e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Diversity and distribution of non-insect arthropods of the Himalayan State of India, Uttarakhand with special reference to their conservation status


Non-insect arthropods are ranked third in terms of world's described species. However, like insects, they failed to maintain their ranking in relation to conservation priorities. Non-insect arthropods feed mostly on smaller insects and most of them are prey of hawks, owls, and birds in general. They play a huge role, indirectly, in the food chain. If all of them instantly would die now, there would be a huge increase in the number of small insects, which would cause great upset of food chain. Several species of non-insect arthropods are also of medical (ticks, dust mites, spiders) and agricultural (spider mites, varroa mites) importance. They also contribute a lot to ecosystem services. Thus, conservation of non-insect arthropods is important. However, the reality is, these groups of animals are more or less neglected through out the planet and as a result very little information is available on their diversity, distribution and conservation status. The Himalayan State of India, Uttarakhand is also a place where non-insect arthropods are badly neglected. Till to date we do not have precise idea about the diversity, distribution and conservation status of non-insect arthropods of this region. But it is true that all the life zones from sub-tropical hot to arctic cold exist in the Uttarakhand, thus seems to be endowed with very rich floral and faunal diversity. Accordingly, much research is needed to fill this gap. In this paper efforts are made to review the diversity, distribution and conservation status of non-insect arthropods of the Himalayan state of India, Uttarakhand.
