The team of experts from the university would visit each site and make plans for the planting of the species in the allotted 20 to 25 acres.
Since most of the animals of that era were extinct, models or figurines of these would be placed at vantage points among the plants.
Those that were identifiable among the present living species would be chosen to be part of the fauna of the ecosystem. But, their movement would be restricted in order to protect the flora, the Vice - Chancellor added.
"Many intricate details have to be taken notice of while re - creating the ecosystem. For example, in Kurinji, honey is a very important factor to be included.
Hence, a beehive has to be created on a tree. People of Kurinji slept in lofts made in elevated homes for fear of attack from animals. Hence, provision has to be made for these too," Mr. Boopathi said.
The university hoped to start planting before the onset of the North - East monsoon in September. Some plants and trees could be uprooted and re - planted to save time.
Various other aspects of the Sangam era would be taken into consideration from other experts before the university decided on the final plan.
"The work will be put on fast track because the gardens are expected to be inaugurated during Pongal, according to MSSRF Chairman M.S. Swaminathan," the Vice - Chancellor said.
