Here's a interesting example of the interdependence of plants and birds. Jatropha integerrima Jacq. from my compound in Mumbai. This shrub flowers almost throughout the year. The leaves have been stitched together for a nest by the ingenious little tailor bird !
The leaves are alternate, stipulate and panduraeform or fiddle shaped, cordate, at the base with 3-4 glandular teeth on each side near the base, smooth dark green above, pale or purplish tinged below. Flowers in terminal corymbose cymes, monoecious or dioecious.
