Supplement to Flora of Andhra Pradesh India

C Sudhakar Reddy (Author) K.N. Reddy (Author) Vatsavaya S. Raju (Author)
Synopsis Increasing worldwide concern over the present state of biodiversity and conservation has now given a new lease of life to exploratory studies. Neglected in the past, our knowledge about the floristic and faunistic diversity of our country is far from complete. This is especially true of Andhra Pradesh, one of the largest State of India. In spite of the fact that it is floristically one of the richest areas in India, a complete inventory of the flora of Andhra Pradesh is still lacking. Further, compilation of regional flora should provide the basic material for the envisaged Flora of India. A first compilation of the Flora of Andhra Pradesh was prepared by Pullaiah et al. (1997), which deals with 2500 species of angiosperms. However, during further study of herbarium specimens and perusal of literature it has been observed that about 272 taxa need to be included in Flora of Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, in order to make the flora of Andhra Pradesh more comprehensive, it was considered worthwhile to publish the taxonomic account of all additional taxa in the form of a supplement. This book would be of use to botanists, foresters, environmentalists, the students of botany and research workers interested in the flora of the Andhra Pradesh. Families have been arranged according to the Bentham and Hooker system of classification (with a slight modifications to accommodate recent changes).
