Abstract

Pine forests provide goods and services crucial to more than ten million people living in the middle-mountains (600-4000 m) of Nepal. These critically important forests are already often overexploited and could be at risk from future climate change. In order to investigate the combined effects of...

Abstract

Creep is a flow type of mass movement that may proceed as slowly as a few millimeters per year; it therefore requires measurements taken over many years to calculate its velocity. Although soil creep occurs very slowly, it is a major contributor to river silt, and may also enhance landslides. This...

Abstract

The study was carried out to describe the pine communities at Indus Kohistan valley in quantitative term. Thirty stands of relatively undisturbed vegetation were selected for sampling. Quantitative sampling was carried out by Point Centered Quarter (PCQ) method. Seven tree species were common in...

Abstract

Ring-width chronology of 211 years (AD 1730-2010) was developed using Himalayan Pine (Pinus wallichiana) collected from Ganji Skardu mono-specific Pinus wallichiana forest near the mix forest of Pinus wallichiana, Juniperus excelsa and Betula utilis on different aspect and slope angle. Chronology...
