Species & genera pages of Apiaceae are now with images : 1 post by 1 author.
Species & genera pages of Apiaceae in efloraofindia are now with images.
It involves inserting images on around 77 species pages (say around 300 images) & 39 genera pages. It also involved a lot of cleansing work like deletion of duplicate / wrong pages, correctly identify some of the threads, putting them at their proper place, proper formatting of the species pages etc.
I request our members to pl. take up one family each & try to make efloraofindia more constructive. We will be rendering what ever assistance is required by the members, in this matter.
