Diatoms of Indian Sub-continent

Diatoms are microscopic algae and characterized by their unique silica based cell wall with species-specific ornamentation. Diatoms are incredibly species rich with nearly 20,000 known species and few hundred thousands of species are yet to be described. The silica cell walls, called frustules show a wide diversity in form and shapes but usually groups diatoms into two types pinnate (elongated shape) and centric (Circular shape). They potentially account for 40% of the world's primary production, generate much of the energy that drives aquatic ecosystem.

Ecology and Conservation of Amphibians of Western Ghats and Beyond

Amphibian population decline across the globe at an alarming rate has enthused researchers to probe for the cause. Habitat alteration including fragmentation, degradation, modification and rapid urbanization are considered to be key factors in such declines. In addition, fungal diseases, use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers are also negatively influencing the amphibian population. It is still not clear how these causalities work, individually, collectively or synergistically?

Geo-informatics and Satellite Remote Sensing

In the recent years, the advances in geographic information sciences (GISc) and the availability of satellite remote sensing data has enabled the scientific community to use these for a variety of studies concerning development and even aiding at times of d isaster. The tools of GIS and satellite remote sensing data are very useful in mapping natural resources and urban growth, while characterizing and monitoring land-use and land cover change.

Leveraging the potentials, Gubbi Labs has worked on the following projects:
