    I have updated efi page on Juniperus

    Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links.

    Efloraofindia species’ page links are at the bottom of the page.

    Any comments are welcome.

    Thanks ... for listing the Junipers at one place and putting together synonymy. I'll once again go through my photo collection of Junipers of western Himalaya and try to fix their identity/ nomenclature..

    I am posting 4 images of Juniperus species from Himachal Pradesh together for the sake of easy comparison.
    These are, as I have identified;
    1. Juniperus squamata, a spreading shrub
    from Kinnaur
    2. Juniperus communis, a spreading shrub from Kinnaur, Berries (hauber) collected for trade.
    3. Juniperus indica (=J. pseudosabina), a spreading shrub from Kinnaur. Leaves used as 'Dhoop'
    4. Juniperus macropoda (=J. polycarpos) , a tree from Lahaul valley
    I request for critical identification of the above species. And is there any good key based on field characters?
    Wonderful & unique posting again.
    Thanks, ... You made my day.
    I think keys in Flora of Pakistan may be of some help.
    Thanks ... I'll recheck the identity & nomenclature again.
    The following link may be of use in this regard:
