Indigofera : 1 post by 1 author.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Indigofera

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 am starting Indigofera Week at efloraofindia from  23.11.15 to 29.11.15 on experimental basis in a new way.

I will request members to help me in the completion of insertion of images of all the species of Indigofera already posted on efi on species pages. We will then put these on genera pages for comparison so that members can compare their images, initiate the discussions to find out the mistakes, correct them, help in the identification of unidentified species etc..
Members are also welcome to add any new Indigofera species which is already not their in efi site, if they have any photographs.

I shall also request the Experts to pl. help us in this process.


This is a nice idea however I once again remind you to advise members on avoiding multiple images and also on posting only those images that show key characters of that genus. Experts can list these characters appearing in the dichotomous keys given in the floras. This will facilitate members to id species easily.


Insertion of images at species pages of Indigofera completed (except unidentified species)


Thanks for the info Sir, should i start working on genus page?


Yeah, That will be nice.


done, thank you


I have added the list of species in India based on Sanjappa 1995 (mainly).


.
Pl. go through Indigofera page with images of species in efloraofindia (mainly done by me & …).
Pl. initiate the discussions to find out the mistakes, suggest correct Id if you know, help in the identification of unidentified species etc..
They are also requested to go through their posted threads & see if there is any wrong identification etc.
Members are also welcome to add any new Indigofera species which is already not their in efi site, if they have any photographs.
… will add species found in India from reliable sources in due course. If somebody can help in this, it will be really nice.
If somebody has ‘A revision of trifoliolate Indigofera (Tribe Indigofereae: Fabaceae) in India – Vibha Chauhan, Arun Pandey – Phytotaxa  Vol 220, No 1 (2015)’ & provide a copy for private use, it may help us in sorting out some contentious species.
I shall also request the experts to pl. help us in this process.
Hope Indigofera Week from 23.11.15 to 29.11.15 becomes fruitful.

Seeing the abstract of the paper you have mentioned, I feel that it agrees to the earlier information by Sanjappa (1995) which is a fine document describing all species of Indigofera in India. I have prepared the list of species and posted it to the group. Dr Sanjappa has also give quality diagrams of all these species. I am a bit surprised that B.S.I. have not made it online in efloraindia.


Yes, I am aware of the publication on Indigofera by Dr. Sanjappa.  He is now editing the Volumes 6 and 7 of Flora of India containing the Legumes and I am sure that BSI will publish these volumes in near future.  So far as I know, BSI wants to put all its published documents online as a policy matter.  It requires some time to retrieve them. 


Thank you for informing about the future plans of BSI.
I am eagerly waiting for the Flora of India volumes containing Legumes (6 & 7 as you mentioned). I am very sure that it will be a high quality document like vol-23.


Everything will be free in the website bsi.gov.in
They have to scan the huge documents generated so far and put them on the net.  This will certainly take some time. Everything will be free for the users unlike those of Indian Forester and Journal of Bombay Natural History Society who charge huge amount for providing PDF of back issues of their journals. I have had no opportunity to visit BLAT but someone told me that they are now charging even for herbarium consultation.  On the contrary,  herb. CAL is being digitized and a day will come when anyone can see the virtual herbarium, starting with the type materials, absolutely free of cost. Someone told that Nelumbo (formerly Bull. Bot. Surv. India) will be available online very soon.


Yes Sir ! I have been tracking the changes in BSI and very happy that they are opening their treasure of information to all interested in flora of India.

Fortunately, whatever is on the net by BSI is already with me as hard copies and I use this literature as standard literature and owe a great respect to it.

However, a lot remains to be done. With newly inducted young blood in BSI and with the guidance of experienced taxonomists we will have complete flora of India.


We all want that the Flora of India Project is completed.  It will be a great moment for us to see that the new generation of  scientists of the dept. take up the responsibility and complete this project as early as possible.  I am proud that I learned taxonomy from a very able scientist of this dept., Dr. N. P. Balakrishnan.

I am aware of your concern for a national flora which was reflected through your article published sometimes back in Current Science and we all discussed about it.  Even Flora Malesiana Project has been speeded up as they have felt that with the present pace of in depth studies, it may take generations to complete!

No more comments.


The Second photo in Indigofera glandulosa and

the First photo in Indigofera trifoliata appears to be similar. Pl. have look


Thanks, …, for pointing out. These belong to two different threads by … & …:

I request them to have a look at these & correctly identify them (particularly from the paper on trifoliate Indigofera species sent by Arun Pandey ji) 


Very important feedback from … Need to look deeper into it.

Indigofera species in India : 5 posts by 3 authors.
Indigofera is a big genus in India and thoroughly studies by Dr M.Sanjappa. I have compiled the list of species based on Sanjappa (1995), Chauhan et al. 2013 and The Plant List 2013.
It may be incorporated in eFI database.

…………………


Thanks for this compilation. Where can we get compilation of images along with species?


28 species are in eFI itself as images.
For line diagrams document by Dr Sanjappa (Sanjappa 1995 as also mentioned in the references) is the best source.


I have made certain changes in Indigofera page regarding the species found in India. Pl. see if it’s all right.


Thank you for compiling the list of Indigofera species, …

Can you send me the paper on “Indigofera himachalensis” by Chauhan and Pandey. I am not able to download it from anywhere as do not have access.


I. himachalensis V.Chauhan & A.K.Pandey and I. himalayensis Ali have not been included in the list at efloraofindia.


.

Pl. go through Indigofera (‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Fabaceae (Leguminosae)‎) page with images of species in efloraofindia.

If you find any incorrect identification, pl. let us know. If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), if any, or can identify unidentified images, it will be really nice.
