    • Abstract


      The chemotaxonomy of twelve species ofBauhinia is presented. From the quantified data on the distribution pattern of different chemical constituents, including the free aminoacids, it is inferred that the taxa are closely related and do not warrant splitting of the genus. However, the division of the genus based on certain selected phenolic constituents does not conform to the one on morphological grounds.
