  • Title
    New phytogeographically noteworthy plant records from Uttarakhand, western Himalaya, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    We recorded three species of angiosperms viz., Dontostemon glandulosus, Potentilla pamirica and Carex sagaensis for the first time from Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve in Uttarakhand, Western Himalaya. These species had not been reported from the state of Uttarakhand, Western Himalaya till date. Since these species are restricted in distribution and very little is known about them, we provide diagnostic features of these species along with photographs to aid field identification, phytogeographic and ecological notes.

  • Title
    Sighting of Tibetan Wolf Canis lupus chanko in the Greater Himalayan range of Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, Uttarakhand, India: a new record
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    In India, the Tibetan Wolf Canis lupus chanko is distributed in the Trans-Himalaya region. We report the sighting of Tibetan Wolf from the Bedini-Ali area that falls in the Greater Himalayan range and is located in the transition zone of Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve in Uttarakhand, India. We hypothesise that the Tibetan wolf inhabiting the Trans-Himalayan areas of Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve would have moved south-west around the alpine regions of Nanda Devi National Park towards Bedini-Ali, following migratory livestock herds that graze in these areas during summer.
