Abstract

Ecological Adaptation to Altitude of Algal Communities in the Swat Valley (Hindu Cush Mountains, Pakistan)

The biodiversity of algal communities in the Hindu Cush Mountain areas was formed under natural climatic and anthropogenic impacts. The algal diversity in the rivers of the southern Hindu Cush region is, however, still under investigated. While algal communities of some rivers and parks in Pakistan were sporadically studied, ourknowledge of regional algal distribution is far from exhaustive. The Swat River Valley is located in an inaccessible mountainous area and has therefore been insufficiently studied.
