Emilia (Asteraceae) : 1 post by 1 author.

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


Emilia was updated… updated the page


What Karthikeyan, S., Sanjappa, M. and Moorthy, S. 2009 say about Emilia zeylanica Clarke var. zeylanica & Emilia zeylanica var. paludosa ? 


Thanks, … The Plant List does not attempt to include all infraspecific taxa. I feel it is always better to incorporate var. & subspecies if mentioned in our Flora.


I further feel that accepted varieties & subspecies can be mark with bold & others as normal.

Fwd: completed insertion of images of identified species of Emilia : 1 post by 1 author.

Pl. go through Emilia page (Asteraceae (Compositae)) with images of species in efloraofindia (done by Bhagyashri ji & TSP Kumar ji).

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), 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.
