Balancing the ecology and development of forests in Himachal Pradesh

Indian Journal of Regional Science 25(2): 61-71

Balancing the ecology and development of forests in Himachal Pradesh

This paper analyses the balance in ecology and development of forests in Himachal Pradesh, India. It examines the geographical and forest area, the livestock position and the biomass consumption in the state, estimates the cost of domestic animals to the environment and finally suggests measures for promoting better ecosystems. The area available for grazing has been reduced, thus the only remaining alternative is to maximize forage production within the available resources.
