Vishal Kumar Prasad

Vishal is using bioacustic techniques to study the behavioural ecology of some groups of frogs in Asia (primarily in China, Korea, Russia and India) for his PhD.  His principal interest lies in understanding social and reproductive communications, systematics and conservation of amphibians using observational and experimental approach. He also spends his time collecting data of habitat niche and resource partitioning between some sympatric elusive and threatened species and likes to contribute to their conservation. In his previous projects, he has worked on diversity and ecology of herpetofauna in Central Indian Highlands and Western Ghats of India; and have also worked on the systematics of anurans in Eastern Indian biogeographic region of Chota Nagpur plateau in Jharkhand.
