  • Title
    On the status of the Long-tailed Marmot Marmota caudata (Mammalia: Rodentia: Sciuridae) in Kargil, Ladakh (Indian Trans-Himalaya)
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Two species of marmots occur in India, the Himalayan Marmot Marmota himalayana and the Long-tailed Marmot or Golden Marmot Marmota caudata. Marmots constitute part of the diet of some globally endangered carnivores in the Trans-Himalaya, yet studies on marmots in India are scanty. Besides, the status of the Long-tailed Marmot is still unknown in India. Considering this, a survey was carried out in Rangdum Valley, Kargil between May and July 2011 to collect baseline information on the Long-tailed Marmot. Trails and roads were explored through walk and slow moving vehicle, respectively. The Long-tailed Marmot was found to have a density of 14.31±2.10 per sq.km. and an encounter rate of 2.86±0.42 per km. Most of the observations of Long-tailed Marmot were in hilly areas (77.7%), lower slope (48.8%) and herbaceous meadow (38.0%). The current information is expected to bring concern towards this lesser known species in India.

    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    In this paper, three species of Phallus viz., P. macrosporus, P. rubicundus and P. hadriani are described, illustrated and discussed along with habitat photographs and line drawings of microscopic features. Out of these, P. macrosporus is new to India. P. rubicundus is new to Jammu & Kashmir whereas P. hadriani constitutes a new report of its occurrence from the Jammu Province. A key to the investigated species is also provided.

  • Title
    A pilot survey of the avifauna of Rangdum Valley, Kargil, Ladakh (Indian Trans-Himalaya)
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    An avifaunal survey of Rangdum Valley in Kargil District, Jammu & Kashmir, India was carried out between June and July 2011.  McKinnon’s species richness and total count methods were used.  A total of 69 species were recorded comprising six passage migrants, 25 residents, 36 summer visitors and three vagrants.  The recorded species represents seven orders and 24 families, accounting for 23% of the species known from Ladakh.  A majority of the bird species are insectivores.

  • Title
    First record of three species of soil nematodes of the suborder Cephalobina from Ladakh region, Jammu & Kashmir, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present paper reports three species of soil nematodes of the suborder Cephalobina collected from Ladakh region of the Jammu & Kashmir State, India. Two species, Cervidellus vexilliger (de Man, 1880) Thorne, 1937 and Chiloplacus demani (Thorne, 1925) Thorne, 1937 are reported for the first time from India, while, Acrobeloides nanus (de Man, 1880) Anderson 1968 is a first record from Ladakh. The species dealt with here have been adequately described and photomicrographed, with additional notes provided on variations encountered in measurements. The occurrence of these species from trans-Himalayan zone conforms with the zoogeographical pattern of distribution of the invertebrate fauna of the zone which harbours both Palaearctic and Oriental elements.
