Efloraofindia (eFI in short) website helps in documenting flora of India that is being discussed on ‘efloraofindia’ e-group along with supplementing the working of the group. A species database (Alphabetically family wise- Seed plants etc.) has been created here family wise & then followed genus wise. Intent of this database is compilation of all the posts on 'efloraofindia' e- group 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. It has the largest database on net on Indian Flora with details of more than 12,000 species of seed plants, ferns, fungi & others (and with more than 2,50,000 pictures as on 31.3.17 at efloraofindia e-group links). 

Surfing eFI website 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 a year. 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.
