G. Asha

  I am a Ph.D. graduate in Zoology from Central University of Kerala, India. My research was on Molecular Phylogeny and Spatiotemporal Variation of Dung beetles in Different Tropical Habitats of India. Currently I am a Post Doctoral Fellow at Zoological Survey of India. I am interested in Scarabaeinae ecology, community ecology of insects and plant-animal interactions.
