As you know that many countries in the world still practicing shifting cultivation. The Socio-economic life of the tribal people in Mizoram, North East India, has also always been centered on jhum or shifting cultivation.

This book is an attempt to bring out the basic issues in the field of tourism management in India with special reference to the state of Rajasthan. The dismal performance of the present tourism management and ensuring administration problems are major hurdles for healthy growth of tourism in the state. Managerial inefficiency with deficiency of a concerted tourism policy and proverbial ineffectiveness of the public sector are the major imponderables for the development of a sound tourism management here.

The corporate’s main objectives are to establish, develop and execute projects and schemes that facilitate and accelerate tourism to the state.But in present scenario, it seems that RTDC has not been able to fulfill its basic aim.

Red algae (Rhodophyta) are marine and only a few grow in freshwater-bodies of which Lemanea is one such species found in freshwater rivers of Manipur, NE India. There is lack of information about the ecology, distribution, production scenario and nutritional profile of the plant though the plant is utilized traditionally by local communities as food delicacy since centuries in Manipur. Absence of algae throughout river stretches, prevalence in winter and preference by locals as food delicacy lead us to undertake the detailed investigation on occurrence of Lemanea, understand its present range and conservation status provide nutritional profile in attempting to understand the resources of potentially valuable products it may contain. The study suggest that these alga which are scarcely available during their short growing period in fresh water flowing ecosystems also have considerable potential for biochemicals and minerals component that may find application in food and pharmaceutical industry as a source in preparation of nutrient supplements and medicine. Chapters in the book focus on the distribution and ecology, nutrient profile and need for conservation of Lemanea.

Tourism is one of the service sector industries and service sector plays important role in Indian economy which accounted alone 55.1% in 2009. Tourism is the fastest growing industry of the world today, second only to the Oil industry. Since it is "an industry without Chimneys" its significance in fostering development without destruction can be well appreciated in general and in a developing country like India in particular. It is an invisible export as a country earns foreign exchange without exporting tangible goods. Rajasthan, for that matter, has a great tourism potential, particularly on account of its geographical setting, glorious past, colourful atmospheres, gay and spirited men and women, and above all its natural beauty of hills and mountains, sand dunes, historical monuments and relics and a dreamlike quality of its fascinating character. India is one of the few countries of the world endowed with an array of tourism resources - from bio-cultural diversity to a wealth of histories and antiquities.

Livestock plays an important role in the economy of Mizopam as crop production is still traditional. Pig occupies a unique place, as pig rearing is considered to be the most encouraging and appropriate livestock enterprise. The present study was undertaken to find out management practices, source of information, and adoption of technologies by the pig farmers in Mizoram. From the study it is found that pigs were reared in stalls. The space provided to the adult pigs was inadequate. The farmers preferred cross-bred animals to rear.

Personal localite sources of information were regularly used for farm information. Television, Radio and Newspaper were preferred sources of information under mass media. On-farm Demonstration was the mostly preferred by the farmers.

Shifting cultivation in North-East India in general and Mizoram in particular is challenged today as never before owing to mounting concerns on environmental degradation (soil, flora and fauna depletion) on one hand and the pressure of economic development and difficulty in finding suitable alternatives to this practice on the other. The home gardens seem to be best alternatives to promote local food security and biodiversity conservation. The gardens are quite diverse with a complex vertical and horizontal structure that includes trees, crops and animals managed as a single unit for food, ornamental, medicinal and other purposes. Despite their importance in providing sustainable livelihood, the government support to promote this agroforestry system is largely lacking. This book covers species diversity, energy flow pattern, home garden plant use and some aspects of tree-crop interactions within the system and is expected to provide valuable reference materials to students and researchers in the field of agroforestry.

Environmental protection and Tourism irreconcilable? In one of the most beautiful Ecosystems in the world - The Backwaters of Kerala it`s essential to get it right. One of the most popular holiday options in this enchanting landscape is the romantic houseboat. It is supposed to be destroying the traditional livelihoods of the native people, but is Houseboat Tourism to blame and what sustainability criteria should be set in a developing country? Setting standards which are difficult to achieve, provided the impetus for devising a new model which takes into account the current stage of development in India and also the conditions prevailing in the region. The huge social disparity between rich and poor, have shown that in spite of steep economic growth, India is still very far from being categorized as an Industrial nation. Philipp Heinemann bases his model on a fundament of sustainability, analyses the interacting forces and attempts to tackle these problems. Where does this leave Houseboat Tourism? Whoever is interested in sustainable tourism development, will find in Philipp Heinemann’s book some answers, based upon his own research, during a year spent in the region.

Genomic Profile of the Rongmei (Kabui) tribe of Manipur, India

4468 руб.
The present study tries to explore the genomic profile of Rongmei tribe of Manipur, through autosomal and mitochondrial DNA. A comparative analysis with other neighboring populations is expected to provide more additional insights on the ongoing notion of North East India acting as a barrier or corridor. These tribesmen have been staying in the valley areas of Manipur with other tribal and non-tribal populations, with possibility of intermarriages among them. The population is in Hardy Weinberg equilibrium. Both autosomal and mitochondrial DNA markers reveal a much closer genetic resemblance with East Asian populations especially those with Chinese, which further supports the mythologically claimed migratory history of the population. These similarities support the notion of North East India acting as a barrier in early human migrations to East Asia, though it cannot rule out the inflow of mongoloids from East Asia to India. Moreover, the present study provides a basic substratum for further clinical association studies among the Manipur and East Asian populations.

Mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) and mosquito-borne diseases have been threatening human and animals.Mosquito-borne parasitic diseases are endemic in many areas of the world, causing more than 3.2 billion people to be at risk (WHO, 1998). Each year 300 to 500 million cases of malaria are reported worldwide, resulting in 1.5 to 2.7 million deaths (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2004).Our understanding of mosquito larval ecology is limited and the knowledge is insufficient to achieve effective vector control. The present study is the first attempt to understand mosquito associations in different breeding habitats and to characterize the physico-chemical and biotic factors of these mosquito larval habitats to identify the factors that influence the abundance and distribution of mosquito in diverse aquatic habitats in Mizoram, India.Moreover,the status of insecticide resistance and prevalence of different types of resistance mechanisms in anopheles populations from six administrative districts of Mizoram is also reported. This analysis should be useful for vector and malaria control all over the world.

The book also illustrates that community involvement and participation in development are perceived by local residents to be key in achieving successful community development.

Volunteer Tourism: Effective Development Tool? Or Feel Good Travel?

4468 руб.
As a branch of alternative tourism, volunteer tourism or ‘voluntourism’ is responsible for introducing vacationers to parts of developing countries not usually seen through traditional forms of tourism. Broadly defined, voluntourism consists of “Those tourists who, for various reasons, volunteer in an organized way to undertake holidays that might involve aiding or alleviating the material poverty in some groups in society…”. These travellers interact with local and community development organizations in ways said to capacitate the organizations and contribute to development as a whole. This raises important questions about the implications of inserting unskilled and unprepared volunteers into what is said to be development work. Drawing on the development framework set out by various community development theories, and using a case study of American volunteer tourist groups working in Guatemala; this manuscript examines claims that short-term, unskilled volunteers can engage in local development work and unpacks many of the issues associated with this new trend.

This research discusses the opportunities and challenges of tourism development in Gedeo zone. To attain the research objectives, the researcher used multiple methods. Based on the findings obtained from multiple methods, this research concludes that the study areas have plenty of cultural, historical, archeological and religious sites. It is potentially favorable for: historical tourism, archeological tourism, ecotourism, cultural tourism, and professional type of tourism which is not exploited and promoted properly. The major reasons for this could be: lack of knowledge about what tourism and tourists, less knowhow what and how to do with regard to tourism businesses, unable to use their local products, less involvement and participation in tourism activities, and weak coordination among the major stakeholders of tourism. An awareness creation about tourism, how and what tourism businesses will be profitable, create a conducive atmosphere for local communities to involve and participate in tourism.

Tourism and sustainable development have been a much studied and contested field of research. Our work can therefore be seen as an experiment – in fact, it is intended to be a debate paper. We cannot even claim that this volume was born of a healthy compromise. We have different opinions of the definitions, processes, phenomena and the current system of tourism itself. The most contested concepts were included in the title – time will tell whether we were right to do that. We are aware that the concept and interpretation of the development of tourism on an ecological basis – or in other words, tourism ecology – will be debated at least to the extent that landscape ecology was, back in the time. We expect ourselves to make changes to how it is interpreted, how it is viewed, in light of the new scientific findings. We consider this volume a monograph, a reference book and a textbook at the same time. Who are we recommending it as a monograph? To researchers, to discuss. Who is it addressed to as a reference book? To teachers so that they may use it in their lessons. Finally, it is a textbook for our valued students who find the topic of responsible tourism development interesting.

As a result there has been short of empirical evidence, especially from the grassroots on how these (community involvement and participation) could be achieved for the sustainability of the tourism industry and its contribution to poverty reduction. This book brings together and examines empirically both aspects of community involvement and participation (decision-making process and benefit sharing) along with tourism’s contribution to poverty reduction. Its findings are strengthened through the triangulation of both quantitative and qualitative data, the author’s two-month period of fieldwork and experience in the study area, coupled with his experience with the wider community in the study country, Tanzania. The book is useful to a wide range of people, particularly those who are interested with the integration of local communities in tourism development.

Recently, tourists transformed themselves from a passive audience to active players. Despite the variety of information regarding tourist destination or attraction, tourists are frequently not capable to cope with such a huge volume of choice. The main idea of this book is designing a tourism recommender system aimed at assisting tourists in finding a way-out in the e-tourism “chaos”. This system facilitates personal selection and prevents tourists and travelers from being overwhelmed by a stream of superfluous data that are unrelated to their interest, location and knowledge of a place. In tourism domain recommendations may refer to indicate cities to go to, places to visit, attractions to see, events to participate in, road maps, options for hotels, etc. The proposed methodology may be useful to students, professionals in communication and promotion, and particularly to tourism policy-makers since it highlights the fact that the time has changed and the on-line experience has shifted from searching and consuming to creating, connecting and exchanging.
