The national biodiversity data centre provides access to all validated biodiversity data through biodiversity maps, the on-line biodiversity data portal biodiversity data capture app, developed by compass informatics, allows recorders to capture details of any species they encounter in the field.
The himalayan alpine range is located in asia in the countries of nepal, tibet (china), india, pakistan and bhutan because the himalayan mountain range is at a high altitude the air is very thin the air is also very dry and has a very low precipitation level. While the overall biodiversity of the whole alpine region may not be affected dramatically by climate and land use changes, we anticipate that the regional diversity on the other hand, the centre of the plant remains warm compared to its extremities on a freezing cold day keeping most of its biomass. Biodiversity in the alpine area is very rich in habitats, species, and genes because of the severe climate of the alpine biome, plants and animals have developed adaptations to those conditions great variety of different living conditions and the small-scale habitat results in a large number of various.
