Answer

Nilgiri biosphere reserve is located in the Western Ghats. An ecosystem with plants and animals of unusual scientific and natural interest is known as a biosphere reserve.

It also includes the 'sustainable use of natural resources'. The number of biosphere reserves in May 2002 was 408 in 94 countries.
