The State of Ecology of the Tibetan Plateau

L.M.S. Palni‚ Rebon Banerjee Dhar‚ O.P. Tandon (Eds.)


About the Book

<p>Tibet is one of the world’s most unique biodiverse regions in the world. It boasts of the world’s steepest and longest canyon and the tallest peak, Mount Everest. It is also referred to as the “Third Pole” as it has the largest perennial ice mass on the planet after the two Poles. Degradation of Tibet’s ecology directly impinges on Asia’s ecological well being and have resulted in Tibet warming at almost three times the global average. This holds major long-term implications for the triple role Tibet plays as Asia’s main freshwater repository, largest water supplier and principal rainmaker.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Tibetan Plateau is&nbsp; therefore of invaluable strategic and ecological significance. This volume examines the state of the ecology of the Tibetan Plateau and is a useful contribution to enhancing international understanding of the environmental equation between Tibet and the rest of Asia and the ecological centrality of the Tibetan Plateau.&nbsp;</p>
