Dr. Pankaj Kumar

Ecologist

Flora Conservation Department

 

As a Botanist in the Orchid Conservation Section, I conduct field surveys to study orchids in their natural habitat so as to better understand occurrence, abundance, species biology and ecological interactions. In addition, I undertake morphology-based research to resolve taxonomic anomalies. All of this helps me to evaluate extinction risk and assist in devising conservation strategies and reintroduction plans for the most threatened species.
