P.h.D Dissertation:

For my Ph.D. I had studied the ecology and conservation of shrubland bird communities in Eastern Ghats of India. To ensure an effective conservation model I had:

  1. 1. The foraging habitat use by shrub land birds
  2. 2. Association between invasive plants and bird communities
  3. 3. Socio-economic structure of the local communities and their dependence on the shrub forests
  4. 4. Land Use and Land Cover Changes in Eastern Ghats
  5. By combining the results from all the above I had developed a conservation policy that involves active involvement of local communities, invasive plant management for rehabilitation of shrub forests.
