An updated review on the Genus Glochidion Plant by *Sandhya. S, Chaintanya R. S. N. A. K. K, Vinod K. R , K. N. V Rao, David Banji, Sudhakar K, Swetha R- Scholars Research Library Archives of Applied Science Research, 2010, 2 (2):309-322
Abstract– Nature is the best combinatorial chemist and possibly has answers to all diseases of humankind. Till now, natural product compounds discovered from medicinal plants (and their analogues there of) have provided numerous clinically useful drugs. In India itself, there are more than 1100 medicinal plants grown all over the wild forests. Of these, some 60 geneses are used immensely in medicinal preparations. Glochidion is a very vast genus under which more than 250 species are present. Most of the species under this genus is widely constituted with flavonoids and triterpenoid saponins. This group of plants are well known among the tribes forits anti cancer, hypotensive, diuretic and various other properties.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Glochidion

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.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.

Glochidion‎‎ page with comparative images:
Pl. go through‎ Glochidion‎‎ (Phyllanthaceae) page with comparative images of species in efloraofindia. On clicking the link of species, one can check the complete details. Genus pages generally give details of most of the species found in India.
I request you to pl. go through & point out mistakes, if any. I hope this will aid in identification in future. If anybody can send images of other species of this genus (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
Most of the credit goes to Tapas ji.
