About this book

Language: English

This study is a floristic inventory of angiosperm diversity in Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park, located on the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago, which is the largest of the four Marine National Parks in India. This archipelago is one of the three major phytogeographical regions of India, and is well-known for its tropical lowland rainforests. Due to the physical isolation between the islands and from the main continental landmass, a rare and unique flora has evolved over millions of years, and about 40% of the species are not found on the main Indian landmass. Furthermore, most of the species are poorly known taxonomically.
