Abstract

The land-use / cover changes from forest to other uses have been widespread in the last few decades in the Himalayan region. Therefore, this study was designed to understand the different ecological processes in the sacred Khecheopalri Lake watershed in relation to land-use / cover change. The study investigates : precipitation, discharge and sediment movement; overland flow and soil loss; precipitation partitioning pathways in forest and agroforestery systems and the factors contributing to the development of bog and peatland-lake systems
