WELCOME TO BIODIVERSITY LAB!

IndianButterflies1Diversity is the cornerstone of life on earth. Biodiversity is organized at various levels, from communities and constituent species to genomes and genes. This diversity and its evolution are influenced by ecological opportunities and natural and sexual selection. Our lab consists of evolutionary biologists who study biodiversity, its complexity and interactions at various organizational levels, the selective processes that shape them, and the means to preserve biodiversity in tropical regions. We especially focus on:

    Speciation, Adaptation and Morphological Diversification

    – Batesian Mimicry and the Evolution of Polymorphism

    – Evolutionary Genetics of Butterfly Wing Patterns

    – Biology and Conservation of Indian Butterflies
