List members from North East, pls help!

 
 
I am a faculty based in Central University of Punjab and working on phylogeography of trees. My group is currently working on Banyan (Ficus benghalensis) and Peepal (Ficus religiosa). Till date we have some 20 accessions of these trees, but could not cover the following places:
1. Entire North East, except Assam (including states Nagaland, Arunachal Pradest, Missoram, Manipur, Tripura, Sikkim and Meghalaya)
2. West Bengal
3. Laccadives
Both of these trees are very ubiquitous and if you need help with identification, please contact me. I would like to have 5-10 tender leaves of trees from each geological location (if exact lat-long coordinates are known, it would be very helpful!). If you are collecting from multiple locations, try to make distribution as even as possible. All contributions will be properly acknowledged and/or be considered for authorship depends on how exhaustive the help is. Courier charges will also be considered for reimbursement.

Interested students/researchers, please contact me!

Please make it convenient to collect the samples in two week's time; i.e., before 12/March /2014 and have it sent to me immediately after the collection. Hard deadline for receiving the samples is 20th March, and we will proceed to publication with whatever data we have till this date.
I would also appreciate if you can include most famous banyan tree in your location. I have samples from Big Banyan tree from Adyar, Chennai, but really want samples from elsewhere, like the great banyan tree from Botanical Gardens, Kolkatta, Pillalamarri, Mahaboobgarh, AP, Thimmamma Marrimanu, Anantpur, AP, and Dodda Alada Mara, Bangalore, KA.
