All his lecturer and researches centred around various disciplines of Ecology, including Plant Nutrient Ecology, Enviromental Ecology, Acid Rain Ecology, Microbial and Decomposition Ecology, Reclamation Ecology, Soil Nutrient Ecology, Ecology of Medicinal Plants, etc.

Dr. Palani has guided a total of 57 BSc Hons, Msc and PhD research projects during his long career as an academician – a number that should be considered quite an achievement, for such a task in the area of Ecology is not easy to accomplish!
