Date of start of this project:

.

December 2012

 

Objectives:

 

  • Exploration and collection of Rare, Endangered and Threatened medicinal plants
  • Establishment in ex situ- field gene bank
  • Evaluation and characterization of collected species 
  • Distribution of  elite planting materials to the needy  people

 

Achievements/ Salient findings:

 

Exploration and collection of Rare, Endangered and Threatened medicinal plants:

An exploration and collection mission was undertaken for collection of RET species  namely Decalepis hamiltonii, Embelia ribes, Gloriosa surperba, Mappia foetida, Oroxylum inducum, Rauvolfia serpentine and celastrus paniculatus along with documentation of its population in various regions of Karnataka and Kerala.

 

Establishment in ex situ- field gene bank:

RET species  namely Decalepis hamiltonii, Embelia ribes, Mappia foetida, Oroxylum inducum, and celastrus paniculatus have been successfully established in the Ex-stiu field gene bank.

 

Evaluation and characterization of collected species:

Chemical profiling in respect to total Phenolic content and antioxidant study was done in 12 acessions of Alpinia galanga.
