efloraofindia site completes 10 years : 6 posts by 5 authors.
It is a matter of joy that efloraofindia (eFI in short) website is completing 10 years on 1.11.20 (although our journey began much earlier on 17.6.2007 in the form of of efloraofindia google e-group, which still remains our backbone). Today, efloraofindia is an extremely popular website with more than 3200 members and more than 1,00,500 visits per month. It is one of the biggest non-commercial citizen science efforts not only in India, but the world. Currently we have a huge database of around 14,000 species under 2,834 genera, 258 families of seed plants along with numerous species of ferns and fungi, showcased by more than 3,00,000 unique photographs. More than 80% of genera and family pages are already having comparative images, providing easy identification. Numerous species have been posted here (just to show a few examples), before these were described as new to science. No other site in the world has come up with such a large database and facility of comparative images as provided in efloraofindia. It is the result of a movement of tens of thousands of people from diverse backgrounds and from every nook and corner of the country, including top class experts from India and outside, coming together. It shows what can be achieved even without a single penny being spent or any one even physically meeting.
All of you can help us further in this effort by sending your images (particularly of rare plants and those which are yet not represented in our site) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and help us with correct identifications, if you find any mistakes.
Despite many hurdles and technical problems in developing, designing, maintaining, refining and updating eFI website, our commitment to serve nature and the nation has never diminished, but only growing with each impediment.
It is a matter of great pleasure and pride to all of us. Thank you all members and specially to …!
