About this book

The outcome of the expert's meeting that led to this book was to assess the status of faunal diversity in the Thar desert, a large desert that forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan. The book identifies gaps in research and the future lines of work for creating a database. Every chapter provides a complete account of species occurrence, their status and gaps in research. Future lines of research for each chapter have been highlighted.

Realising the rapid deterioration of the quality of the environment, the issues of species loss, reduction in the number of genes and genotypes in agriculturally important species etc. has aroused great apprehension. During the meeting, it was urged that all countries should take every reasonable measure for long-term conservation of biological resources within their jurisdiction, and list all the biological species occurring in a country to claim intellectual property rights over them.
