Dr. Sarnam Singh is Professor and Dean, School of Ecology and Environment Studies (SEES) from August 6, 2018. Since then he has been steering the academic and research activities of SEES. He holds Master’s degree from Kanpur University and Ph.D. degree in Botany (Science) from University of Calcutta, and two PG Diplomas in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (RS&GIS) for Ecology& Forestry from IIRS and Rural & Land Ecology from ITC, The Netherlands, and a Certificate in Ecodevelopment from Wildlife Institute of India. He also holds ten certificates of professional training courses on RS&GIS and other certificate courses relevant to ecology and environmental and geospatial technologies.

He has 41 years of research experience and 29 years of capacity building in application of Geospatial science and technology at Post Graduate diploma, M.Sc. and M. Tech. Courses. He is an accomplished plant taxonomist, Botanist and ardent explorer. He has explored vegetation from sea level in Andaman & Nicobar Islands to 6500 m in Himalaya. He has discovered 48 new plants to his credit and several other novelties, and two plants are named after him. He has steered and played lead role national projects such as Biodiversity Characterization at Landscape Level using RS&GIS in India in different capacities and National Carbon Pool Assessment Project as Deputy Project Director. As Centre Coordinator at Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), he coordinated ISRO Geosphere Biopshere Programme of India. He is globally acknowledged expert in the application of Rs&GIS and Global Positioning Systems for ecological, forestry and environment studies covering major areas such as forest ecology, forest monitoring, Biodiversity Surveys, Structural (phytosociology) and Functional Ecology (productivity), Landscape Ecology and Biodiversity Conservation; Wildlife Habitat Conservation, Man-Animal conflict; Vegetation Carbon Pool assessment and forest Productivity; Forest Managementand Inventory; Plant Taxonomy, Systematics, Floristics, etc. He is recipient of National Geospatial Award for Excellence 2015 by Indian Society of Remote Sensing, award consists of medal, citation and Rs. 1/- lakhs in cash.

(F) Secondary Origin of Asplenium Genus Establishment

In India Asplenium genus has second largest number of species in the world, after Americas. We have established Asplenium’s Secondary Center of Origin and Diversification in India (one in Himalayan endemic Centre (Clayton and Panigrahi, 1974) and another in Southern India. And it is supported by per cent of polyploidy.

(G) Ecological classification:

We have evolved and proposed ecological classification of Pteridophytes based on the habitats and perching mechanism.
