We are a
small group of enthusiastic people who are fascinated by the diversity of
life, in form and function. This fascination in combination with our passion
for basic science has brought us together here. People in the lab have
diverse interests under the overarching theme of behavioural ecology.
Dr. Manjari Jain
I joined IISER Mohali in October 2013 as an Assistant Professor (Biology)
and am in the process of setting up the Behavioural Ecology Lab.
I am keenly interested in understanding the behavioural ecology of flying mammals, especially fruit
bats. My specific focus is on bat-plant interactions (chiropterophily and chiropterochory). I am also
curious about understanding the sensory biology and sociobiology of these cryptic species.
