It contains a collection of papers and scholarly articles by ecologists, natural resource managers, and other professionals working on the high-altitude rangelands of the HKH region. It is divided into four sections. The first section focuses on a review of high-altitude rangelands and their interfaces. It discusses the definition of ecosystem interface at a landscape scale and provides detailed information on alpine ecosystem interfaces considering the current state of knowledge on the biophysical features and major conservation issues and management strategies in the transboundary landscapes of the HKH region. The second section highlights the distribution patterns and climatic parameters of one of most important alpine ecotones, the timberline, which is considered as an interface between grasslands and forests in high-altitude regions, the carbon and nutrient supply mechanism for timberline formation, and climate change and human disturbance leading to shifting of timberline ecotone. The third section focuses on wetlands in the region, in particular the causes of peatland degradation under overgrazing and emission dynamics of greenhouse gases from peatlands impacted by climate change. The final section provides an overview of the ecosystem services provided by the high-altitude rangelands.
