Dr. KA Sreejith
Department of Forest Ecology
Dr.K.A. Sreejith got his PhD from FRI, Dehradun for his work entitled ““Ecological and Ecophysiological Studies on the successional status of tree seedlings in Tropical wet-evergreen and semi-evergreen forests of Kerala”. He is actively involved in field oriented studies in tropical forests of Western Ghats. By monitoring more than 20 Permanent Sample Plots across the state he is trying to elucidate the vegetation dynamics of major forest ecosystem of Southern Western Ghats. As a part of long-term monitoring of forest ecosystem in the context of climate change, he just initiated the process of establishment of large scale (10 ha.) permanent plot in evergreen forest of Kerala which follows CTFS methodology. He is also involved in research programmes on biodiversity documentation, conservation, management and restoration of large scale ecological units.
