Abstract

Gymnocladus assamica is a tree endemic to the North East region of India and is a globally threatened species. In the event of mass propagation of seedling for planting in forest areas, an experiment was conducted to know the germination behavior of the species. During the experiment certain seedlings were found to have triplet shoots. The percentage of such plants was 1.31% of the germinated seedlings. In all seedlings there appears to be a degeneration of one or two shoot at various stages of development.
