Axis 1. of the Ecology Department / Objectives:   The area of the Western Ghats that the DoE and the IFP have been studying for almost 40 years is truly remarkable for an ecological perspective. This area is internationally renowned for being very rich in number of species in all endemic species. Endemic species, such as vegetable...
Axis 3. of the Ecology Department / Objectives:   Because we are numerous and strong, our needs are insatiable, we have a very strong imprint on the environment. Ecosystems in other areas of the DoE are trying to understand the operation is almost always a "human component" in close interaction with other ecosystem components (fauna...
Axis 4. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   The project aims to develop and sustain a long-term cooperation between Europe and South Asia in the area of taxonomy and information technology or broadly speaking, in the emerging discipline of Biodiversity Informatics. By sharing European know-how in the field of...
Axis 3. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   In India, millions of farmers secure their agricultural production in agroforestry and mountain landscapes, and lakhs of forest-dwellers depend on forest for their day-to-day subsistence. Despite that, demographic pressure and economic imperatives are leading to a...
Axis 3. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   In India about 7300 plant species are used in traditional health care systems such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and folk healing practices. The booming of traditional medicine industry results in an increasing demand on medicinal plant products. 90% of the medicinal...
Axis 3. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   In the context of the rapid degradation of soil, forest vegetation, water resources and the impoverishment of farmer’s economy, the role of agro-forestry has become vital in terms of balancing the conflicting issues of conservation of natural resources and their usage...
Axis 2. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   The objective of this project was to gather new data on past environmental changes in the semi-arid region of Peninsular India in order to understand how this zone, located in the rainshadow of the Western Ghats, has reacted to the quaternary climatic fluctuations (i....
Axis 4. of the Ecology Department / Objectives:   New tools for capacity building in Taxonomy The number of taxonomists and ecologists is dwindling the world over at an alarming rate. This has been acknowledged as one of the “taxonomic impediments” hindering the full implementation of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD...
Axis 1. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives: Perceived as one of the 25 global hotspots of biodiversity, the Western Ghats support the growth of a wide variety of endemic plants and animals. In compliance with such International Agreements as the Convention of Biological Diversity, the National Forest Policy has emphasized...
Axis 4. of the Ecology Department /   Objectives:   If agricultural development is to be successful and biodiversity is to be conserved, then accurate knowledge of the identity, geographic distribution and uses of plants is essential. Unfortunately, such basic information is often only partially available for...
