A H M Mahbubur Rahman, Department of Botany, University of Rajshahi, Rajshahi-6205, Bangladesh
Systematic investigation on the family Cucurbitaceae growing throughout the Rajshahi Division situated in the northern parts of Bangladesh was carried out. A total of 24 species under 13 genera of the family Cucurbitaceae were collected and identified. A complete taxonomic account of each species has been given along with their current name, local name, brief description, phenology, basic chromosome number and voucher number. A new system of classification of the family Cucurbitaceae has been proposed on the basis of morphological, cytological and floral characters.
