R.K. Chakraverty (Author) D.P. Mukhopadhyay (Author) D S Pandey (Author)
Synopsis The present venture is the publication of live collections of plants or plants under cultivation in different botanic gardens and arboreta. This will serve as ready reference of the stock of plants maintained by the botanic gardens, experimental gardens and arboreta, the rare, endangered, threatened and endemic plants in particular. In case of any necessity either for conservation, utilization and identification one can easily find out in which garden(s) those species are available. Further the Reo Convention (Second World Summit of Reo de Janeiro, Brazil in June, 1992) has pointed out the significance of biological diversity (plant diversity) for sustainable use and development as the states have the sovereign rights over their natural resources and their conservation is a common concern of humankind and botanic gardens are the ideal resorts for their display, supply and protection. The publication covers over 5000 species from 38 botanic gardens and arboreta distributed in different biogeographical zones of the country which more or less comprise the plant resources adopted to varying edaphic, biotic and climatic conditions prevailing in the country. The enumeration of species are arranged in alphabetical order, with upto date nomenclature, synonyms (s) in parenthesis where applicable followed by family to which the species belongs. In most of the cases the information collected and data recorded by visiting the botanic gardens, arboreta etc. and also with personal contacts and correspondences. The plant list contained in this book is not comprehensive both in taxa and arena, cultivation and many more is likely to be added. This database is the first of its kind in the country, if not in respect of other countries.
