Results show that that % of the 1, freshwater species of fishes, molluscs, dragonflies and damselflies currently known in the Eastern Himalaya region are assessed as Data. In the Eastern Himalaya and Western Ghats regions, threats to fish are high (18% and 37% respectively) and amphibians in the Western Ghats (41%), although other taxa are less threatened than in.
