The main objectives of this Flora are (1) to provide in a book of workable size with the names of identifying the numerous species (2) to give an up-to-date nomenclature of the plant species (3) to stimulate further research of plants in the different areas, (4) to induce the study of nature and the concept of conservation.

From the foreword: "In the recent years, the need for undertaking and cataloguing floristic diversity in biodiversity rich areas in the country has been realised to be of great value. Realising the importance of this, the Botanical Survey of India has started intensive explorations and studies in areas which have not been studied thoroughly and the Namdapha Tiger Reserve which is rich in biodiversity has been taken up for such intensive floristic surveys and(less)

From the centre of origin it has spread to almost in all tropical countries 40 North and South of the equatorial line. Remarkable diversity of bananas and plantains within India and other parts of the globe has caused a lot of confusion among the taxonomists and growers due to many synonyms.
For instance the famous commercial cultivar 'Poovan' has more than 27 synonyms in India alone. Banana being a natural hybrid of two putative parents Musa acuminata and M.

Afterword by Chhaya Dev. Glossary.
"To be assaulted, abused and raped by someone as intimate as a husband, or lover, is the most degrading experience for a woman. Not recognized as 'real' violence, abuse of this nature is experienced daily by countless women in every culture.
Behind closed doors of family, custom, values, traditions that are taken for granted and never questioned--are muffled voices of terror and trauma, which do not reach beyond the threshold nor attract the attention of lawmakers or redress agents. Edited by a renowned women's rights activist and a former victim of domestic violence, the book takes us inside these closed doors.
It puts together the life stories of seventeen women from diverse cultural, class, education and(less)

Index. From the preface: "Conservation of biodiversity is essential for survival of life on earth.
Various steps have been taken world over to achieve this goal. Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is the most important and globally binding effort made towards this.
But it is a pitty that even now, our knowledge on biodiversity of this planet is very meagre. Tropical forests which harbour over two-third of world’s biodiversity still remain under explored.
It is also quite alarming that maximum destruction is happening in such forests. Hence every efforts towards exploration and documentation of biological wealth is highly appreciable because there are very many chances for species to get extinct before they are made known to the(less)

A thorough study of the region shows a great diversity in topography and climate etc., resulting to its enormously varied flora.
Till date there has not been any comprehensive accounts of the fern flora of Kumaon Himalaya. Keeping this in view the authors have tried to fulfil this vacuum by bringing out "An Illustrated Fern Flora of the Kumaon Himalaya" in two volumes.

We hope that this will be possible by the simple key and description aided with photographs and map.
All examples of palms given in this book are cultivated in India. In some exceptional cases examples of some palms not yet cultivated in India have also been cited because those(less)
Still there are many species of green algae that are capable of growing in terrestrial and subaerial conditions. Their body organization may vary from unicellular to colonial forms, tubular to filamentous, leafy to siphonaceous and pseudoparenchymatous to heterotrichous type.
Most of them having cellulosic cell wall and uninucleate to multinucleate chloroplasts. In the cellular pigment content, chlorophyll is predominant and starch is the reserve food.
In Bangladesh, except for the work of Kundu (1929, 1934-35), Banerjee (1935), De (1939) and Fritsch (1945) no other investigation was carried out on algae, particularly after 1945. The reason for such poor record on algae in Eastern Bengal was due to lack of interested(less)

“The family Acanthaceae has been studied and revised taxonomically for the State of Kerala. The study reveals that there are 33 genera, 147 species and 4 varieties in the present political boundaries of Kerala.
Important literature of Acanthaceae pertaining to India in general and particularly to Kerala has been briefly reviewed. The varied habitats, habits and the macro and micro-morphological characters and distinguishing characters of the taxa have been described in detail.
Dichotomous keys to the genera, species and varieties are provided. For each species nomenclatural citation with relevant synonyms, descriptions, data on phenology, distribution, status, vernacular names, Ethnobotanical data, specimens studied and notes, wherever necessary are provided.
