Dobremez classification

Jean-François Dobremez (1972, 1976) recognised 4 belts (western; northwestern; central; eastern); 11 bioclimatic zones, 35 forest types, 75 vegetation types, 118 ecosystems. These are used in the conservation literature in Nepal (e.g. Biodiversity Profiles Project). A detailed account of the Dobremez classification is in preparation [see also Laboratoire d'Ecologie Alpine website].
