Directory of Ornithologists

This is a directory of independent/established researchers on birds. It is not a comprehensive listing of those who study birds in India; rather it is currently focussed on those who head labs or groups that help train young people by accepting them as volunteers, interns, Masters students, PhD students, and so on. This directory will be most useful for those seeking such training.

If you are an ornithologist with a lab or group that accepts interns, Masters students, PhD students, etc, and would like to add your name to the directory, please write to [email protected]
