A REVISION OF BERBERIS S.S. (BERBERIDACEAE) IN NEPAL

  • B. Adhikari (a1), C. A. Pendry (a1), R. T. Pennington (a1) and R. I. Milne (a1) (a2)

Abstract

The genus Berberis (Berberidaceae) in Nepal is revised and 21 species are recognised. Two species, Berberis pendryi Bh.Adhikari and Berberis karnaliensis Bh.Adhikari, are newly described and 11 taxa are lectotypified. A key to species is provided and all species are fully described and illustrated, and their distributions within Nepal mapped. An IUCN conservation assessment is given for each species.
