This checklist contains a total of 194 fish species documented from the Kangchenjunga Landscape. This information has been collated from the Kangchenjunga Landscape country level feasibility assessment reports of Bhutan, India and Nepal.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 194 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
