Since its inception, NGCPR Research Team has made many impressive research contributions.

Centre published more than 50 research articles in various national and international journals and has more than 200 citations




A digitized mega plant taxonomic database is created from freshly collected plant specimens, before they lose their natural features. It consists of species-wise taxonomic information in a digitalized format with easy identification keys. More than 80 endemic and threatened plant species have been documented digitally, along with illustrations, detailed taxonomy and distribution.
