I have been leading a team of dedicated young researchers focusing on the status of eco-system services and species functions in various habitats and species assemblages. I am deeply concerned about the loss of ecosystem services in agro-ecosystems due to indiscriminate use of insecticides and loss of natural vegetation in rural landscape.Â A major thrust area in our research group is to understand the status of pollination services along agricultural intensification gradients in Eastern India.
