Main Article Content
Magnolia lanuginosa (Wall.) Figlar & Noot. [= Michelia lanuginosa Wall.], a rare tree species of Meghalaya, is restricted to the West Khasi Hills District, Meghalaya.Â The species was considered to have become extinct from the state.Â The present paper reports a recent re-collection of the species from four locations in the West Khasi Hills after a lapse of almost 100 years.Â In addition, the population structure, regeneration status and the threat to the species are also discussed so as to develop effective strategies for its conservation.ÂÂ
