Nancy W. Axinn From the Foothills of the Himalayas

2077 руб.
Back before cell phones, computers, e-mail, and even bridges in the Chitwan Valley in Nepal, Nancy Axinn and her husband worked with agricultural education programs. From the Foothills of the Himalayas is written upon reflection of the notes and letters Axinn penned from 1976 to 1978 while living in rural Nepal. Axinn's small notebook was never out of reach as she traveled in Nepal. Setting off on nearby roads, Axinn climbed steep mountain trails, often wading through rivers to reach the remote schools where she coached prospective teachers of agriculture. Contact with the outside world was by letter, so after each one was written, it went by road or local plane to Axinn's office at Tribhuvan University in Kathmandu. It was then sent by air mail to her daughter in the United States. From the Foothills of the Himalayas provides a firsthand account of the spectacular countryside of rural Nepal, Axinn's agricultural work in the area, and her challenges in cultural adaptation.

An Illustrated Guide to British Upland Vegetation is the first comprehensive, single book on plant communities in the British uplands. It provides concise descriptions of all currently recognised British upland vegetation types. Written by a team comprising some of the most experienced upland field botanists and ecologists in the UK, the book brings together all of the upland communities described in the National Vegetation Classification together with a number of previously undescribed assemblages of plant species.A key enables the reader to classify vegetation in the field. Each vegetation type is described clearly and vividly, with guidance on how to differentiate between similar looking communities. There are detailed sections on the ecology, conservation and management of each community, and up-to-date distribution maps.This is the outcome of many years of field work in the British uplands, much of it supported by the UK Government conservation agencies. The book will be an indispensable guide for anyone with a keen interest in the uplands, notably ecologists, land managers, lecturers, and students, as well as the many organisations actively involved in this special environment.'Using the Rodwell classification, the authors have blended in their own ecological expertise to produce - at last - an account of British upland vegetation which is readable, visual and comprehensive.

Anthropogenic and climate change impacts on forest ecosystems can be monitored by use of vegetation maps. Accuracy of a revised vegetation map for moist and dry forest types in Imenti was tested to understand their vegetation dynamics. The mapped vegetation boundary of the two forests was marked using Map source software and then loaded into GPS. Five sampling sites were randomly selected in each forest type. Trees with DBH > 5cm and height >5 m and saplings were recorded from quadrats of 0.16 ha and 0.01ha respectively. A 4 x 100 m belt transects were used for profiling the vegetation. The two forest types were separated df 1, p < 0.05 by ordination analysis. Eleven characteristic species occurred in moist forest compared to ten in dry forest. Height and DBH frequency graphs showed that more trees occurred in lower classes while DBH histograms assumed an inverse J-shaped distribution. Cordia africana and Olea europaea had highest value index in moist and dry forest respectively. The accuracy of the vegetation map was confirmed to be correct. There is need to enhance security patrols and involve the local communities in managing the forest.

In the present context of blackouts and severe power shortage it is only explicable that Nepal, among other alternative energy sources, is trying to develop its own wind power. However, lots of factors seem to be impeding its development. Therefore, in order to understand and explore the possible routes to success for the wind power development in Nepal, this book looks into the close neighbor, India and investigates its relative success in Wind Industry. Upon analysis on Indian success on wind technology with regard to the contribution of low carbon technology transfer, it was observed that India effectively assimilated wind technology from abroad following a range of initiatives. Further, exploring the issues related to wind power development in Nepal, illustrated that similar initiatives are required in Nepal as well. Meanwhile, one could also agnize the potential of Nepal-India collaboration in the development process of wind technology in Nepal. This book is thus expected to be useful to wind energy developers and promoters trying to bring wind technology into mainstream in the developing countries and also to low carbon technology transfer advocates.

Mromba Clement Mitigation of Effects of Water Abstraction on the Riparian Vegetation

8639 руб.
Water and vegetation are vital for sustaining life. However, they are becoming more stressed following population growth and associated water demands. As a result, most continent discharges are classified as "moderate" to "highly threatened" by human activities, partly through water abstraction. Bwathonaro river in Meru, Imenti North District of Eastern Kenya is not exception. The river is experiencing over abstraction driven by a number of forces, including increased irrigation farming. Consequently, downstream flows have now reduced to zero during dry season, thus causing great effects to the riparian vegetation. The severity of the effects has necessitated the adoption of mitigation measures. This book describes measures taken to mitigate the effects of water abstraction on riparian vegetation of Bwathonaro river. With increase in management efforts, the results showed progressive amplification on timing and duration of river flow peaking and retrogressive behavior of riparian vegetation. The results are useful for planning and decision making on viable measures which can reduce the effects of water abstraction on the riparian vegetation of rivers with similar characteristics.

This disease is an important cause of permanent and progressive disability when it is not treated in an early stage. Leprosy control is an instrument to find and treat all existing leprosy cases in a certain area, to bring them under treatment in order to prevent the disabling consequences of the disease. It is essential to consider the cultural, the social, the political, and the economical aspects in the context of leprosy in Nepal to meet the real need of each individual patient. Due to the agricultural background of almost 93 % of Nepal's population, this field needs special attention as a tool for adequate rehabilitation. This paper aims to provide a solution providing a concept for agricultural leprosy rehabilitation. In chapter five rehabilitation strategies for clients with agricultural background are lined out regarding the specific situation in Nepal. Possibilities for the integration of agricultural topics in occupational therapy are discussed, as well as agricultural business creation suitable for disabled clients. Chapter six contains two curricula. The first curriculum deals with a kitchen garden training in occupational therapy and the second curriculum with a curriculum for a beekeeping training as a business creation measure.

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2013 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, University of Notre Dame, course: Peace and Conflict Studies, language: English, abstract: This study focuses on post-accord human rights situation in Nepal and attempts to explain geographical and demographic variations in pattern of violence perpetrated by various non-state actors, the Maoist party and the state. Analysis performed in this study confirms most of the expectations regarding susceptibility of districts and geographic/development regions given certain population characteristics, emergence of non-state armed groups along with proliferation of weapons in post-accord period. The overall pattern suggests that human rights violation incidents had declined after signing of an agreement but non-state actors were responsible for most of human rights violation acts in post-accord Nepal. Findings from this study confirms early studies that on human rights situation in Nepal. Nevertheless, this study provides more sophisticated analysis and suggests where one would expect to see more human rights violation and who would be most likely to perpetrate acts of human rights violations.

Nepali migration into Darjeeling district is an age old phenomena. In the Pre Colonial period it was just movement of people across boundary. During the period of unification of Nepal by the Gorkhas in the late 18th century, several members of the Nepal royalty, nobles and elites continued their political exile to India. Even in the late 18th and early 19th centuries- i.e. at the time of expansion of the Gorkhas many Nepalis moved to India. In the modern period Nepali migration to India has become a regular feature from the 19th century onwards. Nepali migration to India was actively encouraged by the British out of their colonial interests and was intertwined with their overall policies towards both Nepal and this part of India including Sikkim. Nepal’s own economic tribulations provided the push factors and colonial Darjeeling’s socio-economic condition with abundant land, economic opportunity and colonial policy created the pull factors, thereby attracting large-scale Nepali immigration. Post colonial phase also witnessed a volume of migration in the district though at present migration from Nepal is becoming insignificant.

More than 85 percent of total energy in Nepal comes from traditional biomass energy which leads to environmental degradation, ecological imbalance and adverse human health impacts. This calls for biogas with the associated carbon revenue and other quantifiable tangible benefits, as the best applicable alternative energy. The main objective of the study was to study the prospects of biogas installation in terms of the socio-economic and environmental benefits to the rural community of Nepal. The book is based on comparative study among Biogas and Non-Biogas Households in Nepal. And critically analyses primary data for calculation of GHG emission (IPCC guidelines), payback period and carbon abatement revenue. This book analyses the challenges and opportunities of biogas plant as an alternative energy source and has attempted to address the invaluable information for the success of biogas promotion as an eco-friendly approach. This book will be especially useful to economists, policy makers and analysts, researchers, programme and project implementers, social workers and administrators especially in the public and voluntary sectors.

For sustainable management of forest vegetation in the area, geology, soil and biota are important factors. Scientific investigation may be helpful in improving and regenerating degraded hills by protection of slopes through raising vegetation suited to parent material and soil. Soils are considered to be our basic treasure. Man is dependent on soil and productive soil depends on man. Each of the different kinds of soils requires special management practice which changes from season to season. The knowledge of mineralogical behavior of soils at good natural sites and at degraded sites opens at possibilities of optimal management inputs to augment production of the biomass from good site as well as from degraded site after suitable amelioration. In the present intensified programme of raising large scale plantation, especially of fast growing species, the fertility potential depends largely on the mineralogical composition of the soil. The underlying parent material plays a vital role in determining the success or other-wise of the plantations especially over a number of rotations in a given year. This book provides in-depth knowledge to the managers, foresters and land users to have a thorough knowledge about the content and nature of minerals present in the soil in diagnosing the fertility status and other soil-plant-parent material relationship in forestry.

Das Leben wäre ohne die Kraft der Sonne nicht möglich, geschweige denn vorstellbar. Nun stellt sich die Frage, welche Faktoren überhaupt zum Klima gehören und wie sie sich im Raum auf die Vegetation auswirken. Diese Fragen sollen in dieser Ausarbeitung näher beleuchtet werden, um Licht ins Dunkle zu bringen. Dabei sollen die Bodenstandortfaktoren Nährstoffe, Bodenfeuchte und Luft außerhalb dieser Betrachtung stehen.Zunächst wird auf die Standortfaktoren für die Vegetation eingegangen. Anschließend werden die einzelnen Klimazonen der Erde vorgestellt. Es soll gezeigt werden, welche Charakteristiken die Vegetation in den einzelnen Klimazonen vorhanden sind.

Climate change is among the major global issues of the 21st century. Anthropogenic activities have led to notable changes in the earth’s climate including increase in the global temperature over the 20th century. Carbon sequestration is the long-term storage of carbon in oceans, soils, vegetation (especially forests), and geologic formations. Although oceans store most of the Earth’s carbon, soils contain approximately 75% of the carbon pool on land — three times more than the amount stored in living plants and animals. Therefore soil is an important component for carbon sequestration in terrestrial ecosystems. This book is an attempt to know the impacts of anthropogenic disturbances on the vegetation patterns. It assesses different parameters of the soil especially the percent organic carbon. This book can serve as baseline information for the upcoming studies and research work in the coming years.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Electrotechnology, grade: 1.7, Brandenburg Technical University Cottbus, course: Electric Power Engineering - Micro Hydro-power and its grid connection, language: English, abstract: 1. IntroductionGotikhel Hydropower Plant (GHP) is one of the nearest Isolated Micro Hydropower Plant (MHP) from the main city out of 650 isolated MHPs available in Nepal which still supplies electrical power to 173 Households, one hull machine and one school. The extension of national grid has made life of MHPs insecure as consumers want the energy from more reliable source i.e. from national grid. In the context of Nepal, especially in rural areas, construction of MHPs are very costly and because of unplanned extension of national grid, some of MHPs are in closing conditions and same cases will continue more in future. So, there is a huge risk in big investments and valuable efforts of villagers. Synchronization of MHPs to the national grid will be the ultimate solution for the existence of MHPs in Nepal. So, this Master Thesis will also focus on grid connection of GHP and consequent impacts on technical as well as financial sectors before and after the grid connection of GHP. 2. ObjectivesTaking GHP as a private/ community pilot project for grid connection in Nepal, the following objectives of grid-connected MHPs has been generalized:• To ensure optimum use of national resource and fulfill the possible new demand of energy in rural areas sinc...
