Description

Of all the mountain systems of the world the Himalayas are the longest and highest range of mountains which harbours a potentially rich and varied diversity of the spectrum of fauna and flora.

Today it is quite dismaying to note that the pristine glory and health aura of the Himalayas have been greatly damaged by man who has lavishly over-exploited all natural resources just for his greed and luxury without realizing its consequences.

The book also suggests the remedial measures to save the vanishing Himalayan mountains and the remarkable potentials of their natural resources.

It is, hoped, that the present book would be of immense interest for the Himalayan environmentalists, climatologists, mountain ecologists, hill development experts, highlanders, scholars, scientists, natural resource specialists, designers, planners and all others interested in the Himalayan ecosystems and their conservation.
