Ongoing Projects

Establishment of Assam Bio-Resource Centre (ABRC)

Background

Assam situated in one of the biodiversity hotspots of the world can boast of its pride. Indiscriminate and uncontrolled use and destruction of natural resources has resulted in placing many bio-resources in the mouth of extinction. To check this dangerous trend of destruction, scientific awareness should be generated amongst the common people, so that the rapid decline of some high priced as well as medicinal plant species gets checked. On this very issue, the Assam Bio-Resource Centre has been set up. This project is supported by Govt. of Assam.

Objectives

Economically and ecologically important species selected for conservation to study their Physiology, Ecology, Cytogenetics and Agrotechnology.
Collection, conservation and propagation of some selected species of plants and animals.
To generate germplasm banks and conservatories.
To formulate and conduct out the appropriate and economical method of conservation and propagation.
To emphasize on restoration ecology for the survival of the endangered species.
To provide facilities for research on flora and fauna.
To organize seminar and training programme on rural people empowerment.
To achieve the goals of conservation of biodiversity through research, education and entertainment through a careful planned way.
