    Population densities and diurnal activity pattern of the Indian Roller were studied in Nagapattinam District over three years in different habitats. The agricultural lands supported the highest populations (41km-2), followed by river banks (36km-2) and social forests (32km-2); populations showed yearly variations in numbers and density in all habitats. On average, birds were observed to spend most of the day scanning (57%), with the remainder divided among feeding (16%), flying, (12%), preening (10%) and resting (5%).

    This paper applies the principles of water-use accounts, developed in the first of the

    series, to the Indus River basin in South Asia. The Indus Basin covers 3 countries, rises

    in the Tibetan plateau in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar in China. Irrigated agriculture

    in the Basin is extensive with the construction of dams, barrages, and link canals to

    distribute water, with modern engineering to support irrigation starting as early as the

    mid 1800s.

    Net runoff is about 10% of total precipitation. Irrigated agriculture covers 20% of

    CPWF-IWMI “Basin Focal Project for the Indus-Gangetic Basin” is an initiative by the CPWF, to

    identify steps to be taken towards integrated management of the IGB’s water and land resources

    to improve productivity and ensure future sustainability of all production and ecosystems in the

    basin. The project was developed with the objective of conducting basin-wide analysis of the

    conditions, constraints and opportunities for improving agricultural water productivity and
