Forest and Botany are very much information dependent fields. Studies on identification, nomenclature, classification and distribution of plants of forests are of paramount importance for research not only in Botany but also in various disciplines of Forestry and conservation. The wealth of biological resources and its availability in forests is serving as a source of knowledge to the life Scientists particularly botanists. In the face of the challenges imposed by the growing size and complexity of the Biological entity a new discipline of Science known as “Forest Botany” had emerged in the recent past.
The study on species diversity of our forests and their proper taxonomic identity, their distribution is the main focus of this book. Written to describe
