Dear members, Sh. Chris Chadwell is the Star Expert of previous month with 395 messages mostly dealing with the identifications.
He is the Expert contributor about Ladakh & Himalayan plants. His web-site (http://www.shpa.org.uk/) introduces some of his activities including a serious interest in Ladakh flora over a period of 36 years. Indeed it is fair to say he has devoted my life to the study of Himalayan flora, particularly in what I would describe as the borderlands of Western Tibet. He is making a worthwhile contribution to our site for species from Ladakh, the Western Himalaya in general and the other parts of the Himalaya to a lesser extent - which will compliment the existing expertise of those who post and make suggestions identification-wise. His familiarity with the flora lies primarily in mountain plants, as one reaches lower/ sub-tropical elevations. I thank Chadwell ji for your wonderful contributions to efloraofindia. -- With regards, J.M.Garg 'Creating awareness of Indian Flora & Fauna' <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Jmgarg1> Winner of Wipro-NFS Sparrow Awards 2014 for efloraofindia <https://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/award-for-efloraofindia>.
