The total human population in the region is 6.28 per cent of the countys total population. The age old harmony between man and the environment has been altered and shaken significantly in recent days through a variety of biotic activities. The increasing ferocity and frequency of floods, landslides and rock-falls, deforestation and change in climate have clearly shown the fall of Himalayan eco-system. An attempt is, therefore, made to convey consequence of the biotic interventions on the Himalayan eco-system.
