About this book

Language: English

India is rich in ethnic and floristic diversity and an enormous treasure house of traditional knowledge. Many scholars have worked hard to document this knowledge in the last 25 years (1991–2015) and this book is a concise representation of this ethnobotanical information in one single volume, covering 1000 references. It contains ethnobotanical data such as the uses of over 4600 plant species for medicine, food, material or for religious and cultural purposes, and deals predominantly with Angiosperm and a few Gymnospem, Pteridophyte, Bryophyte, fungal, algal, and lichen species. An index of over 21000 local names is provided for easy identification of plant species. A brief epilogue discusses about the vertical and horizontal evolution of the subject of ethnobotany in the country over the last six decades, using various examples. This book will also serve as a supplement to the Dictionary of Indian Folk Medicine and Ethnobotany (1991). It should prove to be an asset for phytochemists, pharmacologists, biodiversity conservationists, historians and all young scholars who want to pursue their career in the field of ethnobotany.
