Supplement to the Flora of Madhya Pradesh

Anand Kumar (Author) K.K. Khanna (Author) R.D. Dixit (Author)
Synopsis The state of Madhya Pradesh which forms the central region of the country came into existence in the year 1956 after state reorganisation. It has an area of about 4,63,452 sq km and is a naturalist’s paradise with about 31.5% of area covered with forests particularly of tropical forests of teak, sal, mixed and montane subtropical forests harbouring a variety of wild animals. Although the botanical explorations in the state have been undertaken by a number of earlier workers like Jacquemont, Vicary, Edgeworth, Griffith, Hole, Brandis, Jerdon, Hobson, Kuntze, Barclay, Clarke, Wood, Morris, Duthie, Cardon, Hope, Watt, Haines, etc., most of the districts of the state remained partially unexplored for a long time. However, after the establishment of the Central Circle, Botanical Survey of India at Allahabad in 1962 exploration of various districts of Madhya Pradesh got the required momentum. Besides, botanists from some other scientific institutions and universities also took tremendous interest in exploring certain regions of the state, which has resulted in the publication of various accounts of the floristics of different areas as well as some district floras. Therefore, in order to bring the Flora of Madhya Pradesh more comprehensive, it has been considered worthwhile to publish the taxonomic account of all additional taxa in the form of a supplementary volume which will be very informative to various research workers engaged on the study of the Flora of the state. The present work deals with 379 taxa of angiosperms belonging to 233 genera and 65 families. As in the earlier volumes, here also the families have been arranged according to the Bentham and Hooker’s system of classification (with slight modifications as per recent treatment). Genera under each family have been arranged alphabetically and arrangement of the species under each genus is in the alphabetical sequence. Taxonomic citation, vernacular name/s (if any), description, phenology, habitat and distribution of each taxon have been provided in the present work.
