Freshwater Fishes of the Eastern Himalayas Book Review:

Freshwater Fishes of the Eastern Himalayas provides a guide to describe the internationally accepted methods used in the accurate identification of fishes, morphometry, i.e., body proportions, meristics, i.e., counts of countable characters, viz., scales, fin rays, pores, vertebrae etc., characters of bones wherever necessary, special characters, viz., serrations of fin spines, axillary lobes, lobes, color patterns, etc. All the available taxa of the region are covered, making this an essential reference that provides the original description of genera and species. Diagnostic characters in the book can be easily examined by an unaided eye or by a binocular dissecting microscope with transmitted light. Provides diagnostic characters which are unique for a species or a combination of characters to differentiate each species from its congeners Includes both verbal and technical aspects, along with color illustrations of the particular part of the fish showing the distinguishing character Presents diagnostic characters, illustrations or images of the fish and of its parts, showing the unique character and distribution to make it easy for species identification

Research Trends on Fish Fisheries in Mountain Waters of Eastern Himalayan Region Book Review:

This book contains a total of 25 unpublished research articles. In this edition, we have kept parity with each other’s outcomes, concisely in a unique style to depict the trends of research in the mountain fishery sector. We have also appended a list of contributors at the end of the book. The strategies observed in fisheries and aquaculture developments in the mountain waters clearly reveal that the on-going dimensions are nothing but broad ecosystem-based approached where both subsistence and commercial expansion of the systems could be possible. The research trend also directs that several fishery components, like ornamental fisheries, recreational fisheries, integrated fish farming, freshwater crab fishery, shellfish aquaculture, etc., exist. They may also be strengthened in mountain waters to improve the economic status of the mountain regions. Thus for exploiting huge mountain aqua-resources, Arunachal Pradesh targets the ecosystem-based approach of raising native mahseers, like Tor tor, Tor putitora, Neolissochilus hexagonolepis, and exotic species of trout in its mountain waters as a preliminary endevour.

Fishes of the Chindwin River Basin Book Review:

Fishes of the Chindwin River Basin is a piece of work on the freshwater fishes of the Chindwin River basin in the eastern Himalayas and Indo-Burma region. The region has purely isolated hill stream and thus have large numbers of endemic species having both ornamental and food values. The diversity is also attributed to the varied ecological conditions. The book provides taxonomy of fishes, key to species, distribution, local name, IUCN threat criteria and their status of 151 species of 76 genera under 27 families and 9 orders. The book also examines the current scenario of environmental challenges and anthropogenic threats and makes a presumptuous attempt towards sustainable use and conservation of the rich freshwater fish diversity found in the region.

Freshwater Fish Distribution Book Review:

With more than 29,000 species, fishes are the most diverse group of vertebrates on the planet. Of that number, more than 12,000 species are found in freshwater ecosystems, which occupy less than 1 percent of the Earth’s surface and contain only 2.4 percent of plant and animal species. But, on a hectare-for-hectare basis, freshwater ecosystems are richer in species than more extensive terrestrial and marine habitats. Examination of the distribution patterns of fishes in these fresh waters reveals much about continental movements and climate changes and has long been critical to biogeographical studies and research in ecology and evolution. Tim Berra’s seminal resource, Freshwater Fish Distribution,maps the 169 fish families that swim in fresh water around the world. Each family account includes the class, subclass, and order; a pronunciation guide to the family name; life cycle information; and interesting natural history facts. Each account is illustrated, many with historical nineteenth-century woodcuts. Now available in paperback, this heavily cited work in ichthyology and biogeography will serve as a reference for students, a research support for professors, and a helpful guide to tropical fish hobbyists and anglers.

Himalayan Fermented Foods Book Review:

The magnificent Himalayan Mountains, the highest in the world and home to the famed Mount Everest and K2, are also imbued with a rich diversity of ethnic fermented foods. Dr. Jyoti Prakash Tamang, one of the leading authorities on food microbiology, has studied Himalayan fermented foods and beverages for the last twenty-two years. His comprehensive volume, Himalayan Fermented Foods: Microbiology, Nutrition, and Ethnic Values catalogs the great variety of common as well as lesser-known fermented foods and beverages in the Himalayan region. This volume begins with an introduction to the Himalayas and the Himalayan food culture. Using a consistent format throughout the book, Dr. Tamang discusses fermented vegetables, legumes, milk, cereals, fish and meat products, and alcoholic beverages. Each chapter explores indigenous knowledge of preparation, culinary practices, and microorganisms for each product. Additional information on microbiology and nutritive value supplements each section, and discussions on ethnic food history and values as well as future prospects for these foods complete the coverage. Dr. Tamang demonstrates that fermentation remains an effective, inexpensive method for extending the shelf life of foods and increasing their nutritional content through probiotic function, and therefore remains a valuable practice for developing countries and rural communities with limited facilities.

Fisheries Development and Management in India 1785 1986 Book Review:

Fisheries play an important role in the economy of nations bordering the sea and this is especially true in a populous country like India where a large majority continues to live below the poverty line. Sea fishing has been an occupation with the coastal people of India since time immemorial forming an integral part of the maritime heritage. Machanisation has been introduced into the marine fishing with a view to exploit the fisheries potential all along the Indian coastline of 6,500 km by overcoming the deficiencies of the centuries old traditional fishing technology and to augment fish production with a higher fishing effort and also to raise the income levels and living standards of fishermen. The present book, based on the author’s doctoral dissertation, made a bold and pioneering attempt to evaluate the costs and earnings of mechanised and traditional boats for determining their relative operational efficiency and to examine intensively the effects of mechanisation on employment, income levels, consumption pattern and levels of living of fishermen and their social implications. While analysing the merits of the new fishing technology and also the reactions of different groups of fishermen to mechanisation, he spotlights the shortsightedness in the implementation of the programme of mechanisation resulting in a host of negative effects which have implications and also sets forth the valuable lessons which Indian experiences have to offer to the densely populated littoral nations in the Third World. To ensure enduring benefits to the vast majority of marine fishermen, the thesis underscores, among numerous other remedies the need for the provision of an intermediary technology, the need for the institutional support and marketing network and the need for the management of fisheries resources. It also calls for the policies to bring about socio-economic development of the fishing community on par with the rest of the society. All in all, a genuine contribution to knowledge of `grassroots' situations that will have enduring value and that can be useful in both academic and policy-formation circles.

CLIMATE CHANGE HIMALAYAN ECOSYSTEM INDICATOR BIO WATER RESOURCES Book Review:

Data/Information is the essential requirement for planning and development. “Climate Change & Himalayan ecosystem-indicator, Bio & water resources” consists basic information and data on glaciers, climate change indicators & projections, water resources and biodiversity hot spots ofMountHimalaya. Studies on “Climate change and the recession pattern of the Glaciers in the Himalaya” of this book concludes that “Possibility of the rivers in theHimalayasdrying up as a consequence of rapid degeneration of the glaciers is not borne out by the past history”. In this book , study conducted in watershed ofCentral Himalaya, a Decision Support System (DSS) is introduced as interactive tool that understands the problem and explores various courses about water demand and supply management to help decision makers. Himalayan foreland basin derivatives hold records of climatic changes in response to monsoonal circulation. In this study detrital records (11 to 5 Ma) of Ramgangasub-basinofHFBare focused to understand the climate aspect during its deposition. Himalayan biodiversity conservation is discussed in detail in this book. It infers that inHimalayawith the current technological capability, it is very certain that the present species extinction rate will overtake the biodiversity inventorization and characterization. Carbon sequestration potential of the forests ofHimalayais analyzed in this book. This book has a detailed account of the altitudinal shiftiness of butterflies due to increase of air temperature atWest Kamengdistrict of Arunachal Pradesh. Changes in NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) over a period of several years, is examined in this study to assess the changes caused by climate or socioeconomic aspects. This book will be a hand book for researchers, students, environmentalist and to administrators who are associated with multi dimensional decision support system in Mountain ecosystem.
