Biodiversity of Vithura

The 'Biodiversity of Vithura' website site has been created to provide information about the flora and fauna documented within the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Thiruvananthapuram (IISER-TVM) campus and adjoining areas. The campus is located in the southern Indian village of Vithura, and is part of the Western Ghats mountains system, recognized as a global biodiversity hotspot. A major part of the data on this website is expected to come from two Long-term monitoring plots to be established in 2013. The website is intended to provide updated checklists, photo galleries and keys for identification of these taxa. It is currently under construction - please check back for updates in early 2013.
