Dr. P. M. Mohan

Research Area

I am an ambitious personality in the field of research. I produced within the short span of thirteen years, twelve Ph.D.’s and two will be submitted to their thesis and five are working for their Ph.D. degree. Nineteen years of service in Andaman, I published more than 130 research articles about Andaman Biodiversity, Coral reef environment, Climatic Studies and related topics. There were two new species identified one each in Sponge and Polycheata and around 30 species were reported as new records for these Islands. I alone have funded projects of more than 5 crore rupees and my laboratory at present is one of the best laboratories for Climatic Studies in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
