Efloraofindia website updated upto 31st Oct.’17- more than 12,000 species : 1 post by 1 author.
It’s heartening to reiterate that Efloraofindia is the largest google e-group/ forum in the world in
this field & the largest nature related e-group (and the most
constructive) in India with around 2,81,000 messages so far &
membership currently around 2905 nos.
efloraofindia (eFI in short) website
Intent of this website is compilation of all the posts on ‘efloraofindia‘
e- group along with providing other details so that it’s useful to all
concerned as all the data about a particular species will be available
under a single head & easily searchable. However, correctness of data/ identification in the efloraofindia
(earlier indiantreepix) links is dependent on the members’ inputs in
that particular link. Therefore, errors/ mistakes cannot be ruled
out-everyone is requested to point them out for corrections by sending
an e-mail to <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Efloraofindia e-group members can also add comments about it after ‘signing in’ at the bottom of the page.
Surfing efi has become much easier with subpage listings. Members are now allowed to insert images in efi site from efi e-group discussions. There has been tremendous response to this initiative & we
hope to complete having pictures to all species pages within 31.3.18.
We have simultaneously started displaying these at genera & family
pages with comparative images of various species for easy
identification. Insertion of images will also increase the accuracy of efloraofindia database. Here are the Heros who have done wonderful work in this regard. 2016 was declared as efi Year of insertion of images and more than 50,000 unique images have already been inserted.
For better viewing of species’ pages, colour scheme & formatting is being followed as at the footer of every efloraofindia page.
