Expansion of range and habitat of Hangul (Kashmiri stag) to alpine meadows in the upper Dachigam National Park here is believed to recuperate ideal summer habitat for stag, which will lead to its long-term conservation and survival. The habitat used by Hangul in the past, presently finds its stray presence in those places.
With cases of bears straying out of their habitat and attacking people rising, mostly in the outlying areas close to forests, wildlife officials have started a pilot project of putting GPS collars around the necks of Himalayan black bears in a bid to study their movement and behavioural pattern.
The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of the litter chemistry of Ulmus villosa Brandis grown in the Dachigam National Park Srinagar J & K on their decomposition rates. Freshly fallen litter from the species were analyzed for N. Litter bag technique was used to determine their mass loss in the field for 1 year at monthly intervals.
