Open data sharing by Keystone Foundation
Keystone Foundation, an NGO working in the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve (NBR) has been working for improving the quality of life and the environment of the indigenous people using an eco development approach since 1995. Over the years through a number of projects and studies the foundation has collected a variety of data that is potentially useful to a wider audience. This website is an attempt to share such data with the public under a Creative Commons License that enables reuse of this data easily by interested individuals/institutions. Do let us know your feedback in the comments section.
To begin with we have shared the data from two books on the flora of the Nilgiris published by the foundation.
Plants by Family names:
We have categorised the plants by their family names, which you can find in the main menubar drop down. Click on the name or the ‘More’ link towards the bottom of one item to get the details of that plant.
