The book is divided into three parts. Part I deals with basic description of biodiversity values of the area. Part II deals with natural resources and attributes with chapters providing information on past management practices, proposed management actions viz-a-viz protection, habitat management, eco-development plan, eco-tourism strategy and research required for developing complete understanding of Kaimur ecosystem. Part III presents the financial estimates to implement the complete conservation strategy for achieving a balance between conservation interests of Kaimur ecosystem and securing livelihood security of indigenous communities.
