Terminalia bellirica, known as "Bahera" or Beleric or bastard myrobalan, (Arabic: beliledjبليلج, Sanskrit: Vibhitaka विभितक, Aksha is a large deciduous tree common on plains and lower hills in Southeast Asia, where it is also grown as an avenue tree. The basionym is "Myrobalanus bellirica"
. (Fruct. Sem. Pl. 2: 90, t. 97. 1791). William Roxburgh transferred M. bellirica to Terminalia as "T. bellerica (
.) Roxb.". This spelling error is now widely used, causing confusion. The correct name is Terminalia bellirica (
1. Rainforest: The total area of rainforest at Mu Ko Lanta Yai is about 19.42 km. The average height of trees is 15–25 meters. The important plants are Hopea Ferrea Laness, Dipterocarpus Tubinatus C.F.

Alpinia nigra (synonyms "Alpinia allughas" Retz. and "Zingiber nigrum"
.) is a medium-sized herb belonging to the ginger family. The rhizome is well known in many Asian cultures as a medicinal and culinary item. In many Asian tribal communities it is a part of the diet along with rice.
The valley is partly wooded. Some of the woodland is rather wet and gloomy, but very beautiful; alder "Alnus glutinosa" (L.)
. is frequent beside the streams. Here also may be found the remains of beds and ditches for growing watercress "Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum" (L.) Hayek. These are largely silted up and overgrown, but the original springs are still flowing.
Hooker gives scant hint of why he chose "pygeum"; however, what he does say indicates it was common knowledge among botanists. Kirk's specimen fruit was "a much depressed sphere". By this, he undoubtedly meant to reference Joseph Gaertner's genus, "Pygeum"
., which innovates pygeum from a Greek word, πυγή, "rump, buttock", because the two lobes of the fruit resemble the human gluteus maximus muscles.
He is an authority on the Myrtaceae genus "Syzygium"
. and is working on a global monograph for the group with regional collaborators. He is also a co-author on the latest Angiosperm Phylogeny Group plant classification, APG IV, and author of the comprehensive practical plant books The Flowering Plants Handbook and The Gymnosperms Handbook
Among the littoral species tolerating a certain amount of salinity in the soil and in the water, the following five are the most common and remarkable ones: "Excoecaria" "agallocha L" (Tam. Tillai), "Clerodendrum inerme
." (Tam. Sangankuppi), "Acanthus ilicifolius L." (Tam. Kaludai Mulli), "Solanum" "trilobatum L" (Tam. Tudulai), "Pandanus tectorius Sol." (Tam. Talai). The trees grown in the area is Palmyra palm, Babul tree, Samutirappalai, Pongam oil tree, Wild date palm.
Until 1970, only seven Podocarpaceae genera were recognized: "Podocarpus", "Dacrydium", "Phyllocladus", "Acmopyle", "Microcachrys", "Saxegothaea", and "Pherosphaera". All four of the African species fell under "Podocarpus" – "P. falcatus", "P. elongatus", "P. henkelii", and "P. latifolius". Taxonomists divided "Podocarpus" species into eight categories based on leaf anatomy: "Afrocarpus" J. Buchholz & N. E. Gray, "Dacrycarpus" Endl., "Eupodocarpus" Endl., "Microcarpus" Pilg., "Nageia" (
.) Endl., "Polypodiopsis" C. E. Bertrand (non "Polypodiopsis" Carriére nom. rej. prop. 6), "Stachycarpus" Endl. and "Sundacarpus" J. Buchholz and N. E. Gray.
The Baydamtal Botanical Reserve is located in Tong District of Issyk-Kul Region of Kyrgyzstan in Chu River flood plain. It was established in 1975 with a purpose of conservation of Nitraria schoberi L., Nitraria sibirica Pall., and Halimodendron halodendron Pall. Vegetation in the reserve is sparse. The botanical reserve occupies 20 hectares. Among other flora species inhabiting the reserve are Artemisia tianschanica, Festuca valesiaca Schleich. ex Gaudin, Agropyron cristatum (L.)
., Astragalus albertii Bunge, etc.
Nelumbo nucifera, also known as Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, Egyptian bean or simply lotus, is one of two extant species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. The Linnaean binomial "Nelumbo nucifera" (
.) is the currently recognized name for this species, which has been classified under the former names, "Nelumbium speciosum" (Willd.) and "Nymphaea nelumbo", among others. (These names are obsolete synonyms and should be avoided in current works.) This plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1,300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China.
Raphia farinifera (
.) Hyl. is a tropical African palm tree occurring in lowland riparian and swamp forest, also around human habitations and cultivated locations, on stream banks and other moist situations at altitudes of 50-1000 m. Found in Angola, Benin, Burkina, Cameroon, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nigeria, Réunion, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe, and naturalised in Madagascar. Its genus is derived from 'raphis' = needle, probably in reference to the 4 mm long yellowish spines on the margins and main veins of the leaflets. The specific name refers to a type of starchy flour obtained from the trunk pith - 'farina' = starch, 'fera' = bearing. margins and main veins with yellowish spines up to 4 mm long
"Lumholtz (1889: p. 197, 1980: p. 239) briefly noted that he collected adults of this species [cited as "Stigmodera alternata"] amongst grass (?) near the Herbert River, northern Queensland near the end of December 1882; it is obvious that Lumholtz must have collected dead or dying beetles since these buprestids do not inhabit nor feed on grasses. Nothing further was recorded on the biology of this species until Brooks (1948) recorded adults [as "Castiarina alternata" Lumh.] feeding from the flowers of "Eucalyptus gummifera" (
.) Hochr. in the Cairns-Mareeba area of north-eastern Queensland. Later Brooks (1969) recorded this species [as Castiarina alternata Lumh.] feeding from the flowers of Eucalyptus polycarpa F. Muell. [cited incorrectly as "Eucalyptus polycarpha" F.v.M.] in the Bowen-Ayr-Mt. Molloy area of north-eastern Queensland. Life-stages: The egg, larva and pupa have not been described. Published collection records with biological data: None available."
(vi) Amendments to the entries in ICBN, Appendix III A, XIV. (1988, 1994). Through his Proposals, 33 in number published in Taxon between 1975 and 1987, Dr Panigrahi has highlighted many inaccuracies in nomenclature of several taxa dealt earlier by scientists from 'developed countries', and on the basis of his Proposals approved by the Committee for Spermatophyta/General Committee, IAPT, against the entries Desmodium Desf., nom. cons. Grona Lour. (1790) has been added as nom. rej. (vide item 3807); Plaso Adans. (1763) is treated as a homotypic synonym of Butea Roxb. ex Willd. (1802), nom. cons (item no. 3876); type species of Entada Adans. nom. cons. changed and Gigalobium P. Browne, nom. rej., lectotypified (item 3468); to maintain the current use of Lipocarpha R. Brown, nom. cons., Hypaelyptum Vahl is lectotypified by H. filiformis Vahl (item no. 452); type species of Oberonia Lindley, nom. cons. is changed (item 1558), as also of Calanthe R.Br., nom. cons. (item no. 1631); and Hiptage
