Here is a query from Rashida ji:
"May I request if it is possible to enlighten us on the phenomenon of leaves without chlorophyll as seen in the young leaves of Brownea, Amhertia, mango, nagshekar and so on. Also as I see the families are differrent, Mango is Anacardaceae, whereas Amhertia, Brownea and Saraca asoca are caesalpinaceae although different sub families. There is a short note in 'Trees of Delhi' pg 326 on this. Is there any explanation of this behavior of trees? We will be grareful if you and satish ji or other experts enlighten us on this interesting phenomenon.Thankyou.
