    About This Project

    National Centre for Biological Sciences

    Tarantulas are large bodied and most species are obligate burrowers and have long been favorite of bio-geographers. The Western Ghats provides an ideal setting to study biogeography of this group due to its complex tectonic history and heterogeneity in topography, climate and habitat. I propose to used advance DNA data to assess diversity of tarantulas of Western Ghats and trace their origin and patterns of speciation.
