  • Title
    A report of the threatened plant Decalepis hamiltonii Wight & Arn. (Asclepiadaceae) from the mid elevation forests of Pachamalai Hills of the Eastern Ghats, Tamil Nadu, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The Pachamalai Hills are a part of the Eastern Ghats and are situated in the central region of Tamil Nadu. The vegetated area is distributed into 35 reserved forests of Pachamalai Hills. The plant Decalepis hamiltonii Wight & Arn. is one of the threatened plant found in the study area. This indicates that the Pachamalai Hills can harbour good vegetation which are the vestiges of a luxuriant vegetation cover of the past era, hence, need to be protected. The hills are most significant socio-culturally because of the diversified forest patches found there. These hills have been studied earlier mainly for floristic analysis. Before this, D. hamiltonii has not been collected from Pachamalai.
