“I strongly believe that Universities around the world can play an important role in increasing the understanding and awareness of biodiversity and the environment, and its importance in the survival of the human race.”

The main purpose of this book is to promote awareness about the importance of conserving biodiversity and the environment.The scientific names of the species stated in this book are based on the tentative identification of the respective species of the flora and fauna.

This book is our attempt to document the wealth of the AIMST campus with respect to trees, shrubs, birds, butterflies, fungi (mushrooms), insects, and the amphibians that are visually apparent.
