Efloraofindia (earlier Indiantreepix) is the largest Google e-group in the world in this field & largest nature related (and the most constructive with around 2700 members & 2,40,000 messages on 31/3/16) in India devoted to creating awareness, helping in identification etc. along with discussion & documentation of Indian Flora. It has already completed eight years in June'2015.

One can visit & join ‘efloraofindia’ by clicking at Efloraofindia google e-group & then clicking on 'Sign in' & then 'Sign up' on next page OR by sending an e-mail request to <itpmods@googlegroups.com>. One should also mention his/ her full name, occupation (optionally: qualification, professional attachments etc.) and place & why he/ she wants to become a member?

Pl. follow 'Posting guidelines' while posting on the group. Members are requested to post more identified pictures of the species which has not been posted so far (no restriction of formats etc.).

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 11,000 species of seed plants, ferns, fungi & others (and with more than 2,20,000 pictures 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 has been declared as efi Year of insertion of images.
