What is Landscape Ecology?


You may be curious about a Career in Landscape Ecology. Understanding Why one wants to choose a Career in Landscape Ecology is phenomenally more important than figuring out How to get into Landscape Ecology. The internet is a great source of information on Landscape Ecology, but it is second best to learning about the same from a real professional.

Gautam Talukdar has 19 years & 7 months of professional experience in Landscape Ecology. Gautam Talukdar defines Landscape Ecology as:

Landscape ecology is the science of studying and improving relationships between ecological processes in the environment and particular ecosystems. This is done within a variety of landscape scales, development spatial patterns, and organizational levels of research and policy





How Gautam Talukdar got into Landscape Ecology?


I did my graduation from Dukhane College, Maharashtra. Then did my post graduation in Botany from the Institute of India. Finally did my PhD from Indian Institute of Remote Sensing. I am working as a Scientist in Wildlife Institute of India since 1999.

This Talk is unique because it talks about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Landscape Ecology and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Landscape Ecology. It explains Education needed in Landscape Ecology with these items:
     2) General Knowledge  
     3) Geography & Ecology  
     4) Geo Informatics  
     5) Geology  
     6) Life Sciences

     7) Research & Observation  
     8) Empathy & Interpersonal Skills  
     9) Positive Attitude  
     10) Communication  
     11) Physical Fitness  
     12) Passion  
     13) Patience & Persistence  

Positives of Landscape Ecology motivate one to work hard for the same. The Talk discusses following Positives of Landscape Ecology:
     14) Way of Life  
     15) Travel  
     16) Social Impact  
     17) Continuous Learning  
     18) Proximity to Nature  

Challenges define Landscape Ecology as much as the Positives of the same:
     19) Long Working Hours  
     20) Variable Working Conditions  
     21) Occupational Hazards  
     22) Nascent Field  
     23) Low Influence on Execution

[ 5 years & 7 months Experience ]

Evolutionary biology is the subfield of biology that studies the evolutionary processes that produced the diversity of life on Earth, starting from a single common ancestor. These processes include natural selection, common descent, and speciation.

"I have done B Sc in Biotechnology) from Bharathiar University and M Sc in Bioscience from University of Leads, UK. I then did Ph D in Evolutionary Biology from Maxplanck Institute, Germany & Netherlands. I am a population geneticist with a strong interest in Evolutionary Biology, Molecular Anthropology and Conservation Genetics. For my PhD from Max Planck Institute (Nijmegen), I looked at incorporating information on genes, language and culture in a consilient framework towards a holistic approach to understanding pre-history. I used population genetic modelling, coalescent simulations, forward simulation techniques and phylogenetics to understand the pre-history of Polynesian and Dravidian Societies. My research interests are largely interdisciplinary, working at the interface of evolutionary biology, anthropology and conservation biology. I worked on the mitochondrial DNA stratigraphy of Islands of Southeast Asia (University of Leeds, United Kingdom), population genetics of northeastern hill tribes, and molecular ecology of large carnivores(National Centre for Biological Sciences , Bangalore), and the anthropological and evolutionary nature of perceptions of human wildlife conflict in semi-arid areas of India, (Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science). I have been associated with the Monitoring Tigers, Co-Predators, Prey and their Habitat project here at the Wildlife Institute. My role was to lead the genetic component of the project, wherein we used molecular techniques to understand the genetic diversity of large carnivores across the country. I continue to contribute to this aspect of the project. I am currently associated with projects investigating the population genetic structure of large carnivores, characterization of genetic diversity of Asiatic lions, and population genetic characteristics and phylogeography of the Gangetic river dolphin. My interest lies in exploring the evolutionary trajectories of biological systems, adaptive functions and their consequences, and the use of this information in making scientifically sound conservation interventions. I am specialized in Evolutionary Biology, Population Genetics, Phylogenetics, and Molecular Anthropology. I am Scientist C and Faculty at Wildlife Institute of India."
