Temperate wetlands provide ecosystem services for Himalayan communities and are important targets for biological conservation. However, over the past decade, management activities around these sites have lagged due, in part, to limited baselines on their historical ecology and hydrologic dynamics. This article advances Himalayan wetland studies by reviewing available data from Khecheopalri, a temperate peatland located in the Sikkim Eastern Himalayas. Formed after the Last Glacial Maximum…

Integrating ethnobiological knowledge into biodiversity conservation in the Eastern Himalayas
TLDR
The results demonstrated the value of engaging local knowledge holders as active participants in conservation, and suggested the need for further ethnobiological research in the Eastern Himalayas, can help integrate diverse datasets into evidence-based policy.
Land use change and its impact on hydro-ecological linkages in Himalayan watersheds
Mountains are amongst the most fragile environments in the world and are a repository of biodiversity, water and other ecosystem services. Mountains influence far more than their geographical limits

Impact of land cover change on a mountain ecosystem and its services: case study from the Phobjikha valley, Bhutan
ABSTRACT Introduction: Mountains occupy 24% of the global land surface and are home to 12% of the world’s population; they host the world’s principal biomes and supply a diverse array of ecosystem
Widespread global peatland establishment and persistence over the last 130,000 y
TLDR
It is shown that northern peatlands accumulate significant C stocks during warmer times, indicating their potential for C sequestration during the warming Anthropocene.
Comparative assessment of runoff characteristics under different land use patterns within a Himalayan watershed
Large quantities of sediments leave the Himalaya through its rivers. These rivers are charged with sediments depending on the types of land use in the watersheds. Land use/cover change and hydrology
