Additional Elements in Indian Flora (Vol. 1)

B. Roy (Author) U.P. Samaddar (Author)
Synopsis The Indian region has a large variety of flora. The objective of the present text is to highlight the details of the additional elements from different phytological regions of explored, underexplored and unexplored areas which are also drawing attention and intensifying the interest for biodiversity in the country, now taking precedence over the other concerns. Many of the plants included here, are indicated with degree of threat in the "Red Data Book of Indian Plants." Thus this information on new elements is not only pioneer to more complete works but also a link of the previous and present works. Since the communications and efforts made in earlier enumerations on the above subject are devoid of thorough information about description, distribution, habitat, phenological data, location of the herbarium materials and important remarks; a detailed account reproducing the original contents felt useful. The prediction of phenological data (in some cases) has been made from dates of the collections (presumed to be in fertile condition), from the other sources and marked with asterisk. The notes at the last para of new species furnishes the distinctions from allied species and other information including epithet. The second part relates to the plants reported as its first occurrence in India and extension of phytogeographical ranges of the species further. The plants which have been introduced and reported with sign of being quite at home in Indian habitat are also considered as new entrants in the flora of the country. To distinguish between authors of same surname, abbreviated available names of most of the Indian authors (from "Authors of plant names" edited by R.K. Brummit & C.E. Powell) are placed here. Added mention of new homes of two or three of such species described as new to science from India with particular locality but reported its availability recently from other places are kept in first part of the book. Name or status of the species has been maintained as mentioned by author of that particular literature. All the species are arranged alphabetically. Apart from botanical names in alphabetical sequence in the index, a separate index chapter has been prepared with species in alphabetical sequence under respective families. The correct name of the species appears in bold letters. All important synonyms of the species, in new records are also given.
