An Illustrated Fern Flora of the Kumaon Himalaya, Volume II

H.C. Pande (Author) P.C. Pande (Author)

An Illustrated Fern Flora of the Kumaon Himalaya is the first comprehensive illustrated taxonomic account of Kumaon Himalayan ferns after the classic works of Beddome, Clarke and Hope. The present endeavour incorporates results of the intensive field work carried out personally by the authors. This volume deals with the illustration of 240 taxa appending 82 coloured, black & white pictures of individuals fern. It is sincerely hoped that this book will be of immense use to all taxonomists, research scholars, student of botany, teachers, forest conservators, horticulturists and fern lovers. Kumaon Himalaya is abundantly embellished with rich and colourful flora, which stands apart from the flora found in the vast planes of India. A lot of research and exploration work have been done on the flowering plants of this region during 20 century but ferns have remained pathetically neglected. The study attempts a systematic illustrated account on ferns with analytical keys to the families, genera and species. Besides this, we have also tried to incorporate all available informations on latest nomenclature, original citations, synonyms, ecology and distribution data (Vol. I & II). While every effort has been made to make this account as complete as possible. Any work of this nature is bound to have omissions and errors. Hence, the authors welcome them if pointed out. However, the responsibility of all judgements of errors is our own if anything is omitted, misjudged in the text, we are sure the consultant will excuse us on the ground of limitations.
