COMPLETED PROJECTS:
 
1.                  Floristic diversity of Bhoj Ramsar Site in Madhya Pradesh ( 2016-2018): A total of 745 species of angiosperms were documented. Within this project four new records were reported from the state of M.P.
 
2.                  Studies of fossil and living plants with reference to the impact of climate change on flora of Gangetic Plains and Central India.(AAP- 2017-2019): In collaboration with BSIP, Lucknow) - A comparative picture of the fossil present pollen samples was prepared which reflected existence of pollen of Ludwigia octovalvis subsp. sessiflora (Micheli) P.H. Raven in fossil sediments of Corsinipollenites from Maastrichtian time period in India (about 65 mya) indicating primitivity and independent status of the subspecies Ludwigia octovalvis subsp. sessiflora.
 
3.                  Flora of Chhattisgarh Vol. II. (2017-18): A total of 117 species of family Poaceae were documented. One new record for the state was reported.

Two new records of india were published. 17 new records were reported for West Bengal state. Chapter published in flora of West Bengal Vol. III.
 
11.              Revision of the genus Pedicularis L. in India (2000-2004) – Book published through Bishen Singh Mahendra Pal Singh, Dehra Dun.
 
12.              A Monagraphic study of the family Berberidaceae of the Indian Region (A Taxonomic Revision, 1997-2000) – The genus Berberis L. (Berberidaceae) with 55 species has been worked out including pollen morphology of all species.
 
13.              Reproductive Biology, Multiplication & Rehabilitation of endangered Eremostachys Superba Royle ex Benth. (Lamiaceae) (1992-97): Reproductive biology has been work out to establish causes of rarity of the species and methods of rehabilitation suggested.
 
14.              Bee Botany of Bhimtal in western Himalayas (1985 – 1990): Milissopalynological studies of Bhimtal area were conducted to establish honeybee-plant relationship and plant preferences of bees on basis of identification of pollen carried by them. Book published through Bishen Singh Mahendra Pal Singh, Dehra Dun.
