Abstract:
Dendrocalamus stocksii (Munro.) is an extremely manageable thorn less, mid-sized bamboo species with great economic and socio-cultural importance found naturally distributed in Central Western Ghats from Kasargod (Kerala) to Ratnagiri (Maharashtra) (Fig. 1). This is an extremely manageable species with a great economic and ecological importance. Previous studies have indicated that this species has problem in seed setting coupled with sporadic flowering behaviour. Due to solid nature of culms, it has multifarious uses in agrarian ecosystems along the Central Western Ghats and is maintained in field bunds/farm boundaries and in homesteads.
