Plant Biology

Project Description

The Environmental Remediation project is exploring the role of plants in phytoremediation as well as plant based biosorbents to bioremediate heavy metals and textile dyes from the aquatic environment. Under Other Research we are conducting studies on the Impact of climate change – looking at historical trends in the local climate using baseline data and controlling the spread of dengue in Sri Lanka. The latter is part of a mega project implemented nationally. Besides looking at the socio-economic associations with the spread of the disease a small aquatic organism called copepods are being investigated as potential predators of the mosquito larvae.
