Biodiversity Endangered: India's Threatened Wildlife and Medicinal Plants

A.B. Chaudhuri (Author) D.D. Sarkar (Author)
Synopsis Biodiversity is a much discussed subject of the present day in India in the fields of flora and fauna. Indian people of today are very much conscious and concerned about biodiversity loss and degradation of entire eco-system. The authors have collated various definitions, concepts and values of biodiversity and presented them in Charts and Shortnotes to make the subject perceptible to ordinary readers. For this they have chosen the medicinal plant species, birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, lizards and amphibia to highlight the biodiversity loss. They have supported their findings with adequate data and charts to nullify the much bloated conceptions that India is rich in medicinal plants and other animal resources. India needs a well designed strategy to protect these resources. Finally the authors have summarized the Herculian efforts of the Govt. Of India—how on warfooting they have been trying to save these resources from depletion. Hope, this work will open-up new vista in the status of our resources of flora and fauna.
