Floristic Diversity and Conservation Strategies in India (Volume 4)

N.P. Singh (Editor) D K Singh (Editor)
Synopsis Based on the enormous data, accumulated by the scientists of the Botanical Survey of India over a period of more than hundred years, on various facets of the floristic wealth of our country, the department initiated a series on Floristic Diversity and Conservation Strategies in India to take stock of the status of diversity and conservation in various taxonomic groups of Flora of India and related applied aspects. The first volume in the series, covering a general review of floristic diversity and conservation strategies in the country, and specific chapters on different groups of Cryptogams, viz. Algae, Fungi, Lichens, Bryophytes (liverworts and mosses), Pteridophytes, and the Gymnosperms was published in 1997. Whereas, the next two volumes dealing with floristic diversity in context of States and Union Territories of India were brought out in 1999. The volume IV in the series is devoted to selected taxa of Angiosperms, viz. dominant families, genera and groups, including agrobiodiversity, medicinal plants and ethnobotany, besides a general overview of taxonomic, economic, aesthetic, cultural and conservational aspects of species diversity in Indian Angiosperms. These volumes will provide an important input for the Biological Wealth of India, a publication proposed to be brought out by the Ministry of Environment and Forests on the lines of Megadiversity : Earth’s Biologically Wealthiest Countries."
