The endangered tree Cryptocarya anamalayana Gamble, Southern Western Ghats was assessed in detail using multiple criteria incorporating population and other field data. The Ecological Niche profiling along with Niche modelling and incorporation of spatial threat factors has been introduced here as a new approach for the predicting suitable locations and more effective interpretation, considering the factors determining Eltonian niche, which lack in niche model-based prediction. This approach could contribute significantly to conservation planning and ecorestoration of the species and serve as a better possible model.
