A cultivated, usually sterile species ofPandanus, found rather widely in Malesia (especially in W. Indonesia, Malaya, and the Philippines, but also known in Ceylon), commonly used in cooking, e.g., to flavour rice and jellies, has been called in the past by several different scientific names, and indeed two distinct species were thought to exist. A review of this problem and a study of the plants as they occur in Malaysia, Singapore, and Ceylon, has revealed that in fact only one species is… 
The flavoring compound of the leaves of Pandanus amaryllifolius

Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb. cultivated as a spice in coastal regions of India
Pandanus amaryllifolius, an herb, is cultivated in home gardens in coastal regions of India. The leaves are added to ordinary rice while cooking to impart basmati rice aroma. The plant bears the same
Genetic diversity assessment in Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb. populations of India
The genome of P. amaryllifolius is said to be highly conserved and remained unaffected through its spread even though it is exposed to a wide range of environmental conditions across peninsular India.
Biogeography of Indian Pandanaceae
Biogeographically, family Pandanaceae is distributed in the Old World tropics representing five genera. The center of origin of Pandanaceae is not confirmed because of a few fossil records. Due to
Morphology of Indian Pandanaceae
The genus Pandanus is classified into 4 groups, 10 subgenera, and 59 sections (Stone 1974; Huynh 1991; Callmander et al. 2003). In relation to the infrageneric classification system (Stone 1974),
In vitro regenerating plantlets in Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb. as a model system to study the development of lower epidermal papillae
Pandanus amaryllifolius Roxb. has been identified as a rich source of principal basmati aroma compound 2 acetyl-1-pyrroline (2AP). An easy and efficient protocol for clonal propagation of P.
Conservation status of Indian Pandanaceae.
The Pandanaceae in India are represented by three genera: Pandanus Parkinson (distributed in South and Northeast India and Andaman and Nicobar Islands), Benstonea Callm & Buerki (distributed in

Conservation of Indian Pandanaceae: Current Status and Need
Conservation is meant to protect and to make sustainable the use of available genetic resources. The genetic resources play an important role in environmental protection, sustainable management, and


Morphological studies in Pandanaceae
The results show that systematic foliar anatomy is of considerable value at the infrageneric, supraspecific level, and that species-clusters corresponding to sectional taxa can be recognized and denned.
