Aakib Farooq Matta

Abstract: The Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) comprises of Jammu and Kashmir in the north-west, Kumaun and Garhwal in the central region and Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Meghalaya and Derjeeling districts of West-Bengal in north-east. The region occupies 16.20 per cent of total geographical areas of country. The forest area of the total reporting area ranged from 10.14 per cent in Jammu and Kashmir and 90.38 per cent in Mizoram. 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.
