About CES

The Centre for Ecological Sciences, founded in 1983 with the support of the Ministry of Environment and Forests offers exciting opportunities for research in a variety of areas in ecology. Over the past 25 years, and more, we have instilled a tradition of rigorous enquiry in diverse areas of ecology, evolution and behavior. Our projects are often integrative and we use multiple approaches from theoretical and laboratory studies to field-based research to explore our research questions. A number of our research areas are breaking new ground in ecology while others have significant roles in conservation.

About LTEO

The Ministry of Environment Forest and Climate Change is launching the Long-Term Ecological Observatories (LTEO) Programme, a multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary, all India coordinated project, which will be led by the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. In its first phase, the LTEO programme will monitor a range of themes and taxa across the Indian subcontinent including soil, forests, grasslands, invertebrates, fish, herpetofauna, birds, animal movement and marine ecosystems. The work will be initiated at 6 index sites representing different biomes including the Northwestern Arid Zone, Western Himalaya, Eastern Himalaya, Central India, Western Ghats and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The entire project will be managed by a Coordination Cell at the Indian Institute of Science.
