When people saw a new snakehead fish in a well in Pathanamthitta, Kerala, they were confused. Which is this strange fish? Scientists from the ICAR-National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources, Kochi now tell us the answer.
Researchers from the Kuvempu University find that frog species diversity in coffee plantations that use chemical fertilisers and pesticides is lower than in those plantations that do not use agrochemicals.
Last year’s floods in Kerala brought out a new snakehead fish from the underground aquifers. 90% of the fish diversity in the Western Ghats is still unknown to science, say scientists. Kudos to the alertness of scientists in KUFOS Kochi that led to the identification of a new species of fish.
