I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Blumea

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details. If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful. Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


I have added list of all species of Blumea known in India based on the reference (Karthikeyan et al. 2009), threat status (if any) based on Red Data Book of Indian Plants, and names of Invasive Alien Species in India based on Reddy et al. (2008).

Re: completed insertion of images for identified Blumea species : 1 post by 1 author.


.

Pl. go through Blumea page with images of species (done mainly by Bhagyashri Ranade ji) in efloraofindia.

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, it will be really nice.

Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.


.

Pl. go through Blumea (Asteraceae (Compositae)‎) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know.

If anybody can send images of other species of this genus (for incorporation in the website) to indiantreepix@googlegroups.com, it will be really nice.
