Research Publications:

He has published more than 300 scientific papers between 1951 and 1995. Of these, more than 80 papers are published in journals outside India, such as ‘Species studies in British Flora, London (1955), Proc. Leeds Philos. Soc. (1954), Proc. Linn. Soc. London (1958), Nature (1961), American Fern Journal. (1963, 1965, 1993), Taxon (1967, 1975, 1977, 1979, seq. 1987 – 33 papers); Kew Bull. (1974, 1975, 1976 – 13 papers), Notes Roy. Bot. Gard., Edinburgh (1975), Blumea (1984), Journ. Jap. Bot., Tokyo (1983, 1984) and Phytologia (1974, 1975, 1976). His publications (in which as many as six scientists from U.S.A and U.K. are associated as joint authors) have been referred to by many scientists, both in India and abroad (cf Saldanha & Nicholson, 1976; Nicolson et al., 1988).

Salient findings:

He established Tragus roxburghii Panigr. as a new species in 1974 to replace T. biflorus (Roxb.) Schult., nom. Illeg. (cf. Bor, 1960, 1970 vis-a-vis Saldanha & Nicolson, 1976).

He established a new Family Tectariaceae Panigr. (1986) to replace Aspiciaceae Mett. et Frank, nom. illeg. and two new genera, Brachycaulos Dixit and Panigr. (1981) (Rosaceae) and Parahemionitis arifolia (N. Burm.) Panigr. replaces the old World taxon, Hemionitis arifolia (N.Burm.) T. Moore.

He selected the lectotypes for several taxa: the one involving Gymnogramma calomelanos var aureoflava Hook, (1862) changed the entire concept of Pteridologists all the world over (cf Tryon, 1962 and Tryon et Tryon, 1982).

His selection of Faure 646-bis (P) as the lectotype of Aspidium jaculosum Christ (1904) in 1975, was accepted by Holttum (1976).

He revised Isoetes L. in India (cf. Jermy, 1990); Isoetes bilaspurensis Panigr. (1981) has been confirmed as a good species by Pant et al. (1993) through their SEM study of spores.

He resuscitated Polypodium griffithii Fee (1852) and transferred it to Thelypteris Schmidel as T. griffithiana (Fee) Panigr. (1975).

He identified the West Himalayan taxon known to date as Diplazium polypodioides auctt. as D. fieldingianum (Kunze) Panigr. (1975).

His hybridisation of a number of cytological types within Cyclosorus parasiticus complex (Panigrahi & Manton, 1958), Asplenium aethiopicum complex (Panigrahi, 1963), Aleuritipteris farinosa complex (Panigrahi, 1962) and Dryopteris villarii complex (Panigrahi, 1965), yielded significant new data to view the taxonomy of these taxa in new light and also to postulate the origin and migration of flora between Africa and India. Prof. R.E. Holttum (1976), Iwatsuki (1965) and A.R. Smith (1990) have referred to the work done on Cyclosorus as significant with regard to dominance and recessiveness of several characters. Discovery of a tetraploid cytotype in Dryopteris villarsii complex has led to Dryopteris submontana (Fraser-Jenkins & Jermy) Fraser-Jenkins being described as a new amphidiploid species in the European flora.

Cytotaxonomic studies in Indian Polypodiaceae have enabled him to postulate a hypothesis (Panigrahi & Patnaik, 1963) to explain the low percentage and grade of euploidy as due to its epiphytic habit, contrary to Manton’s (1953) and Mehra’s (1961) postulate on the subject of evolutionary trends amongst the tropical/subtropical ferns. Bir (1973) and Sota (1973) have referred to this hypothesis in their critical reviews of recent advances in the cytological evolution of ferns.

His scientific researches have also led to:

(1) Theorising the mechanism of photoperiodic reaction and his proposing a formula confirms and extends the one advanced by F.G. Gregory, FRS (1948) (cf. Samantrai & Panigrahi, 1954a);

(2) Synthesising 13 F1 hybrids in 4 fern genera (an achievement in itself judged against the chances of self-fertilisation in a fern prothallus bearing both antheridia and archegonia) and which do not lend themselves to emasculation and, therefore, ensure self-fertilisation) and meiotic analysis of these hybrids, have led him to postulate:

(a) superdominance of the male genome in F1 hybrids of Cyclosorus parasiticus complex – an adaptation of Fischer’s (1918) superdominance of gene-allele theory and to explain the phenomena of heterosis, patrocliny and reproductive precosis (Panigrahi, 1962, 1992).

(b) Asplenium aethiopicum (12n) from Madeira as an old polyploid complex involving several stages of hybridisation and chromosome-doubling from seven putative diploid cytotypes (all presumably extinct and untraced) in the field up-to-date (Panigrahi, 1963). Braithwaite (in Botanical Journ. Linn. Soc., London (93: 343-378. 1986) observes that Panigrahi’s 12n plant from Madeira is morphologically different from his 12n cytotype from South Africa, which he names Asplenium aethiopicum ssp. dodecaploideum Braithw. and the 12n plant from Madeira is morphologically similar to the 8n plant from South Africa and Sri Lanka-India identified with Asplenium aethiopicum (Burm.) Becher. ssp. aethiopicum Asplenium furcatum Thumb.), a cytotaxonomist’s paradox indeed.

(c) Operation of complementary gene system for producing golden-yellow ceraceous covering on fronds in the F1 5n hybrid, an experimentally produced apogamous taxon in Aleuritopteris farinosa complex (Panigrahi, 1962b).

(d) Probable ancestral parentage of several amphidoploid taxa.

3. Establishing the basic chromosome numbers in several genera of the Polypodiaceae (Panigrahi & Patnaik, 1961, and Patnaik & Panigrahi, 1963); Fuchs (1963) reviewed the paper in Nature (1961), in Amer. Fern J. 53 (1963)  and paid glowing tribute to the authors;

4. Computer-analysis of 934 species of Indian grasses (Clayton & Panigrahi, 1974) established as many as seven endemic centres in the Indian Region, with 41% of species endemics; by the methods of cluster analysis and with the aid of 13 maps and a diagram based on Peter’s ranking method, floristic relationships of the Indian grass flora with one or the other of 25 floristic regions delimited in the Old World, excluding the 14 areas in the Indian Region, were worked out. New evidence from computer studies was utilised to support Wagner’s ‘Theory of Continental Drift‘ and to include the Khasi-Nagaland-Manipur hill ranges and the Himalayas in the Holarctic Kingdom, although Good (1974) included these areas in the Palaeotropical Kindgom (cf. Takhtajan, 1986, Panigrahi, 1994).

5. Revision of several genera, viz. Pityrogramma, Thelypteris (ferns), Adenostemma, Dalhousea, Chlorphytum orchidastrum complex, Plantago p.p. and Toona (all angiosperms) at Kew and of Haplanthodes and Leptacanthus at Howrah, was completed.

6. In collaboration with his wife, Smt. S.G. Panigrahi (1977), they re-established Parkin’s (1914) views on the theory of evolution of inflorescences and suggesting that the solitary axillary flower is the most primitive structure, from which the cymose (monotelic) and racemose (polytelic) inflorescences could have evolved, at least within the family Lythraceae. Merril and Metcalfe, who had the occasion to read through the manuscript, agreed that Lythraceae appear to unique in this respect.

Supervision and guidance of researches in diverse fields:

In addition to supervision and guidance of researches done by a large body of Scientific/Herbarium Assistants associated with him during 1956 to 1982, as evidenced by several joint papers published during this period (see list of papers published), he supervised and guided researches of Research Scholars, 10 of whom have been awarded Ph.D. degrees by the universities of Utkal (1965), Calcutta (1984-1992), Berhampur (Ganjam) (1986, 1990), Sambalpur (1989, 1990) and Bihar (Muzaffarpur, 1993), on wide ranging subjects, viz. cytotaxonomy of the Polypodiciaceae of Eastern India (S.N. Patnaik); Flora of Bilaspur district, M.P. (S. Krishna Murti); Revision of the family Rosaceae in India (B.K. Dikshit, K.M. Purohit, Chhabi Ghora, and Arvind Kumar); Flora of Orissa: Polypetalae (S.C. Mishra) and Monocotyledons (A.K. Dubey); Flora of Koraput District, Orissa (P.K. Das) and Pteridophytic flora of the Tirap District, Arunachal Pradesh (Sarnam Singh).

Books published and edited:

(i) Flora of Bilaspur District, M.P. in two volumes (1989, 1996) with Dr S.K. Murti as a joint author. This publication deals with more than 800 species belonging to some 500 genera assigned to 125 families, in a semi-revisionary format and sets out a new standard in floristic research, since they cite original (protologue) references to the names of the families and genera and refer to the types/lectotypes in respect of all of them, and in many cases, also to the types/lectotypes of species dealt with. They deal with the medicinal/economic uses of the plants collected and provide a detailed classification of geological structure, vegetational types including a special chapter on hydrophytes and nomenclature. The volume 1 has been reviewed appreciatively in Kew Bulletin and Blumea (1993).

(ii) The family Rosaceae Juss. in India, sensu lato: (Revisionary studies on 23 of the 37 genera). Vol. 1 (1991) with Dr K.M. Purohit as a joint author and Vols. 2, 3, and 4 with Chhabi Ghora, Arvind Kumar and B.K. Dikshit, respectively, as joint authors – (Vols. 2 and 3 was due for release in January 1995 and Vol. 4 was in press) in a revisionary format. They describe a new genus Brachycaulos Dixit and Panigr. (1981), a new sub-genus, Geniculohirtistylis Panigr. and Purohit and 23 new species/varieties and 26 ‘microspecies’; a large number of new combinations (comb nov.) and nomen nova (nom. nov) are made; they discuss several problems of intricate nomenclature, discuss the theoretical basis of recognising several taxonomic categories, concept of microspecies in obligate apomicts, and outline the distribution and evolutionary trends within the family, utilising the entire gamut of evidence from fossil history, cytology, anatomy and phytochemistry. The Vol. 1 bears a FOREWORD from Prof. K.R. Robertson, Illinois, USA, and Vol. 2, a FOREWORD from Prof. C. Kalkman, Netherlands. Vol. 1 has been reviewed in Blumea, Bot. Journ. Linn. Soc., London, and in Kew Bulletin, very appreciatively. While Vaughan (1993) recommends that every institution in the world interested in the flora of India, must possess a copy, Kalkman (1993) considers that it should serve as a model for Regional Revisionary Research.

Roseacea Juss. s. lat. is split up into three families, Chyrsobalanaceae R. Br., Neuradaceae Link and Rosaceae Juss., s. str. and within the last one, four subfamilies/22 tribes are recognised.

(iii) Pteridophytic flora of the Tirap District, Arunachal Pradesh:

Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, with Sarnam Singh as a coauthor, which deals with 305 species, all excellently illustrated, with several photographs of type specimens/authentic specimens, was in press. Late Prof. K.U. Kramer of Zurich wrote a FOREWORD for these volumes being published by M/S Bishen Singh Mahendra Pal Singh, Dehra Dun. 50 new species are described from this area of immense phytogeographical interest.

(iv) Flora of Orissa (Polypetalae & Monocotyledons):

The modern Orissa state has no FLORA of its own. To remove this lacuna in the study of the flora of Orissa, two volumes, one dealing with the Polypetalae comprising 850 spp. and the other with the Monocotyledons with about 800 spp. have been prepared in a semi-revisionary format; of the former, some 80 pages are already printed in 1,000 copies by the Berhampur University, Ganjam, Orissa. When printed, these volumes will give a tramendous boost to studies and research on the flora of the state.

(v) Botanical editor of the Flora of the USSR (English Translation):

Dr Panigrahi has acted as the Botanical Editor of the Flora of USSR Vol. 25 (1990), Vols. 22 and 30 (1994), and Vol. 26 (1995) translated into English from the Russian text by M/S Doon Scientific Co. Dehra Dun. The botanical editing takes critical note of the nomenclatural problems in the original text and ‘Editorial Notes’ are interspersed in the body of the text in the light of the ICBN (1988, 1994), often to the chagrin of the European reviewers. Dr Panigrahi has proposed Pulicaria pulicarius (Scop.) Panigr., comb. nov. to replace P. prostrata (Gilib.) Ascherson, nom. Invalid; and in 1995, Endocellion Gmelini (DC) Panigr., comb. nov. and Tripleuspermum grandiflorum (Hook.) Panigr., comb. Nov., are established.

(vi) Amendments to the entries in ICBN, Appendix III A, XIV. (1988, 1994). Through his Proposals, 33 in number published in Taxon between 1975 and 1987, Dr Panigrahi has highlighted many inaccuracies in nomenclature of several taxa dealt earlier by scientists from ‘developed countries’, and on the basis of his Proposals approved by the Committee for Spermatophyta/General Committee, IAPT, against the entries Desmodium Desf., nom. cons. Grona Lour. (1790) has been added as nom. rej. (vide item 3807); Plaso Adans. (1763) is treated as a homotypic synonym of Butea Roxb. ex Willd. (1802), nom. cons (item no. 3876); type species of Entada Adans. nom. cons. changed and Gigalobium P. Browne, nom. rej., lectotypified (item 3468); to maintain the current use of Lipocarpha R. Brown, nom. cons., Hypaelyptum Vahl is lectotypified by H. filiformis Vahl (item no. 452); type species of Oberonia Lindley, nom. cons. is changed (item 1558), as also of Calanthe R.Br., nom. cons. (item no. 1631); and Hiptage Gaertn., nom. illeg. is conserved and added to ICBN (vide no. 4208).

His proposal to treat Christella Lev. (1915) as confusable with Cristella Pat. (1887) called for a decision of the General Committee, IAPT, as not confusable and the example was entered in Art. 64.3, Ex. 10 ICBN 1988 as a suitable example for guidance (cf Taxon 35: 551. 1986).

Ecosystems, Biodiversity, Conservation, Green Revolution, Economic Botany/Ethnobotany:

He has participated in several international/national symposia on these topics at Cambridge, Kew, Berlin, Calcutta, Viswa-Bharati and Bhubaneswar, and has published a number of papers. The last two papers: (1) ‘Management of ecosystems – need of education for conservation of Biodiversity’ delivered at Bhubaneswar in February, 1994, in a UGC-sponsored symposium runs to seven printed pages and forms the very first paper of Chapter 1 of a book being published by the UGC. (ii) His keynote address entitled ‘Economic Botany excluding the medicinal plants’ delivered in the 8th Biennial Botanical Conference of the Botanical Society of Bangladesh, Dhaka, in December 1994, is an erudite exposition of several aspects, and is being published during 1995.

Organisational activities:

As the Deputy Director (Special-in-Charge of re-organisation) he reorganised the Central National Herbarium (CAL) immediately on his return from Kew in January 1976, on modern lines – re-arranging 1.25 million specimens in a geographical sequence, as at Kew (K), and thus firmly laid the foundation (infra-structural in nature) essential for critical/revisionary/phytogeographical studies on the flora of India.

He is the founder of the Computer-data Bank Unit in the Botanical Survey of India, and has initiated work involving the preparation of the Type Specimens Register of Indian plant taxa.

Personal titbits:

(i) He was born in the village Baikunthapur, P.S. Basudebpur, Dist. Bhadrak, Orissa, of humble parents, on 27 February, 1924. Health hazards of old age necessitated transplantation of a permanent pacemeker in April 1996.

(ii) His first wife, late, Shantilata Panigrahi (nee, Sabat), a mother of four surviving children (two sons and two daughters), was an accomplished amateur dancer in Kathakali-Odissi systems of dancing, and was a Government of Orissa scholar at Shantiniketan before she was married off in June, 1948 but left or her heavenly abode in 1963.

(iii) His second wife, late Sarojini G. Panigrahi (nee, Tara Waman Kelkar of Pune) obtained her M.Phil degree from Reading University, UK, on the basis of her thesis on the Biosystematics of four genera of the Lythraceae – of her 11 papers, the one published in the Botanical Journ. Linn. Soc., London, 93 (4): 389-403 in December, 1986, evoked world-wide attention. She was also a poetess in Marathi literature. She left him as a widower at the age of 70.

  1. Dear Dr. Panigrahi,

    I am an passionate amateur flower watcher and recently came across a plant near Matheran, Dist. Raigad, Maharashtra, India which I identified as Lindernia caespitosa. While attempting to confirm the identity of the plant I came across your blog through a google search.

    I will be pleased to receive your article on the subject:

    ‘198. *Panigrahi, G. (1984b) Lindernia caespitosa, comb. nov., proposed to replace Lindernia pusilla auct., non Boldingh (Scrophulariaceae). Taxon, 33(2): 319-321.’

    and your tips on how to identify the species conclusively.

    Best wishes,

    • Dear Samir,
      Alas, I have no idea. I am not a Botanist to be able to guide you in identification and also do not have any of my father’s (Dr Gopinath Panigrahi) papers that are listed in the blogsite. I only set up this post in memory of a great Botanist so that his lifetime’s Botanical activities are known to people who can learn from what he did.

      I blog my views because I feel someone or the other will benefit from the information. I am pleased that you have found something of interest that you need for your studies. You will have to write to the librarian of the Botanical Survey of India in Howrah, Kolkata, and visit them to see if they can help you with your need. Their Botanists may give you details that will help. Taxon is an international journal that you should be able to obtain from most Universities with a Botany Department. You should also realise from what I know that Taxon articles may not give you the details that you seek for identification of plants on the basis of morphological characteristics.

      I am more of a Zoological scientist with a general interest in Biology who draws upon the Botany that my father studied in working out evolutionary biology. You may get a flavour of my interests in the following blogsite where I am engaged in tracing the origins of humans and am seeking the participation of scientists. http://dispersalofhumanityfromhomoegaster.wordpress.com/

      Sorry I cannot be of any more help today. If you cannot find the paper in India, please write to me again in this blogsite, as I may be able to obtain it for you from the Science Reference library in London or the British Library and then post it to you. I live in Kent so going to London will take me some time, but I will find a way.

  2. Dear Dr. Panigrahi,

    I am studying the genus Tectaria in the neotropical region and I’d like to have if possible your article:

    67. *Panigrahi, G. (1986e) Tectariaceae Panigr. fam. nov. to replace Aspidiaceae Mettenius ex Frank, nom. illeg. (Pteridophyta). Journ. Orissa Bot. Soc., 8(1): 41-42.

    I already tried to find this paper but I couldn’t find yet.
    Thank you for your attention.
    Best wishes,

    • Dear Jeferson,

      Dr Gopinath Panigrahi was my father who passed away over a decade ago and I do not have copies of any of his scientific papers as I have lived in the United Kingdom for most of my life and he lived in Kolkata in India. Sorry, I cannot be of help.
