The live germplasm collection of Pistacia at BIDR consists of accessions of 7 species out of the 11 species in the genus.
This web site provides a picture (Pictures taken during June-July, 2007) and information about each accession.
We aim to have accessions of all the species of Pistacia represented in the collection.
Each accession is presented by three numbers.
The first is the plot number (there are five plots, numbered 1-5, and two plots labeled A and B).
The second is the row number in the plot, and the third is the tree number in the row.
Instructions to view an accession
Each accession in a Plot/Row (1.1; 1.2; etc.) can be seen in an album containing an image and a short description.
Only for plot 1, there is additional data on phenology, height, trunk and canopy diameters,
shown in Plot Data Sheets.
