This report is the culmination of Phase-II of the Bio-resources board Project. During Phase I, we carried out a desktop study of the status of bio-resources of Lakshadweep Islands. The aim of phase 1 was to carry out a literature search find out what information on the bio-resources of Lakshadweep was already available and zero in on the gaps that needed to be filled up. This report was subsequently published in 2002. Phase 1 provided a broad picture of the situation in Lakshadweep.
