Prey, predator, human and climate change interactions in the Himalayas, Nepal
The Himalayas boast an immense biodiversity, and yet many of the ecosystems in these ranges are fragile and threatened. Mr. Aryal research evaluates prey-predator, climate change, and human-wildlife interactions in the Himalayas, with a view towards contributing to strategies for balancing the needs of wildlife conservation and human subsistence and development. Further, the sensitivity of the human-wildlife interactions to climate change necessitated this being taken into account in the study. The study encompasses a range of species that represent human-wildlife conflict in Nepal, including blue sheep, snow leopards and brown bears, as well ecologically important relationships among these species. This study has also examined an endangered lowland species, the hispid hare, and developed participatory management strategies for corridors to assist movements of lowland species of Nepal.
