On the basic of the assumption that linguistic diversity and biodiversity are correlated, many a few studies have been done. For example, significance of the relationship between language and species richness through different area-specific parameters has been demonstrated. This demonstration also reveals that there is a similar kind of relationship between linguistic varieties and forest area cover of the Indian states. Result shows a strong positive correlation between these two variables.
