About Biodiversity Lab

We are evolutionary biologists who study the evolution and conservation of biodiversity using phylogenetic, ecological, behavioural, genetic and genomic methods. We also discovery new species and do a lot of natural history in the field. To aid in this research and to build community resources, we maintain a substantial specimen and tissue collection in a climate-controlled space, trait and occurrence data, and spearhead a successful citizen science project, Biodiversity Atlas – India, including the Butterflies of India website
