A Study of Climate Change in Himachal Pradesh

Authors(1) :-Nameeta Devi

The natural ecosystem in the north western Himalayas has experienced dramatic changes over the past fifty years. It has been observed that each degree rise in temperature would displace many land species tolerance limits to nearly 125 km toward poles. The drier and warmer weather will ultimately result in shorter growing season and lesser crop yields which will adversely influence the livelihood of millions of people.
