About this book

Language: English

From the preface:

"Wild Edible Fruit Plants of Eastern India gives an account of 150 important wild and naturalised fruit plants occurring in the Eastern part of India prepared on the basis of field work undertaken by the authors, and data available in published literature. For each species, correct botanical name with author citation, synonym(s), name of the family to which it belongs, vernacular names, flowering and fruiting time, ecological notes, uses of fruits and other plant parts, diagnostic botanical characters and notes on distribution have been provided along with coloured photographs for each species. The fruit uses with other parts described in Wild Edible Fruit Plants of Eastern India are based on fieldwork and a literature survey. Wild Edible Fruit Plants of Eastern India will serve as reference literature for those interested in utilization of these little known and neglected biological resources for hurnan welfare. It is hoped that the work will arouse interest in conservation, research, improvement and domestication of region-specific wild edible fruit plant species in India and elsewhere."
