The Department of Biosciences was established in 1969 by late Prof. S.C. Pandeya. On the recommendation of the University Grants Commission (UGC), an integrated Post Graduate Course in Biology (M. Sc. Experimental Biology), first of its kind in the Country, was started in this Department. The Department started with its base in Environmental Sciences and in few years it took leadership in the field of ecology under the stewardship of its founder head, late Prof S. C. Pandeya. Gradually, other areas of research such as Plant Physiology, Animal Physiology & Toxicology, Neurobiology, Ornithology, Wildlife Biology and Fisheries were also integrated into the thrust areas. Later on, keeping Integrated Biology as the theme for the first year of the course, the second year was specialized into Plant Sciences (Botany), Animal Sciences (Zoology) and Microbiology.
