PRiMER: Primer in Methods and Ecological Research

Primer in Methods and Ecological Research (PRiMER) is a certificate course offered by Gubbi Labs to provide experiential learning on how to pursue research in Ecology. An intensive programme is aimed at inspiring participants and impart essential skills to be an ecologist.
 

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?
