೆ. ಹಾವನ್ನು ಕುರಿತಾಗಿ, ಕಪ್ಪೆಗಳ ಅಧ್ಯಯನ ಹೀಗೇ ನಾನಾ ರೀತಿಯ ಸಂಶೋಧನೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ನೀವುಗಳು ಯಾಕೆ ಇಂತಹ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳನ್ನು ವಿರೋಧಿಸ್ತಿಲ್ಲ? ಮುಂದೆ ಈ ಯೋಜನೆಗಳೆಲ್ಲಾ ನಡೆದುಹೋದರೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ನಮಗೆ ಕುಡಿಯೋಕೇ ನೀರು ಸಿಗಲ್ಲ…!
ಉಸಿರೇ ಇರಲ್ಲ…! ಇನ್ನು ಕಪ್ಪೆ ಹಾವು ಚಿಟ್ಟೆಗಳ ಮಾತೆಲ್ಲಿ ಬಂತು?

ವನ್ಯಜೀವಿ ಕಾಯ್ದೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿದೆ?
ಅರಣ್ಯನೀತಿ ಎಲ್ಲಿದೆ?
ಮಾಧವ್ ಗಾಡ್ಗೀಳ್ ವರದಿಗಳು ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋದವು? ಅವುಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣವಾಗಿ ಜಾರಿಮಾಡುವುದು ಮತ್ತು ಅದರಂತೆ ಕಾನೂನು ಕಾಪಾಡುವುದು ಯಾರ ಕೆಲಸ? ಸರ್ಕಾರದವರು ಎಡವಿದಾಗ ನಿಮ್ಮಂತವರು ಎಚ್ಚರಿಸಬೇಕಲ್ಲವೇ?

A #thread on our recent paper in @PLOSNTDs examining ecological #evidence-base for #DiseaseControl management practices for #KyasanurForestDisease #AcademicTwitter #Scicomm #OneHealth; paper led by @SarahBurthe from @MonkeyFever_ consortium
#Diseasecontrol strategies originate through endorsements by Governments/academia/authorities; they're often not field-tested robustly; even when they are, evidence is limited to one sector (cf. #OneHealth #Intersectoral approaches);
#publichealth approaches ought to be contextual & their effectiveness ought to be evaluated, yet strategies for disease control often spread through word of mouth and are sometimes untested;

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

Climate portals like @Fridays4future India , #LetIndiaBreathe , The Is No Earth B were blocked for several days and issued notices under anti terror law UAPA. #DelhiPolice later withdrew the notices. Websites were subsequently unblocked. But why was this done Thread continues...
These websites have been writing to the Govt against #EIA2020draft & spreading awareness about the problematic clauses in the draft... Action was allegedly taken because they allegedly spammed mailbox of Environment Ministry and Ministry. Thread continues....
The deadline for response to the Draft is till August 10. Govt had set a June deadline but Delhi HC ordered the extension in the light of #Lockdown so that people get enough time to respond, participate, object to any problematic clauses in #EIA2020draft ... Thread continues...

#KeralaFloods might hv an astral connection, as it is believed #Kerala d land of #vamana celebrates every yr #Onam around this time, Onam falls on d birth #constellation of vamana i.e #Shravana nakshtra in which we had d longest total lunar eclipse of this century on 27/28 July
Like at a personal level for one who is born or associated with shravana constellation or Nakshtra d #Eclipse affects individually similarly it affects a region in this case #kerala at a mundane level astrally on human affairs that runs across d southern belt of #westernghats
Also #Kerala is a land blessed by d #serpents & d reason for its fertility is directly related to d blessings bestowed by #Nagas on #Parasurama in a barren land infested with sea salt, hence not respecting d blessings by cutting down forests on large scale in d name of developmnt

Bookworms of the world, listen up! On a recent family trip to Mahabaleshwar, I had the fortune of visiting Bhilar, India's first village of books. Sounds fascinating, doesn't it? So I am going to do a bilingual Twitter thread to show what is a books village after all.
Hi! Today, May 4, marks completion of an year since Bhilar, India's first books village was thrown up to public in Mahabaleshwar, Satara district.

नमस्कार. आज, ४ मे. एका वर्षा पूर्वी, भारतातील पहिले पुस्तकांचे गाँव, भिलार, (ता. महाबळेश्वर, जि.सातारा), याचे लोकार्पण झाले.
Located in #WesternGhats between Maharashtra's top hill stations #Mahabaleshwar and #Panchgani in Satara district, it was conceptualised by Marathi language department.

भिलार हे महाबळेश्वर आणि पाचगणी च्या मधे वसलेले गाव. प्रकल्पाची संकल्पना मराठी भाषा विभागाची होती.
