Canavalia (Fabaceae) : 5 posts by 2 authors.  

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Canavalia (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.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


I have compiled and added list of Indian species.


Thanks, … I think Canavalia lineata DC. is not found in India as per FOC, GRIN, ILDIS, efi page etc.


Yes … This species does not occur in India in wild state but FRLHT has mentioned many local names of it indicating its significant presence (though in cultivation) in the area. Considering this I included this species also.


Thanks, … But I doubt it as otherwise it would have been mentioned (even if cultivated) in FOC, GRIN, ILDIS & other regional litratures mentioned at efi page .
However experts & other members may give their feedback & may pl. clarify.


There is a name called Canavalia lineata sensu auct. (syn. of Canavalia rosea (Sw.) DC.) with distribution in India as per ILDIS. It may have caused the confusion. 


 

Pl. go through Canavalia page with images of species (done by …) 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 me know.
