About NCBS-TIFR Pachmarhi field station

The National Center for Biological Sciences, Pachmarhi Field Station is located on the Satpura plateau in Central India in the army town of Pachmarhi, Hoshangabad district, Madhya Pradesh. It is the highest point of Central India surrounded by a mind-boggling diversity of life, geology and history. Located in the middle of Satpura Tiger Reserve, Pachmarhi has a long history of biodiversity science.

The Field Station aims to be a facility with a constant footfall of students, researchers, government personnel and the general public including school children. Since NCBS formally took over the field station from 2016, and extensive renovation, maintenance, upkeep was undertaken. We resumed operations at the field station officially on 07-Aug-2017 and things began rolling in earnest from 10-Sep-2017. Since then, we have been active in the region working directly with the forest department, labs within NCBS, collaborations with both governmental and non-governmental organizations in the region as well as universities both in India and abroad. Find below the details of some of the projects being undertaken by NCBS Pachmarhi Field Station.
