Research activities

  • Impact of changing climatic conditions (temperature and pH) on the natural life history of caridean shrimps

  • Inventory survey on the status of coral reef associated organisms from Gulf of Mannar, Lakshadweep, Andaman and Nicobar islands

  • Understanding the perception and attitudes of fishermen and local communities towards the conservation of coastal and marine ecosystems (corals, mangroves and sea grass)

  • Response and adaptation of seaweeds to interactive influence of ocean warming and acidification.

  • Individual and Cumulative effect of climate change to marine microalgae and zooplankton.

  • Screening of potential microalgae and macroalgae for carbon sequestration

  • Screening of differentially expressed genes in larvae of shrimps under predicted climate change conditions.
