Conservation implications of plant endemism in high-altitude Himalaya


Conservation implications of plant endemism in high-altitude Himalaya



Current Science 82(2): 141-148



ISSN/ISBN: 0011-3891

The paper analyses the nature and extent of information available on various aspects of plant endemism in the Himalaya. The study showed that high-altitude Himalaya is rich in plant endemic diversity and temperate families showing higher than expected level of endemicity. As elsewhere, the endemic species mostly occupy drier habitats, especially in the alpine zone. Among endemics, cytogeographic studies reveal that schizoendemics constitute the largest group.
