Md. Siddiqur Rahman's Research

Even a small contribution can help others in a great way...


Hi, this is my personal research homepage. You may know about my work as well as my research interests. I have graduated in Forestry from my country side University in Bangladesh. I have a keen interest in planning natural resources management like the forests, wetlands and waste landscapes. I have worked with two forestry projects where I used spatial tools to demarcate degradation and any kind of spatial shift due to anthropological causes. However, don't assume that I am an expert, I am just a beginner....

I like to study seedling dynamics in case of their growth, survival, succession, adoption with respect to climate factors like temperature, precipitation, humidity, light factor etc. In that context, using a controlled plant growth chamber is my favorite. I have several publications though species wise, tried to concentrate tree seedling survival through elevated temperature, saline and water stresses.

Ongoing Projects

Currently I am working with several projects, some of which may be of your interest.

  • Applying IUCN’s guideline for managing protected areas in Narsingdi district, Bangladesh
  • Identifying carbon sequestration potential of mangroves
  • Preparing digital elevation model (DEM) of Chittagong University campus using contour maps and spatial data
  • Plant abiotic stress tolerance like elevated temperature, short precipitation, lengthy sun hour etc.
  • Identifying survival rate and growth performance of Artocarpus chaplasha seedlings in extreme conditions like elevated temperature, water stress, water logging, saline water treatment
  • Using Climate Vegetation and Productivity (CVP) index at different forest types of Bangladesh to assess forest productivity
  • Determining Form Factor for different tree species in hill foretst of Bangladesh
