The national park, although famous as a dwelling house of the largest population of tigers in the country, is also a thriving habitat for distinct floral variants. Did you know that the Corbett national park witnesses more than 600 exquisite species of trees, grasses, shrubs, climbers, herbs, and ferns? Are you eager to gather insight into the biodiversity in the forest? Did you always wonder what attracts and invites a naturalist into the jungles of Jim Corbett? Let's find out:
A venture into the marshy and wild lands of Corbett is all about cruising around acres of deciduous trees like Sal, Khair, and Sissoo. Besides, there are coniferous trees cropping up at the peaks of the Kumaon ridges, like the Chir Pine. From teakwood plants to Banj Oak, there are diverse plantations to be witnessed in the verdant stretches of wildlife conservation.
Why only deciduous trees? The forest comprises palm trees and fruit-bearing trees too. For example, the marshy floors make excellent grounds for trees like Jamun (Syzygium cumini), Aamla (Emblica officinalis), Kanju, Mahua, Bel, Kusum, and more. Did you know that the forest includes diverse species of vibrant flowering trees too? Witness the bright red blooms of Semal, the beautiful pink and white-hued Kachnaar, the scarlet red flowers of the Indian Coral or Madaar, and the magnificent "Flame-of-the-forest" or Dhak.
Plants like Eucalyptus, Silver Oak, and Bottlebrush are also artificially harvested in and around the habitat.
Very few truly know that the verdant stretches of Jim Corbett also comprise small clusters of bamboo forest in the nooks and crannies of the wild. However, the only notable species recognised is the male bamboo featuring attributes such as stout stems and glossy and paper-like stem sheaths.
A lesser-known fact about bamboo:
Bamboo trees flower too, although maybe once in decades, but the trees bear pretty flowers all at once. Unfortunately, the plants disperse the seeds, wilt off, and die together.
Why just alpine and deciduous trees? The foliage of the Kumaon wildlife conservatory records a large bunch of 70 and more diverse grass species. These include names like:
- Khus Khus
- Tiger grass
- Bhabar, also known as Baib
- Speargrass with sharp blades
- Themeda arudinacea
- Narkul, etc.
The grasses occupy distinct habitats across the forest. Some are razor-sharp to spike and cut the skin.
If you are slightly aware of ecology and plant biodiversity, it is very easy to picture the abundance of shrubs in the forest. One of the most sprawling species of shrubs spotted is Ber, offering a lush habitat and source of food to the rich wildlife and avifauna in the jungles. Other shrubs in Corbett include:
- Maror phali that bear twisted spiral pods as fruits
- Hisar bearing succulent and yellow berry-like fruits
- Karaunda carrying sour fruits
- Jhau, particularly alongside the marshy basins of the Ramganga river.
In short, the floral variance in Jim Corbett is awe-inspiring. Besides, the abundance of wildlife and birds in the region is unmissable too. So, keep a check on the Jim Corbett resorts packages and plan a trip to the beautiful woodlands of Uttarakhand at the earliest.By: Resorts by the Baagh
