Carissa Kopilii

The study on the Carissa kopilii, a wild berry, was published in the latest issue of the Journal of Asia-Pacific Biodiversity.



About:


  1. The Carissa kopilii is threatened by the very river it is named after — Kopili in central Assam.

  2. Reasons: a hydroelectric project on the river and water turned acidic because of coal mining in Meghalaya upstream.

  3. The “sun-loving” plant is distributed sparsely, rooted in rocky crevices along the Kopili riverbed at altitudes ranging from 85-600 metres above sea level.

  4. Carissa kopilii, yielding white flowers from August-October and fruits from November-January, should have all the medicinal and utilitarian properties.
