Re: completed insertion of images of Magnifera species : 1 post by 1 author.
1 species was already done by …


Pl. go through Mangifera (Anacardiaceae) 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 us know.
