Shyam Bahadur Saksena Shyam Bahadur Saksena

Shyam Bahadur Saksena received his Ph.D. from the University of Saugor, Sagar. He contributed significantly to the study of biological control of soil-born pathogens. He successfully correlated edaphic factors with association with mycoflora and vegetation types. He discovered new genera and species of fungi, which later proved to be virulent human pathogen. He was a member of the American and British Mycological Societies, Indian Phytopathological Society, and Indian Mycological Society. Dr. Saksena was the elected Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences, Allahabad; President, Indian Science Congress. In his honor, the Indian National Science Academy has instituted the 'Professor Shyam Bahadur Saksena Memorial Award.'
