Every landscape has a sound associated with it. The sounds are generated by anthropogenic, biological and geological activities which vary spatially as well as temporally. The sounds vary from region to region. In urban settings, there is domination of sounds generated by vehicles, machines and other human activities (Botteldoron et al., 2004) , on the other hand the sounds in the forest is dominated by animal and geological activities. Soundscape is the term given to the sounds created by the integration of all these sounds i.e., anthrophony, biophony and geophony (Pijanowski et al., 2011). The intellectual foundations of soundscape ecology are described—those of spatial ecology, bioacoustics, urban environmental acoustics and acoustic ecology. In this paper, we have described a theoretical perspective of soundscape in Garhwal Himalaya region i.e. what is currently known about factors that control temporal soundscape dynamics and variability across spatial gradients.
