Research MattersPRiMER course completetd successfullyPlanning for Evolution of CitiesBiodiversity outside Forests

For recent & latest research based news stories & highlights in science, engineering, technology & humanities in India.

Participants of PRiMER after the course! What a way to wrap it up for the coming year! Thank you to all the particpants.

Cities are complex systems. Building on the 'science of cities' our research works on planning for evolution of cities.

Biodiversity estimations have been typically carried out mostly in protected areas. However, there remains an un-estimated diversity outside forests or the non-protected areas which are mostly not sampled and estimated scientifically. Here, our research attempts to study the biodiversity in the non-protected areas.

Uncovering the mystery of Microhyla sholigari using citizen engagement

The Western Ghats of India is known for its myriad diversity of amphibians. Frogs in particular have been hopping all over the place and one can find reports of new species being discovered almost on a monthly basis. As a case in point, over 100 species of frogs have been discovered from the Western Ghats in the last decade alone.

Scientists to join hands with Citizens in Mapping an Endangered Toad

Pedostibes tuberculosus, commonly known as Malabar Tree Toad is an endemic toad reported very sparsely across the Western Ghats. The discovery of this toad dates back to 1876 by Dr.

Mandookavani 1.0

Mandookavani (Sanskrit: Mandooka - Frog, Vani - Speech) is an acoustic guide to the frogs and toads of the Western Ghats. Frogs and toads (together called anurans) have evolved to communicate vocally. Anurans produced sound by vibrating vocal chords as air is pushed over them through lungs. The sound thus produced gets amplified in a balloon like vocal sac. Each species has a unique calling pattern and hence can be used as an identification key in the field.
