Tenjarla C.S. Sastry (Editor) K.Y. Kavathekar (Editor)
Synopsis This book describes briefly various types of wastelands, their characteristics, causes, the importance of green cover, role of nitrogen-fixing plants and energy-crops, and other related issues. Keeping in view the growing need for timber, fuel and fodder, this book attempts to bring together information on as many wild or not-so-wild plants as possible, which, besides being useful in reclamation, also yield other economic products. Out of the 1003 species dealt with, the major ones are described in their alphabetical order with emphasis on reclamation. The minor species are given in a table. Classified lists of plants according to their suitability for the different types of wastelands and also according to their economic value are provided a short account on the reclamation of mined wastelands is also included. An indispensible book for those concerned with environment, ecology, reclamation and afforestation; also useful for researchers and planners.
