Patterns of diversity and conservation status of freshwater fishes in the tributaries of river Ramganga in the Shiwaliks of the Western Himalaya – A paper in Current Science
This paper is based on a short study to assess the species diversity and composition of freshwater fishes in three tributaries of Ramganga. Amita Bhaduri posted 10 years 10 months ago

 One tributary was within a protected area (PA; Corbett National Park); the other two were outside the PA (Lansdowne Forest Division). Cast nets were used for fish sampling, which was done from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
