Forest Communities across natural and anthropogenic gradients in Eastern Himalayas
My current research aims to quantify the abundance, dominance and biodiversity of woody plant species, birds and soil biota in several forest types (monocultures, mixed-native plantation, protected forest area etc.) and to assess the ecosystem services in Darjeeling Himalayas.
Other research Interest:
. Plant community ecology
. Ecosystem services assessment
. High-altitude wetland management
. Indigenous knowledge systems and natural resource management
. Science communication
. Science-policy-practice interface for conservation.
