A tri-monthly newsletter published by Centre for studies in Ethnobiology, Biodiversity and Sustainability (CEiBa) that focusses on a diverse array of topics, mostly covering ecology and environment, natural and cultural history to oral history and conservation. The purpose is to introduce awe-inspiring facets of natural or semi-natural world to a wider group of readers who tend to distance themselves owing to inherent complexities of dry scientific findings. Moreover, it is also a vehicle of communication of aspiring scholars who wish to share their fascinating ‘research stories’. CEiBa is a non-profit research and education center (registered under Indian Trust Act, 1882) and its activity hinges on various aspects of human-nature interface, bio-cultural diversity, and the path to sustainability.
