  • This title analyses the forest types of this Himalayan kingdom and their breeding bird communities. The book identifies the threats facing the forests, the important unprotected forests and their value for bird conservation, and recommends future protected areas.

    Founded in 2000, Himalayan Nature (HN) is a development and conservation research institute, working for sustainable livelihoods of Himalayan communities,
    as well as initiating scientific research on Himalayan biodiversity and the broader environment. It is an independent, not-for-profit organization actively working on emerging issues related to the development and conservation of natural resources, and sustainable livelihoods of people in the Himalayan region. Being a science-based organization it takes an independent view of livelihood options provided to local communities and biodiversity conservation issues. HN provides sound advice on aspects of social development and environmental management to government authorities Himalayan Nature and other concerned agencies. Periodically, HN releases statements to help improve awareness among the public and policy makers on sustainable livelihood issues and environmental challenges. The organization is supported by a host of internationally renowned scientists, Livelihood experts and conservation who have extensive experience in natural history, improving livelihoods of Himalayan communities and ecology of the broader Himalayan region. HN works closely with other organizations with a similar vision, complementing their work and exchanging information. In addition, we collaborate with several local organizations working in various parts of the country. HN is based in Kathmandu and has a field study center in Koshi.

    Hem Sagar Baral

    Hem Sagar Baral was born in the far lowlands of eastern Nepal and on the edge of the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve. Spending his childhood in the lowland jungles of the Terai, Hem developed an early interest in birds and wildlife. When he left school, his ornithological expertise and enthusiasm gained him a place as a full time naturalist at Royal Chitwan National Park. During his four years there, Hem impressed many groups with his knowledge and manner. He left Chitwan to complete a diploma in geology at Tribhuvan University and continued to lead many groups whilst studying. He has trekked in several areas of Nepal and has served in important posts of Bird Conservation Nepal - most recently as its President. He has extensively studied birdlife in Nepal - especially the lowland grassland birds. He is awarded a PhD for his work on the lowland grassland birds in Nepal. He is the first and only Nepalese ornithologist with a PhD. He has been editing Nepal's first and only quarterly ornithological bulletin Danphe and also the journal Ibisbill since 1992. In the past he has worked as a volunteer warden for RSPB in Scotland, BirdLife International, IUCN-Nepal and on other conservation projects. Hem has found four new species of grassland birds for Nepal; Jerdon’s Babbler, Finn’s Weaver, Singing Lark and Moustached Warbler. Hem is a founding member of Nature Safari Tours and has written several papers and books on avifauna and their conservation in Nepal.
