236) Commemorating the Centenary of the setting up of the Zoological Survey of India in 1916: Commemorative postage stamps issued by the Department of Posts, India:

The establishment of the ZSI – its Heritage:

The Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) was established on 01.07.1916 to promote survey, exploration and research leading to the advancement in the knowledge on various aspects of the rich animal diversity of the Indian sub-continent.

The survey had its genesis in the Museum of the Asiatic Society of Bengal (1814-1875) and the Zoological Section of the Indian Museum (1875-1916) in Kolkata. The present day Headquarters of the ZSI are at Kolkata.

With increasing interest in the life sciences the expansion programme of the ZSI was a logical outcome. The ZSI has established 16 Regional and Field Stations so far and has developed into a major National institution.

During 2015, ZSI is celebrating its 100th year of establishment and service to the nation and is an important knowledge bank for future India. It assists the Ministry of Environment & Forests, Government of India in the conservation of fauna of the country.

The requirement for setting up the Zoological Survey of India (ZSI):

India is recognised as one of the 12 Mega Diversity countries of the World with two bio-diversity hot spots – the Eastern Himalayas and the Western Ghats. According the World bio-geographic classification, India represents two of the major realms (the Palaearctic and Indo-Malayan) and three biomes (Tropical Humid Forests, tropical Dry/Deciduous Forests and warm deserts/Semi-Deserts). With only about 2.4% of the World’s total land surface, India is known to have over 7.5% of the species of animals that the World holds and this percentage accounts for about 92,000 species known so far.

India is very rich in terms of biological diversity due to its unique bio-geographical location, diversified climatic conditions and enormous eco-diversity and geo-diversity.

There are about 1.7 million living species described from all over the World and another 15 million species are expected to be discovered sometime in the future. In India, till date nearly 92,000 species of animals have been described, while a large number of species are expected to be discovered, particularly from the lower invertebrate groups occurring in various eco-systems. Also, the status of the higher group of animals (especially those mentioned in the Schedules) need to be studied before their habitats disappear, with a view to conserving their populations.

The Objectives of the Zoological Survey of India (ZSI):

The Objectives of the ZSI are as follows:

Primary Objectives:

-      Exploration, Survey, Inventorying and Monitoring of faunal diversity in various States, Eco-systems and Protected Areas of India.

-      Taxonomic studies of all faunal components collected.

-      Periodic review of the Status of Threatened and endemic species.

-      Preparation of Red Data Book, Fauna of India and Fauna of the States.

-      Bio-ecological studies on selected important communities/species.

-      Preparation of databases for the recorded species of the country.

-      Maintenance and Development of National Zoological Collections.

-      Training, Capacity Building and Human Resources Development.

-      Faunal identification, Advisory services and Library services.

-      Publication of results including Fauna of India and Fauna of the States.

Secondary Objectives:

-      Environmental Impact Studies.

-      Maintenance and development of Museum at Headquarters and Regional Stations.

-      Development of ENVIS and CITES Centres.

-      Research Fellowship, Associateship and Emeritus Scientist Programmes.

-      Collaborative Research Programmes on Bio-Diversity with other Organisations.

-      GIS and Remote Sensing Studies for animal diversity as well as for selected threatened species.

-      Chrosomal mapping and DNA finger printing.

The scope & functions of the ZSI:

Zoological Survey of India is engaged in exploring, naming, describing, classifying and documenting animals from all over India. Nevertheless, much more needs to be done to understand and investigate the faunal diversity of India in line with the objectives of the Convention of Biological Diversity, for scientific use and equitable sharing of the benefits of animal resources of the country.

The scope and functions of the ZSI have been considerably expanded, particularly in the light of the Convention on Biological Diversity, ratified by the Government of India in 1994. To meet the challenges of bio-diversity conservation, sustainable utilisation and dissemination of knowledge on faunal diversity to all stake holders, the ZSI has been working at augmenting its research infrastructure.

Recently efforts have been made towards an integrated approach to zoological research comprising biological, cyto-taxonomic and ecological aspects.

ZSI has been monitoring services on population status of commercially important species of fauna and providing input for underutilized, culturable species both from terrestrial and aquatic systems.

The enormity of the task undertaken by the ZSI:

Little can be done to assess the degree and value of biodiversity without knowing the species involved. The health of eco-systems also cannot be monitored without recognising the presence of the individual organisms that are crucial for or indicative of ecological processes. The task is by all means gigantic. For example – ZSI has collected several samples India-wide but only about 65-70% could be taxonomically studied so far. These include the major groups of vertebrates, while the lower groups of invertebrates need more attention in identification as well as in surveys and exploration. ZSI is endeavouring hard to bridge the gap between actual research and the overall task. By gradually strengthening its staff and expanding its research programmes, the ZSI has geared up to meet the challenges head on and to meet the demands of the future.

Bio-diversity can be conserved by the protection of undisturbed areas, representing the variety of natural eco-systems. It means that many species yet unknown to science can be protected and will be available for assessment for their possible utilisation in future. ZSI provides information and vital data for the in-situ conservation of various species in different eco-systems, both within and outside the protected areas.

Sustainable use is the use of components of biological diversity in a way and at a rate that does not lead to the long-term decline of biological diversity, thereby maintaining its potential to meet the needs and aspirations of present and future generations.

ZSI, the Guardian of the National Zoological Collections:

The ZSI functions as the guardian of the National Zoological Collections, containing over a million identified specimens from all animal groups ranging from Protozoa the Mammals. Extensive and intensive field explorations are undertaken by the ZSI in different parts of the country for the studies of fauna, systematic zoology, and animal ecology. Wildlife and zoo-geography, animal behaviour, animal population and also marine fauna and the results of the explorations and research are published regularly in the ZSI’s own journals as well as National and International periodicals of repute.

Publications of the Zoological Survey of India:

The publications of the ZSI are widely circulated and have an excellent reputation around the World. These publications are the main media for dissemination of the results of Zoological researches conducted by the ZSI, as well as, by outside Zoologists on Indian Zoology and a number of valuable papers have already appeared under the aegis of ZSI Publications.  The ZSI brings out regularly a number of Journals incorporating research results.

Some of the Publications are:

-      Records of the Zoological Survey of India (Formerly Records of the Indian Museum).

-      Occasional papers: Records of the Zoological Survey of India

-      Memoirs of the Zoological Survey of India (Formerly Memoirs of the Indian Museum).

-      Annual Report of Zoological Survey of India (published every financial year).

-      Bibliography of Indian Zoology (so far 33 volumes have been published).

-      Handbooks.

-      Special Publications (33 volumes/books of general and specific nature have been published).

-      Fauna of India (Formerly Fauna of British India).

-      State Fauna Series.

-      Conservation Area Series (34 documents have been published so far).

-      Eco-system Series (15 documents have been published).

-      Prani Jagat” (Hindi).

Training and Advisory Services:

Besides regularly providing identification and advisory services to research establishments, including more than 200 Universities in India, the ZSI also provides short term training in the art of taxidermy to candidates sponsored by different organisations. It has continued to maintain its objectives of taxonomic research, survey and documentation of Indian fauna.

It also organises an annual training programme in collection, preservation and identification of insects and mites of economic importance.

Some other essential services provided by the ZSI:

ZSI has been providing regular services in regard to permissible limits of legal trading of faunal resources or derivatives thereof, monitoring services on population status of commercially important species and provides input for underutilised, culturable species both from terrestrial and aquatic systems.

ZSI also provides timely warning on declining populations of species of commercial importance to ensure sustainable use of components of biological diversity.

ZSI also undertakes Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) with special reference to ecology and wildlife.
