The Growth Pattern of Two Species of Schima by Ram Boojh and P. S. Ramakrishnan- BIOTROPICA 15(2): 142-147 1983
ABSTRACT– The growth patterns of two closely related deciduous tree species, Schima wallichii (at 100 m and 1600 in altitude), and S. khasiana (at 1900 m) in Meghalaya, north-eastern India, were compared. Both species conform to Rauh’s model of architecture. Sylleptic lateral branches formed on S. khasiana during periods of vigorous growth of the main shoot. Although stem extension and leaf production were continuous throughout the growing season, they exhibited (endogenous’) periodicity which was most marked in S. wallichi, at lower altitude. Schima wallichi at lower altitude had the fastest turnover of leaves.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Schima

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.

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.


I have added name of Indian species based on Flora of India vol-3.
