The Himalayas are home to a great diversity of fauna as well as flora, making the region one of the richest biodiversity hotspots of the world. Inaccessibilty and security concerns limited the focus of science on the species of Himalayas. The book “Habitat utilization by Asiatic black bear-a study in Dachigam national park, India” is an attempt made to find out the rate of habitat use by Asiatic black bear among available habitats during spring. The standard methods such as line transects for habitat use pattern and quadrat sampling for vegetation classification are used. The utilization measured on the basis of direct and indirect evidences. The book comes out with the identification of six available habitats and among them lower temperate habitat as the preferred habitat. It suggests better management of the ecosystem for the healthy population of Asiatic black bear in the park to resolve conflict with humans.
Flood is the most common of all environmental hazards.The reason lies because of the widespread geographical distribution of rivers basins from mountainous terrain to flood plains, the low lying coasts and deltas.Pakistan is also a country which faces flood hazard Periodically. Indus river basin is the main flood prone area which occupies two-third area of Pakistan. The South-Asiatic monsoon winds bring torrential rains from July to September. The recent floods occurred in August 2010 and August –September 2011 were worst floods in the history of Pakistan.It affected about 20 million people,killed 3000, destroyed 1 million houses,displaced 10 millions,and millions were affected by water-borne diseases, lack of food, drinking water and shelter. It is estimated that that about 130 million hectare of croplands had been inundated. The United Nations called these floods as most disastrous floods in the history of Pakistan which smashed economy of the country. Urban flooding is another growing catastrophic challenge in the mega cities of the World. Karachi, the mega city of Pakistan has a disastrous impacts of flooding due to sprawling
Shorttitle The Asiatic one-horned Rhinoceros/ Greater Indian One-horned Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) is endangered species of Indian mega fauna.Once Indian One-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) roamed over the Indus, Gangetic to Brahamputra flood plains of the Indian sub- continent.At present the Great Indian One Horned Rhinoceros has total population of about 2800 animals in India and Nepal. In India, currently its population is restricted to four natural populations in Assam viz Kaziranga, Manas, Orang (Rajiv Gandhi WLS) and Pobitora, two natural populations in West Bengal viz Jaldapara and Gorumara and one re- introduced population in Dudhwa NP and one migratory population in Katerniaghat UP.In Nepal,the three rhino populations are in Royal Chitwan NP, Royal Bardia N.P and Sulkhlaphanta WLS. The Rhino of Royal Chitwan N.P. is a natural population while Royal Bardia NP and Sukhlaphanta WLS have the re- introduced population. The Kaziranga National Park in Assam (India) has the highest population of Rhino (2084) and Pobitora WLS (84 rhinos in 16 sq km area) followed by Royal Chitwan N.P. in Nepal (408 rhinos) in 2010.
In 1832, William MacGillivray published this abridged version of the explorer Alexander von Humboldt's Personal Narrative of Travels to the Equinoctial Regions of the New Continent During the Years 1799-1804. This edition covers Humboldt's trip to South America together with his later expeditions to the Ural Mountains and Caspian Sea.
Part A and part B is the Studies on the Chemical Constituents of Ocimum basilicum and centella asiatica. As a result seven pure compounds were obtained from Ocimum basilicum which include four new compounds namely basilimoside (1), basilavone (2), ferulate (3) and ocimueugenol (4) and three known constituents. Studies on the Chemical Constituents of Centella asiatic afford two new compounds named as asiaticin (I) and centellicin (II). Part C is the Synthesis of Lawsonicin and its related dihydrobenzofuran derivative The acetyl derivative of lawsonicin caused 100% inhibition of growth of Mycobacterium tuberculi at 6.25 µg/ml. Due to its potential biological activity and in order to confirmthe structure we chose to synthesize lawsonicin andidentified its further biological studies.

The Asiatic Wild Dog (Cuon alpinus) or Dhole is one of the least studied social carnivores in the world. IUCN estimated its wild population fewer than 2500 and listed it as endangered animal. This book presents the first hand information regarding dholes from Nepal. Dhole study has been carried out in KCA which lies in north-eastern part on Nepal linking India at east and China at north. First camera trapping effort in KCA becomes successful to establish the presence of dholes in KCA, Nepal. Dholes are only canids distributed from tropical heat to the freezing cold. This book provides the information regarding status, distribution, habitat preference on the basis of camera trapping records, and reported killings and assessment of human-dhole conflict on the basis of interview surveys, and field observation. This book is useful to those who are interested to know wild dogs, their behavior, and ecological importance in nature. Furthermore, this book would be valuable for researchers who are researching wild dogs.
Among the world?s poorest countries, Bangladesh is home to one of the richest treasures-prized Black Bengal goats. Among the Asiatic countries, Bangladesh, a tropical agro-based developing country, possesses the third largest repository of goats, with a population of more than 34 million heads, according to the FAO. This figure represents more than 57% of total livestock in Bangladesh. More than 90% of the goats of the country are of the Black Bengal breed. More than 98% of goats are owned by the small, marginal and landless farmers in the villages. One of the infectious diseases, which are a major constraint for Black Bengal goat productivity, is brucellosis. Brucellosis in Black Bengal goat is caused by Brucella melitensis. Brucellosis is considered by the Food & Agricultural Organization (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO) & the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) as the most widespread bacterial zoonosis worldwide. This book illustrates the introduction, diagnosis and seroprevalence of brucellosis in Black Bengal goat. The exciting new study shows a new way of developing the goat industry & prevention & control of brucellosis nationally and at international level.
The Gir forests were constituted into wildlife sanctuary in 1965 and its core area notified as national park in 1975. The protection thus accorded to the area enhanced the flora and fauna attributes. However this fame rested largely on its being the last refuge of Asiatic lion, and the lion shows organized by the forest department became very popular with the visitors where they could see and photograph this majestic beast with relative ease. It also made the Gir, one of the most well-known and visited protected areas in the country. The lion show came to be seen as an over exposure, causing apprehensions about animal loosing its natural instincts, and the shows were stopped in 1988.Tourism receives about 2 million visitors annually. With this sector, a trend described as nature tourism and ecotourism. Within the Gir protected area, there are 26 temple complexes where more than 1.5 lakh pilgrims visit annually. Of these however, only three may be considered the major ones – Tulsishyam, Kankai, and Banej which together account for most of the pilgrim traffic in the PA.The current study was to find out the impact of tourism on Gir PA.

The seventeenth century is important for the Dutch for many reasons. This century is considered as the golden age of economic affluence. During this period the Dutch achieved considerable success in maritime trade. This was also the century when many Dutch people made their journey overseas, especially to Asia as Company (VOC) soldiers, sailors, merchants, serviceman and missionary. This stimulated the interaction between the Dutch and the Asians in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. During their stays in Asia they engaged with the local society, culture, customs, and religion and so on. Through their interaction with local society they earned considerable knowledge of Asiatic regions. Upon their return home they began to publish their experiences on Asia. The book studies a specific seventeenth-century Dutch travel account titled Vervarelyke schip-breuk van‘T Oost-Indisch Jacht Ter Schelling written by a Dutch sailor Frans Jansz. van der Heiden. The book demonstrates that the seventeenth-century Dutch travel literature produced the bulk of knowledge on Asia, which can be used for reconstructing early modern history of Asia.
Kuno Wildlife Sanctuary,M.P., India is the most promising location to re-establish a free ranging population of critically endangered Asiatic Lions from Gir National Park, India where they are highly over-populated. In preparation for reintroduction of Lions, all the human settlements from the Sanctuary area have been relocated and the sanctuary was made free from human settlements and domesticated livestock. Frequent monitoring and assessment of sanctuary's landcover and wild animals habitat is necessary for immediate appropriate measurements which are very costly and time consuming. This book,therefore addresses the advanced technology and methods of Remote Sensing & GIS to the assessment and conservation of biodiversity,habitat characteristics and species population of the sanctuary in a very cost-effective ways.The methods provided are very simpler and cost effective and will provide light to wildlife researchers and scholars interested in biodiversity conservation.
Matt Reddy and the crew of the old Asiatic Fleet destroyer USS Walker, have been mysteriously transported into an alternate version of earth, where WWII is no longer raging, and have been trying to find a new place for themselves in this strange new world. Now, along with their Lemurian and Imperial allies, they fight desperately to keep the reptilian Grik from reconquering the Lemurians' ancestral Home on Madagascar. Exhausted, far from support, and wildly outnumbered, the odds seem longer than ever before. Meanwhile in the Americas, Don Hernan and the evil Dominion have gathered their forces to annihilate Harvey Jenks' Second Fleet--and General Shinya's sickness-ravaged Corps behind the walls of "Fort Defiance." Esshk intrigues to secure his position of supremacy among the Grik, while Hisashi Kurokawa conspires with a shadowy power with an agenda all its own. As the war teeters on a knife-edge balance, a tipping point may have been reached at last--that could go either way. And with the "Demon Murphy" rampant and impartial, cold steel and hot-blooded valor remain the ultimate weapons.
