Assessment of status and biomass of Swertia angustifolia : a high value Himalayan medicinal plant

Studies on population assessment and biomass variation in selected populations of Swertia angustifolia were undertaken in west Himalaya. Low population density across the surveyed populations indicates poor availability of the species in study area. Species showed random distribution and higher frequency of occurrence in most of the population, which is the indicator of better potential of the species in...

Allozyme diversity in South Western Ghats populations of Terminalia paniculata Roth.(Combretaceae)

Terminalia paniculata Roth. (Combretaceae) is a tropical tree with a large natural distribution in Western Ghats. The tree is extensively utilized in pharmaceutical, timber tannin, leather and silk industries. However, the species has been overexploited and information on its existing gene pool is currently lacking. The present work was therefore carried out using allozyme markers to assess the genetic diversity...
