The paleoecological reconstructions are based on habitat spectra analysis of the fossil mammals from the primate‐yielding localities, following the protocols of Van mammalian paleodiversity and ecology of siwalik primates 17 Couvering (1980). Habitat spectra analysis is a sensitive method of paleohabitat reconstruction, which considers the morphology and the closeness of a fossil form to its nearest extant relative to deduce past ecological conditions. The method is based on two fundamental assumptions: (1) morphology of forms reflects habitat; and (2) the closer a fossil taxon is to a living taxon the greater the similarity between their habitats.

Mathur (1972) and Itihara et al. , 1978). West and colleagues reported the first paleontological fieldwork in the Nepal Siwaliks in 1975 (Sharma, 1984). , 1978). They reported fish, reptilian, and mammalian taxa from 17 localities, tentatively assigned to lower Siwalik. , 1991). The first evidence of a fossil hominoid from Nepal was an upper left molar of “Ramapithecus” (now assigned to Sivapithecus), reported by Munthe et al. (1983) from the Tinau Khola exposures north of Butwal. Initially, correlations of the Siwaliks of Nepal with the Siwaliks of India and Pakistan were hampered by the poor exposures and lack of paleontological data.

Basa describes the history of museums in India, making explicit their historical trajectory from colonial constructs to postcolonial engagements. In the colonial context, museums in India provided legitimacy, although sometimes indirectly, at first to colonial rule and later to the growth of nationalism. ” Their exhibits reflect their preoccupation with classification and typologies of all flavors. In a postcolonial situation, the Others speak, in a celebration of cultural diversity that has become an important aspect of modern museums, the challenge being to display cultural diversity with multiple voices without going against goals of national integration.
