Intra-variability analysis in the heterogeneous tropical island system of South Asia

Andaman and Nicobar Islands houses vivid ecological habitats with diverse set of ecosystems varying from low altitude sandy beach forest to high altitude dense humid evergreen forests. The islands on account of their isolation, harbors a phenomenal degree of endemic plants and animals species along with rich marine life. The present study, using the application of earth observation system and geospatial tools aims to compare and explore the intra variability of landscape structure as well as the diverse vegetation pattern in North Andaman and Baratang Islands of the Andaman group.
