Rotala dhaneshiana, a new species of Lythraceae collected from a semi-marshy area of Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary in Kerala, India is described and illustrated. It is closely allied to R. malampuzhensis usually in having trimerous flowers, but differs in having 4-angled, narrowly winged stems, long epicalyx lobes alternating with sepals, obovate-apiculate petals, and absence of nectar scales. It resembles R. juniperina, an African species in having trimerous flowers but differs in having sessile, decurrent-based leaves and sessile pistil. © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

Fresh leaf material of Syzygium benthamianum a vulnerable tree species endemic to India, was steam distillation and analyzed by GC-MS for its chemical composition. The essential oil contained a total of 63 compounds. The major compounds obtained were sitosteryl acetate (11.83 %), stigmastan-3,5,22trien (7.0 %), 2,6-dimethyl-2-octene (6.99 %), estra-1,3,5(10)-trien-17.beta.-ol (6.3 %), ergosta-4,7,22-trien3.beta-ol (5.19 %), 1-methylcholest-1,3,5(10)-trien-3-ol (5.06 %) and a number of other minor compounds. This is the first report of essential oil chemical composition from leaf materials of S. benthamianum from India. © 2013 Copyright Har Krishan Bhalla & Sons. Source

Syzygium densiflorum is a tree species categorized as a vulnerable species in the IUCN red list of threatened species. Fresh leaf samples of S. densiflorum were collected from a wild tree and essential oil fraction was extracted by hydrodistillation process and the compounds were identified using GC-MS analysis. A total of 84 compounds were identified among which β-maaliene (17.43%), isoledene (12.46%), α-gurjunene (10.44%), β-elemene (9.9%) and β-vatirenene (8.50%) were major constituents. © 2012, Har Krishan Bhalla & Sons.
