Flora of Sikkim: Ranunculaceae - Moringaceae

R.C. Srivastava (Author)
Synopsis Denzong or Sikkim - the tiny but pretty Eastern Himalayan state is a botanical paradise. It is one the floristically richest regions of the Indian Union. Its unique phytogeographical situation, topography and the high degree of precipitation, have resulted in enormous plant diversity. Within its 7300 sq km area, about one third species of the Indian Flora are represented. It falls under the hot-spots of one of the megadiversity centres (Eastern Himalaya) on global basis. The rich floristic diversity of the state of Sikkim has attracted the plant - explorers from different parts of the world since remote epoch. But till to day the Flora of Sikkim could not be published. Sikkim is regarded as a store house of many wild relatives of economic plants, which are of immense value to the man kind. In the fast developing state like Sikkim, the natural vegetation has been under great pressure due to the ruthless destruction and unplanned exploitation of the natural resources by the rapidly multiplying human population. It is feared that even before the proper documentation of the plant resources of the Sikkim could be completed, the ecological disasters might have taken toll of several taxa. Hence, it becomes essential to conserve and make best use of all our natural resources. This book is an humble attempt to provide information about the flowering plants of the state of Sikkim. Present volume deals with 63 dicotyledonous families (Ranunculaceae to Moringaceae). Hope, the readers will find the book of some use to them.
