Nepal is a microcosm for the Himalayas and this book, a companion volume to the Flora of Nepal, provides the definitive account of the country’s environment. It includes contributions from more than forty international experts describing the region’s geology, geomorphology, hydrology, climate, soils, evolutionary biology, ecology, palynology, ethnobotany, anthropology and conservation. <p> <p> The publication of Nepal: An Introduction to the natural history, ecology and human environment of the Himalayas is the direct culmination of four years of work, but it is built on the four decade career of the lead editor, Georg Miehe, one of today’s leading authorities on the ecology of the Himalayas. The forty five other authors who have contributed to the book represent many of the foremost experts on the Himalayas. <p> <p> he book includes a wealth of stunning pictures and although it is primarily written for a professional audience, it will have wider appeal to others with an interest in the region.
