Tarantula (Araneae: Theraphosidae) spider diversity, distribution and habitat-use: A study on Protected Area adequacy and conservation planning at a landscape level in the Western Ghats of Uttara Kannada district, Karnataka

The project is aimed to understand diversity, distribution and habitat use of theraphosid species in various land use categories in the Uttara Kannda district, Karnataka. It will help in population assessments of Indian Theraphosid spiders found in the region and also create awareness amongst locals about the importance of conservation of tarantulas in the Uttara Kannda district. As a result, it is expected to help in improving conservation efforts of these poorly known but globally threatened theraphosid spiders in the study area

Bat communities in the Western Ghats: status, ecology and conservation
Quantify and characterize spatial variation in bat communities, and develop echo-location call libraries for bats in priority conservation areas in the Western Ghats. The work will contribute to an enhanced recognition of the biological value of this unstudied taxonomic group, and evaluate the efficacy of the current protected area network for bat conservation in the region
