On a range of Marmota himalayana (Rodentia, sciuridae) in Nepal as the southernmost border of its distribution
The southernmost border of distribution of Marmota himalayana (Hodson 1841) is at the same time the southernmost one for the genus Marmota. Besed on the map of "Horizontal and vertical distribution of vegetation in the Himalayas (Schweinfurth 1957), the subalpine and alpine belts are distinguished as the area of the most probable distribution of marmots in Nepal. The localities of marmot settlements in the territory of Nepal are shown. The southern border of distribution of M. himalayana, as well as the southernmost border of Marmota genus is between 28°N and 27°N in the Nepal Himalayas.
