Field Manual on Herbarium Techniques

H.B. Singh (Author) B. Subramaniam (Author)

The science of creation of herbarium started way back in the 16 century when Luca Ghini developed the first Herbarium. Ever since then, there has been remarkable progress both in the areas of collection of plant specimens and the techniques that have been adopted through research over the years for enhancing the storage life of herbarium specimens.

The current approaches for the use of state-of-the-art technology for collection of specimens from various groups of plants, their preservation, identification and nomenclature, methods of documentation of information on plants and management of herbaria and other relevant areas associated with herbarium techniques and research are comprehensively covered in this well illustrated manual.

This book will be useful to the persons working as herbarium curators, teachers, scientists, foresters, research scholars, students, and those who are interested in setting up herbaria.
