Caesalpinia (Fabaceae (Leguminosae)) : 1 post by 1 author.
I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Caesalpinia (Pl. click).
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.

…, please see the Caesalpinia genera page. I have re-inserted the pictures and they are now opening in the big size. I have used firefox browser. Both in chrome and firefox one can’t just copy paste the pictures but have to do the long way beginning with pasting the image link. But still it is not difficult.
Thanks a lot, … Well done.
I have done some minor changes for removing space & inserting subpage listing again.
Pl. see if it’s OK.
Thanks … for all help. I have also added pictures of C.pulcherimma & C.pulcherimma f. flava to the genera page.
