ON GOING OTHER PROJECTS:
1. Ex-situ conservation of RET species of Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Collection, introduction and multiplication of Orchids at Dhanikhari Exp. Garden cum Arboretum (2017-2019): Established an orchidarium with 63 sp. found in Andaman & Nicobar Islands. Multiplied some Rare, endangered and threatened orchids by the methods of multiplication by saplings, division of the bush, cuttings and producing plants from back bulbs.
2. Flora of Kyd, Pitman & James Islands, South Andaman (2015-2018): Four exploration tours were undertaken to unexplored Kyd, Pitman and James Island and 469 field numbers were identified into 386 species. Two distributional records for Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
3. Herbal garden of Andaman And Nicobar Islands (2017-2019): (Co-PI) Funded by National Medicinal Plant Board, New Delhi
4. Ex-situ conservation of RET species of Andaman & Nicobar Islands at Dhanikhari Experimental Garden cum Arboretum, and identification of unidentified angiosperm specimens in ANRC Herbarium (2015-2017): During the explorations seeds/seedlings of 103 species were collected and introduced in the Dhanikhari Experimental Garden cum Arboretum. 113 unidentified specimens of PBL were identified into 54 species.
5. Survey of two wetlands of Little Andaman Rabindra Nagar Dam Reservoir and Ramakrishna Dam Reservoir 2017-18: Total 214 plant species belonging to 111 families growing at the dam sites were identified and report submitted.
6. Assessment of sedges based on Micro-morphological characters, Food value and Potential role in Phytoremediation in wetlands of Uttar Pradesh (2013-2015): Uttar Pradesh State Biodiversity Board (UPSBB) FUNDED Project- Worked as RA; One new addition to region was made.
