The River and its Dominion

Tropical Wet Evergreen forest (Kaziranga National Park)

Wet Alluvial Grasslands - Tropical moist mixed deciduous forests - Semi Evergreen Forest

The tropical wet evergreen forest of Kaziranga National Park lies in the Duar flood plains. Its unique geomorphology allows for its rich biodiversity and topography. Through the lens of one of its many endangered species, the Eastern Swamp Deer, the key agent for these geomorphic processes is identified to be the river Brahmaputra. This project aims to understand the co-existence of the flora and fauna with the river and its seasonal and long-term processes.
