Abstract:

The studies on diversity of order Charadriiformes (Aves) in Chandertal Wildlife Sanctuary, covering an area of 38.53 sq. km. at an elevation more than 4200 meters in Trans Himalayas is above tree line in which various field trips were organized in different months of year except winters (November to May) due to excessive snowfall at Rohtang pass and Kunzam pass resulting into inaccessible roads. Since the biodiversity decreases with increasing altitude above tree line, similarly our study revealed the presence of only four species belonging to three families of order Charadriiformes viz. Gallinago solitaria; Calidris minuta (Scolopacidae), Charadrius mongolus (Charadriidae) and Himantopus himantopus (Recurvirostridae).
