Abstract

Plants used by birds for foraging and nesting and their exploitation by local people for consumptive and commercial use in a part of Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary, India have been documented. Seventeen plant species that were crucial for various bird species to nest and forage have been cut for fuel wood and timber resulting in resource use competition between human and bird.
