  • Title
    A checklist of the flowering plants of Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, Uttar Pradesh, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Katerniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary, a tropical moist deciduous forest along the Indo-Nepal boarder comprises of 778 species of angiosperms, out of which 613 species are dicots under 386 genera and 91 families and 165 species are monocots under 103 genera and 23 families.  It contains 82 species that are in cultivation and/or growing as alien invasives.  The species include 149 trees, 81 shrubs, 445 herbs and 103 climbers.  Fabaceae with 100 species and Poaceae with 65 species occupy the first position in dicots and monocots, respectively.  Cyperus with 14 species has been found to be the largest genus represented while 355 genera are represented by solitary species.  The present study enumerates all species of flowering plants occurring in the sanctuary area with their correct name along with first citation and some important references pertaining to the flora of the study area.  Important synonyms have also been provided.  For majority of species the representative voucher specimens have also been supplied.  The paper also briefly deals with the vegetation types of the area. The outcome of the work is based on extensive field survey of the area conducted during 2008–2011, study of literature and examination of specimens of earlier collections housed at BSA, BSIP, CDRI and LWG.

  • Title
    Angiosperms of India known only by type collection
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The paper throws light on the little-known angiosperms of India.  The present study has revealed that a total of 60 taxa have not been relocated after their discovery and are still known only from their type collections/localities.  For each taxon, details such as the current accepted botanical name with authority, family name, habit with a few salient features, habitat, type locality or distribution with altitude and the collection period have been briefly provided.  These taxa are alphabetically enumerated in this paper with the hope that these may be relocated in future floristic explorations.

    Arborescent Angiosperms of Mundanthurai Range in the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR) of the southern Western Ghats, India
    Type
    Report
    Description
    Abstract: The present study was carried out to document the diversity of arborescent angiosperm taxa of MundanthuraiRange in the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve (KMTR) of the southern Western Ghats in India. During the floristicsurvey carried out from January 2008 to December 2010, a total of 247 species and intraspecific taxa of trees and shrubsrepresenting 175 genera in 65 families were recorded. The most speciose families are Euphorbiaceae (27 spp.), Rubiaceae (17 spp.), Myrtaceae (14 spp.), Lauraceae (13 spp.) and Annonaceae (11 spp.). Of the 247 taxa, 27 species are endemic only to this region which includes Agasthiyamalaia pauciflora, Elaeocarpus venustus, Garcinia travancorica, Gluta travancorica, Goniothalamus rhynchantherus, Homalium travancoricum, Homaium jainii, Orophea uniflora, Phlogacanthus albiflorus, Polyalthia shendurunii, Symplocos macrocarpa and Symplocos sessilis. This clearly signifies that this range is relevant to the conservation of the local flora.
