Higher altitudes have lower levels of oxygen, and hence animals living at such altitudes have to adapt. Having higher content of haemoglobin is one adaptation strategy used. In a recent study, scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, explore how blood parasite affect these high altitude birds.

Study from  Indian Institute of Technology and National Institute of Hydrology, Roorkee find the total area and number of glaciers in the Himalayas to decrease. The study shows that the glaciers are sensitive to climate change and the long term decrease in the extent of the glaciers could lead to flash floods and water shortage in the future.
