Studying small confined habitat has two fold advantages for ecological research. Firstly, its importance as habitat to a micro-ecosystem, and secondly its applications in experimental research. Tree-hole aquatic habitat is such a habitat having a considerable importance as micro - habitat for numerous significant species, especially for disease spreading invertebrates, which act as model systems as they have tractability and generality at laboratory scale studies. This review highlights profiles of tree-hole aquatic habitats and ecological relationships of its inhabitants supported by experimental evidences in peninsular India.
