Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University is a public university located at Srinagar town in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand state in northern India. Named after Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna, the university is residential cum affiliating with jurisdiction over Garhwal district of the region. It is situated on the banks of the river Alaknanda in the mid-Himalayas.Inception of Garhwal University on Dec. 1 st 1973 was the fulfillment of a long cherished dream of the local people .The University was established under the provisions of Uttar Pardesh State Universities Act on 1.12.1973 and the Act come in force w.e.f. 1.12.1973.The name of the university was rechristened to Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna Garhwal University in 1989 in commemoration of the memory of a leading statesman of the country, the son of the soil, Hemwati Nandan Bahuguna, and subsequently established as central university under the provision of the Central Universities Ordinance, 2009, No.3 of 2009 published in the gazette of India, extraordinary Part-II, Sec-I, New Delhi, 15 January 2009. The University is among the ten largest Universities of the country with 3 campuses and more than 180 affiliated colleges and institutes and examining approximately 150000 students annually, providing higher education services in 7 out of the 13 Districts of the State of Uttarakhand.The University has state of art research facilities, some of the best teachers and close academic relations with a number of premier institutions. With its Headquarters at Srinagar some 108 K.M. from Rishikesh along the Delhi-Niti National Highway, Birla Campus at Srinagar , BGR Campus set on enticing mountain slopes at Pauri and SRT Campus at Badshahi Thaul amidst dense pine forest . the University offers a variety of higher learning courses and academic programmes through 10 Faculties. As a mark of the appreciation of its importance and achievements it has been upgraded as a Central University.The Student Apex Body of the University is the Apex body of student leaders presiding over all the student unions of the colleges that are affiliated to HNB Garhwal Central University. The members of student apex body are elected by an indirect election amongst the University Representatives coming from each college. Currently there are about 184 colleges affiliated to HNB Garhwal Central University. Wikipedia.

Mahseer species, the national heritage of India are globally acclaimed sport and table fish. Some mahseer species are now assessed as 'endangered', making it imperative to review historical and current state of knowledge on sport-related facets, taxonomy, fisheries ecology, biology, culture and conservation efforts. The review also examines the shortfalls in knowledge base and suggests issues that need to be addressed in future. The protection and conservation measures have fallen short of expectations as the pace of implementing mega-developmental projects exceeds natural recruitment rate of mahseers and lack of facilities for assisted propagation, at larger scale. © 2013 The National Academy of Sciences, India.

Hedychium spicatum Smith is a medicinally important species of the genus Hedychium commonly known as Vanhaldi, Palashi and Kapurkachari. This species occurs in subtropical and temperate Himalayan region between 1500 m and 2700 m altitudes. In the present study MS media supplemented with different growth regulators such as Kinetin and IAA were used for shoot elongation and root formation from in vitro shoot tip. Shoot elongation and rooting percentage (80%) was reported highest on medium with 5.0mM/l Kn and 1.0mM/l IAA. After rooting the complete plantlets were transferred to sterilized soil pots for acclimatization. About 40-50% plantlets survived well.

Defining the generalized charge, potential, current and generalized fields as complex quantities where real and imaginary parts represent gravitation and electromagnetism respectively, corresponding field equation, equation of motion and other quantum equations are derived in manifestly covariant manner. It has been shown that the field equations are invariant under Lorentz as well as duality transformations. It has been shown that the quaternionic formulation presented here remains invariant under quaternion transformations. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

The diagonal and non-diagonal parts for the Debye-Waller factor have been established using equation of motion technique of quantum dynamics and the Dyson equation approach. The double time temperature dependent phonon Green function has been taken to find the phonon linewidth and phonon shift. Renormalized mode frequency has been investigated in terms of electron-phonon coupling constant and temperature. The effect of electron-phonon interaction on the Debye-Waller factor has been studied in low temperature limit in low impurity concentration in semiconductor crystals.

The variations of spring water radon concentration and meteorological parameters were analysed in relation to the seismic activities in Garhwal Himalaya, India. The radon anomalies were classified on the basis of statistical treatment of the daily observations. The precise measurements of water discharge rate from the spring have been made along with radon measurements for earthquake precursory study. The earthquakes with epicentral distances less than 150 km were considered by an empirical relationship. Pre-, co-, and post-seismic changes in the radon concentration were taken carefully into account in the empirical relationship to establish this behaviour as a potential earthquake precursor. The empirical relationship has been validated by the radon data recorded from the spring waters. The magnitudes of the earthquakes were estimated by using the empirical relationship by introducing computed correlation coefficient of radon and meteorological parameters. The calculated magnitude of some local earthquakes matches exactly with the magnitude recorded by the laboratory seismograph. The possible mechanisms that may cause a radon anomaly are also discussed. © 2009 Versita Warsaw and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
