 Forest Pathology Division


Mandates :

The Pathology Division has the mandate to study the diseases associated with forest ecosystems, their causal organisms, their surveillance and management and also to study the fungi associated with forest ecosystems, their useful and harmful effects and their utilization. The Mycology branch came into existence in 1950 with the initial thrust to collect and study the fungi attacking the forest trees and timber. After 1955, emphasis was given to study the diseases of forest tree species and work out their management strategies. The Division has 04 Scientists and 11 technical and other staff. During the review period the scientists of the Division published 03 papers in international peer reviewed journals, 31 in national peer reviewed journals, 04 books, 04 Technical reports and supervised 06 Ph.D. dissertations. The Division carried out work on 19 projects in the review period. The shortage of staff and disparity of pay in scientific and support staff is a major constraint in the institute. It is necessary to increase the motivation levels of field and support staff for better performance. The division at present is restricting its research to fungi and mycorrhizae. The scope should be extended to include other kinds of disease causing microorganisms like viruses, bacteria, nematodes, mycoplasma and other economically important groups such as mushroom and fungi of neutraceutical value. The division should also undertake toxicology studies, environment friendly formulations of fungicides, studies on deficiency diseases.

Vision of the Division :- 

Vision-I

  • Integrated disease management of nurseries and plantations of economically important forest species.
  • Identification of resistant sources against serious diseases like shisham mortality, etc.
  • Seed health with references to edible seeds, oil seeds, fruits, etc. of forest origin.
  • Introduction of disease management in sustainable medicinal plant production technology.
  • Molecular basis for host-parasite interaction in relation to resistance and diversity.

Vision- II

  •  Identification of sources for natural resistance in plantation grown juvenile timbers.
  • Estimation of carbon losses by the diseases.
  • Commercialization of Biocontrol agents for disease management.
  • Bioremediation of industrial wastes through microbes.
  • Evaluation of nutriceutical quality of potential forest fungi.

Vision- III

  • Exploration of antimicrobial properties of plants.
  • Application of biofertilizers in afforestation of wastelands.
  • Assessment of microbial diversity of forest ecosystems.
