Complete Title: 
Ramsar sites of India : Keoladeo National Park, Rajasthan
Non IUCN Publication




A natural depression that was converted into a wetland and water fowl refuge in the 1700s by the then rulers of Bharatpur, Keoladeo National Park has established itself as one of the most famous bird sanctuaries in the world. But despite its elevated status and the protection afforded to it, the park has not been without its problems. This illustrated report is based on the findings of a ten-year ecology study of Keoladeo National Park undertaken by the Bombay Natural History Society between 1980 and 1990. Third to be published by the WWF-India under theĀ Ramsar Sites of India Series, this publication describes the characteristics of the Keoladeo wetland ecosystem, its biological diversity, prevailing threats to the park, and present management options.
