About this book

Each contribution has been written based on thorough research, and includes recent developments such as molecular taxonomy and barcoding. Interesting aspects of naming plants, speciation, molecular aspects of plant identification, and e-flora have been dealt with in an elaborate manner. In addition, a chapter is dedicated to the genesis of botanical names and the meaning of the names of plants found in Delhi. Plant Taxonomy: Past, Present, and Future is a Festschrift brought out in honour of Dr Prithipalsingh on his 65th birthday for his dedication and devotion to this subject for almost 40 years.
