The roadside vegetation along the TCH in TNNP is highly diverse. In this study, a total Roadside revegetation book 65 vascular and non-vascular plants that had cover value more than 10% were recorded from four roadside microhabitats ().The MRPP showed that floristic composition in terms of species abundance was significantly different among the four microhabitats along the TCH (T = −, P ≤ ).Cited Roadside revegetation book Roadside revegetation book species of wildlife use roadside vegetation as habitat.

The ring-necked pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) utilizes roadsides for all types of cover. Because pheasants are nonmigratory and generally live their entire lives within a 1- to 2-mile radius, pheasants are excellent indicator species to predict both quantity and quality of roadside wildlife by: 3.
