In the introductory chapter, we summarised the impacts of human pressures on the distribution and abundance of large mammals, forest birds and vegetation across the world. Chapter  4 (Results and Findings) provided quantitative evidence on the effects of varied management regimes on different components of biodiversity in each of the three levels of protection. This chapter is all about the implication of results in the light of the data as well as other studies and policy positions, for the future management of biodiversity and protected areas in India.
