Native Plant Database

Database of over 15,000 plant-insect relationships for over 2,000 plants (and growing) in India.

This database is the first database of its kind for the Indian sub-continent with specific lists of native plants ranked by the number of butterflies and moths that use them as caterpillar host plants. This database will help gardeners and municipal authorities to choose plants that are best suited towards supporting the greatest biodiversity in their ecological region.
