About the Book
The colossal and awe-inspiring Himalayas eulogized by the people of India as nature’s marvel and the abode of gods are one of the most threatened life-support systems on the earth today. The continuing deforestation and the resultant high-intensity landslides, unplanned developmental activities and natural factors such as earthquakes, neo-tectonic activities, cloud bursts etc are some of the factors threatening the very existence of the Himalayas. “Biodiversity Conservation in the Himalayas” is a Compendium of articles written by experts and workers connected with Himalayan studies. The volume covers a wide range of topics having a direct bearing on the health and security of the most outstanding yet fragile Himalayan ecosystems. The authors have tried to analyse the causes of the degradation of the Himalayas and suggested measures to restore and regain the beauty and biodiversity of these mighty mountains.
