Krishnan, Riki and Pramod, P (1999) Bats of Indian Institute of Science campus. In: Current Science, 76 (6). p. 716.
The lush green Indian Institute of Science campus is located in the north of Bangalore. The Maharaja of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, generously gifted the Institute with 150.54 hectares of land. At present the extent of land holding of the Institute is 179.28 hectares (Suresh, H. S. and Harish Bhat, The Flora of IISc Campus, Technical Report, 1998). Prior to its establishment in 1909, it was said to have open scrubland and farmland. The present landscape is largely due to the planning of the visionaries like C. V. Raman, G. H. Krumbigel, Homi Bhabha, B. S. Nirody and C. N. R. Rao.
