Abstract
    or more than a century, the Zoological Survey of India has been conducting faunal survey explorations, research and documentation of the faunal diversity of the varied biogeographic zones of the country, including the Indian Himalayan Region. A careful assessment of the faunal diversity currently known from the Indian Himalaya, one of the most significant biogeographic zones of the country, revealed that the level of faunal diversity richness of this biotic zone is very substantial. So far, no one has made an attempt to consolidate that information based on authentic validation of the faunal diversity hitherto known or reported from this region. The Zoological Survey of India (ZSI) took up this task with the involvement of all the taxonomic experts of various taxa, from Protozoa to Mammalia. It was an inclusive process combining the extraction of metadata of species – from the available relevant literature – documented or recorded from the Indian Himalayan biogeographic zone, integration of the up-to-date data on the exploratory inventorying work on taxa of this region by ZSL researchers, and collation of the most-updated taxonomic nomenclature in species-validation of taxaof diverse groups, etc.
