Phytodiversity and Useful Plants of Eastern Ghats of Orissa: A Special Reference to the Koraput Region

 
M.K. Misra (Author) S.S. Dash (Author)
Synopsis

The present work embodies the result of more than ten years floristic and utility of plant resources survey of one of the remote areas of the Eastern Ghats region comprising four districts of Orissa, viz, Rayagada, Koraput, Nowrangpur and Malkangiri. The Koraput region is rich in plant wealth and for long time this area was under-explored. The study covers an area of 26,921sq km and the total number of species described are 582 (324 genera and 100 families) that includes several rare/endangered and endemic taxa along with 19 photographs and 16 line diagrams. Keys to the families, genera and species (based on modified Bentham and Hooker’s System) have been provided to help identification. Systematic enumeration includes species nomenclature, diagnostic description and local names. Phytogeographically the area is most interesting as its floristic composition represents an admixture of the northern tropical and temperate elements with those of the Deccan elements and a meeting ground of southern and northern type of forests. The book will be useful to teachers, scholars and students of botany, agriculture and forestry and to plant lovers and such others.
