Abstract: Land cover change has been one of the major drivers of change leading to an alteration of critical habitats for many of the threatened species worldwide. Species with a narrow range and specialized habitats such as wetland ecosystems are at higher risk. The present paper describes spatial and temporal land use and cover change over the period of last 34 years in the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve (KTWR), Nepal. High spatial resolution Indian Remote-Sensing Satellite (IRS) Linear Imaging and Self Scanning Sensor… Show more

“…This has a direct impact on biodiversity of the reserve, especially the globally threatened species with limited habitat range such as Swamp Francolin, Ganges River dolphin and Wild water buffalo. Chettri et al (2013) and Chaudhary (2007) already noted degradation of ecosystems and the likely consequences for globally threatened species with limited habitat range in the reserve.…”

“…It has subtropical monsoon climate with temperatures between 3.3 C and 33.4 C, and annual rainfall of 2019 mm with spring, summer/monsoon, autumn and winter as four distinct seasons (DNPWC, 2000(DNPWC, , 2009. It has an intricate mosaic of land covers namely grassland, swamp and marshes, forest, river, sand/gravel, and agriculture (Chettri et al, 2013). The reserve's ecosystem is characterized by mixed deciduous riverine forest dominated by Sisso (Dalbergia sissoo), Khair (Acacia catechu), and Simal (Bombax ceiba) while grassland ecosystem is dominated by Phragmitis, Saccharum, Typha, Imperata and Cymbopogon species (DNPWC, 2009).…”

“…Deforestation is still a major problem in the Siwalik and Terai region. In Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, a Ramsar site in eastern Terai, forest area declined 94% from 1976 to 2010 [97].…”

“…Little is known about the extent of such changes in the remote parts of the identified transboundary landscapes. The programme has mapped multi-temporal land cover of KSL, Kangchenjunga Landscape (KL) and BSL using widely recognized Geographic Object-Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) method (Bajracharya et al, 2010;Chettri et al, 2013;Uddin et al, 2014) that uses a multi-resolution segmentation technique. To predict the land change with past decadal trends, IDRISI's land change modeller has been applied.…”
