Being mostly evergreen, they possess more or less similar physiological and structural adaptations. This, coupled with an around 1. Sunderban landscape is continuous with the mangrove habitat in Bangladesh. A variety of habitats have developed to accommodate the wildlife, including beaches, estuaries, permanent and semi-permanent swamps, tidal flats, tidal creeks, coastal dunes, back dunes and levees.

The estimation of tiger population in Sunderban, as a part of the all India tiger estimation using the refined methodology, could not be carried out owing to the unique habitat and obliteration of evidences due to high and low tides. The moderate saltwater forest covers most of the southern parts of Khulna and Bagerhat districts where Sundari is the dominant species. The forest is a good source of fuel, tannins, thatching, wooden articles, medicinal plants, and fodder. They conduct fixed departures and private tours from Kolkata throughout the year. Conventional approaches to wetland conservation have often centered on protected areas. The processes of migration studied and empirically illustrated include migration stream, migration pattern, reasons for migration, the nexus between migration and social network, aspiration and different human, economic and physical capital.
