  • Title
    New locality records of the ‘Dancing Girl’ of Mizoram, a rare zinger species
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Mantisia spathulata (Roxb.) Schult. belonging to the family Zingiberaceae is a rare ornamental Zingiber distributed from eastern Himalaya to Myanmar. In India, this species is confined to very few localities of northeastern India. A new location for the species was discovered at Kolasib, Mizoram. The species was recorded growing at an altitude of 662m. A thorough ecological sampling was done for the population. Density of flowering individuals and non-flowering young individuals were estimated. The species has never been recorded at this altitude previously and, as per record, no ecological work has been done earlier. The average density of Mantisia spathulata within its growing patch is 18(±2) individuals per m2. A total of 120 juvenile individuals (without flowers) were recorded from a 1×1 m2 plot; indicating a very good regeneration of the species within the patch where it is growing.

  • Title
    Stahlianthus involucratus (King ex Baker) Craib ex Loes.: a new record to the flora of Mizoram, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The botanical study of a germplasm, looking similar to Curcuma species and originally collected from the wild in Kolasib District of Mizoram, at the field genebank of ICAR-NBPGR Regional Station, Shillong, led to its confirmation and authentication as Stahlianthus involucratus (King ex Baker) Craib ex Loes.  Earlier, this taxon had been reported from the states of Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland and West Bengal (Darjeeling) in India; this report indicates its distribution in Mizoram also. Its description, phenology, habitat and other field notes, and usefulness have been highlighted here.
