Ethnobotany of Dadra, Nagar Haveli and Daman (Union Territories)

N.P. Singh (Author) P.P. Sharma (Author)
Synopsis Plants have played important role in human life. All earlier knowledge regarding plant uses was outcome of the early man’s observations and experiences through trial and error. This knowledge was transferred orally from one generation to another. Their understandings and perfections in using plant resources were unique and are being preserved in tribal communities since ages. But due to intrusion of modern civilisation, the living standard of tribals is changing very fast. To assemble and record this vast knowledge ethnobotanists are making significant contributions all over the country. The introductory part of the book includes all the available information on general topography, climate, vegetation and ethnic communities inhabiting the region. The enumeration part deals with ethnobotanical information on 305 species. Notes on chemical constituents, distribution, phenology and field collection numbers have been provided for each species. Reference to the uses reported earlier, has also been mentioned.
