Article
Full-text available
Urban forest ecosystems, the structure, and functions therein are subjected to anthropogenic disturbances. Native and sensitive species from those forests might be lost due to such disturbances. At the same time, supplemented anthropogenic resources might create opportunities for exotic and invasive species. Although invasive species are considered...

Prevailing climate change is expected due to carbon dioxide emission to the atmosphere through soil respiration and perhaps the alteration in the terrestrial carbon cycle. The measurements to establish the effect and sensitivity of soil temperature, soil water content and plant biomass on soil respiration was performed in the subtropical grassland...

Article
Rising atmospheric CO2 and temperature are altering ecosystems’ carbon cycle. Soil respiration is a potential natural source of atmospheric CO2, an important terrestrial process to characterize soil as a carbon source or sink. Research carried was out in Annapurna Conservation Area (ACAP) as climate change poses special problems for mountain protec...

Plant–pollinator relationships are fundamentally important for the conservation of the terrestrial biodiversity that rural communities in low‐income countries rely upon. In Nepal, a country that is biologically rich but economically poor, Rhododendron forests provide a range of ecosystem services that are under threat from overexploitation and clim...

Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) are the forest products except timber used for various purposes from which economic status of the country can be increased through green growth based economy. The study was conducted in Baghmara Buffer Zone Community Forest for the inventory, to document various uses and find out the preferred NTFPs potential for...

Forests are the integral to the global carbon cycle. These ecosystems sequester carbon in the plant biomass and in the soil. The study was carried out in Linga Guthi Community Forest of Bhaktapur to estimate carbon Stock and radial growth of Pinus roxburghii through tree ring analysis. A total of 32 circular plots of 250 m 2 area were laid down ran...

Assessment of carbon stock in urban forest is essential to obtain the carbon sequestration rate and has important role in urban environment with play vital role to conserve biodiversity. This study was conducted in Gokarna protected forest, Kathmandu, to explore the forest carbon stock. A total of 60 circular plots of random sample with size of 250...

With the increased loss of plant biodiversity, the ex situ seed conservation has become of strategic importance. International treaties and conventions encourage more developed countries to cooperate in providing financial and other supports for the establishment and maintenance of ex situ conservation facilities in developing countries. In this re...

A study was carried out with an objective of long term monitoring on the impact of climate change in the high altitude forests in Sagarmatha National Park, Nepal. Two permanent plots (100 m × 100 m each) were established at Pangboche Yaren (4,050 m asl) and Debuche (3,850 m asl, timberline) in 2007. Six tree species were recorded in the plots with...

The growth of urban population in Kathmandu has resulted in increased degradation of its forests and consequently increased recreational pressure on them. Ranibari forest (area 7.6 ha), situated at the north west region of Kathmandu valley represents a typical such forest in Kathmandu. Quantitative study was carried to assess the structural dimensi...

Increased human pressure and urbanization has led into the formation of forest islands in the Kathmandu valley. Bhandarkhal forest (area: 6.75 ha), situated in the eastern part of Pashupati area represents a typical such forest Kathmandu. The sandy loam soil in the forest is described as characteristic of lacustrine sedments. The soil was slightly...
