Proterozoic – Phanerozoic transition biotic characteristics for rectifying the stratigraphic complicacies of the Lesser Himalaya thrust terrain that formed much of the basement of sedimentary basins the entire orogen.
Cenozoic fauna from the Himalaya in unraveling the intricacies of the orogen evolution. Fauna provides robust temporal perspective to the regional and global events besides correlating disjunct sedimentary packages. In conjunction with sedimentological information it is possible to identify provenance and locale of deposition in time and space during entire evolution of the Himalaya.
