About Head of Department

Dr. S. Jayakumar

Professor
My field of interests are Forest Ecology and Land cover dynamics. I study forest fire and its impact on flora, fauna, microbes and soil and the structure and composition of different life forms along the elevation in Western and Eastern Ghats. Patterns of regeneration and factors affecting regeneration of trees are also in my research focus. I also study the carbon sequestration potential of different life forms and how various disturbance factors affect the sequestration potential of trees. I also conduct studies on human-animal conflicts in general and human-elephant conflict in particular. Other than forest, I do research on urban sprawl and its impact on the environment. I use Remote Sensing and GIS as tools in my studies. I teach Remote Sensing and GIS, Environmental Informatics and modeling, Forest Ecology and Satellite Image Processing for environmental Applications.
