Dr Payal Bal

Conservation and related policy decisions rely heavily on accurate monitoring and data analysis. However, for multispecies assemblages we are severely limited in our ability to measure all components of the system. The dynamicity and non-linear relationships within species assemblages often render community dynamics unpredictable. On the other hand ...
