We explored patterns of plant species richness and composition along an elevational gradient (4,985–5,685 m a.s.l.) on Buddha Mountain, 100 km northwest of Lhasa, Tibet. We recorded the presence of plants and lichens in 1-m2 quadrats separated by 25-m elevational intervals (174 quadrats in 29 elevational bands) along a vertical transect with a SE aspect. We(More)
Elevation confers limitations on distribution of organisms through correlated variations in temperature, moisture, radiations and precipitation. The elevation gradients of terricolous lichen species richness in Garhwal, western Himalaya were assessed using generalized additive models, in order to compare distribution patterns of different growth-forms,(More)
Secondary succession is an increasing phenomenon due to global changes in agriculture policies and practices. The empirical findings are biased towards the temperate zone. Abandonment of agriculture fields is less frequent in the subtropical and tropical zones where agriculture areas are, in general, expanding. But there are exceptions; a rapid rate of(More)
Integration of WorldView-2 satellite image with small footprint airborne LiDAR data for estimation of tree carbon at species level has been investigated in tropical forests of Nepal. This research aims to quantify and map carbon stock for dominant tree species in Chitwan district of central Nepal. Object based image analysis and supervised nearest neighbor(More)
