Dr. N. Parthasarathy

Research Area

Professor in the department of Ecology and Environmental Sciences, engaging in teaching of ecology of terrestrial biome, forest botany, medicinal plant resources, functional ecology, and dynamics of tropical forests. Contributor to global biodiversity synthesis as a network of tree diversity and diversity and ecology of lianas through our three decadal biodiversity inventories in forests of Western and Eastern Ghats, Andamans and Coromandel coast of India. Current programs include large scale plant diversity inventories in Central Western Ghats and Kashmir Himalayas.
