What's your favourite monocot and why?: 

Bamboos are my favourite monocots. They are beautiful and add charm to any landscape. Its potential in rural economy of India is great. Its flowering and reproduction are fascinating. Working with bamboos since 1987 and could develop a Bambusetum at Tropical Botanic Garden and Research Institute (TBGRI).

Personal interets/role in project: 

Interested in the taxonomy of the Western Ghat (India) bamboos. There are c.22 bamboo species in the region. The identification of c.50% is a difficult task. The flowering cycles, reproductive biology etc are poorly known.
