Field workers in ethnobotany and anthropology come across different local names of plants in different regions and localities and find it difficult to relate them to their botanical identity. The present book covers over 26,000 tribal and rural local names documented from original research papers based on fieldwork in the country in the last sixty years and provides the corresponding botanical identity of the plants. Most of the local names are endemic to small regions and different from common Hindi or regional names.
Dictionary of Local Botanical Names in Indian Folk Life will solve a long-standing problem for field workers especially non-botanists and ground level scholars and also sociologists, anthropologists, philologists, ethnographers, geography scientists, rural developmental officers, forest officers, cooperative society, NGOs dealing with tribal and rural welfare as well as for foreign tourists in determining botanical identity of plants through local names encountered during their travel in various parts of the country
