  • Rahul Zanan


Family Pandanaceae is one of the economically important families, fulfils the needs of food, medicine and shelter for mankind. The nutritious fruits of edible species are consumed, stem branches are used in construction; the leaves used for weaving mats and making garlands. A detailed survey along the Malabar region and Northeastern Himalayan region of India revealed that among the 14 Pandanus and two Benstonea species, P. odorifer and P. amaryllifolius are commercially exploited for aroma volatiles. The detailed information of Indian Pandanaceae species for their traditional uses, fragrance, pharmaceutically active compounds etc. is given
