Long term ecological monitoring of biodiversity is practicable with an inventory of its floral and faunal diversity. With this view, the documentation of biodiversity of the two fenced areas of Dhanolti reserve forest of Mussoorie forest division has been prepared.

Garbage dumped in the open near a popular temple on Mussoorie Road has not only damaged the local environment but is also encouraging monkeys to settle in this area.

Two microwatersheds namely Arnigad and Bansigad near Mussoorie, equipped with hydrometeorological instruments were selected to monitor the impact of forest cover on stream discharge. Arnigad microwatershed is having dense forest cover and Bansigad is with degraded forest.

Rapid visual screening technique has been resorted to for assessing seismic vulnerability and risk in the Himalayan township of Mussoorie that falls in Zone IV of the Earthquake Zoning Map of India.

Nainital: It may not be good news for tourists but for Mussoorie it could literally mean a breath of fresh air. The Uttarakhand government has decided to introduce eco tax upon entry into the Queen of Hills with immediate effect, which is a first in the history of Mussoorie. It will be in line with the Naini lake tax charged from tourists in Nainital.

Invasive weeds have become a major environmental concern at local, national, regional and global level. Very recently, the authors have noticed an exotic temperate weed in the Mussoorie hills i.e. Stevia ovata. It is spreading in moist, South-West hill slopes.

Soil and vegetation study in relation to parent material was conducted in the Mussoorie Forest Division, Uttarakhand.

ONGC is planning to set up a small demonstration wind energy and solar plant at the hill resort of Mussoorie.

DEHRA DUN: Conquerors of ecologically ravaged sites across the country will assemble to pool their experiences and give a new direction to scientific rejuvenation of ecologically degraded sites at a three-day eco-exhibition and seminar to be held at the Territorial Army Group Headquarters in Lucknow from March 21.
