Diospyros : 1 post by 1 author.
I have updated efi page on Diospyros

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

Efloraofindia species’ page links are at the bottom of the page.

Any comments are welcome.


.
Pl. go through Diospyros 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.
