About this book

Diversity and Conservation of Plants and Traditional Knowledge covers various aspects of plant sciences such as floristic studies and revisions new records of plants nomenclature of taxa systematic and phylogeny distribution and conservation, traditional resources and medicinal uses. The articles in this book are informative and would be useful in updating the floristic scenario of India and beyond. According to a recent estimate of IUCN the current species extinction rate is between 1000 and 10 000 times higher than it would naturally be. In view of this alarming situation to support conservation of all genetic resources of the country regular survey and field data are very necessary and the present book would be useful to this end.
