About this book

Language: English

Uttar Pradesh is the fourth largest state of India and has a rich flora on account of its varied topographic and climatic conditions. This rich plant diversity has attracted botanists, naturalist and others who have contributed their knowledge about the flora of the state. Even so, the monumental work Flora of British India by J .D. Hooker (1972-1993) and Flora of Upper Gangetic Plain by Duthie (1903-1929) are the only comprehensive treatises where numerous species of the flora of undivided Uttar Pradesh were recorded and described, besides a few district floras and scattered articles published earlier. This work, planned in three volumes, is intended to fill this gap and provide a comprehensive flora incorporating all recent changes at species level in the present boundaries of Uttar Pradesh.

Scientists of the Botanical Survey of India started preparation for this flora in 2003. Volume 1 is largely based on the study of huge old collections housed in the herbaria at the Botanical Survey of India (BSI), Allahabad and Dehra Dun, the Central National Herbarium, Howrah (CNH), the National Botanical Research Institute, Lucknow (NBRI) and the Indian Council of Forestry Research and Education, Dehra Dun (ICFRE); the study of published information on the floristics of the state; and also on new collections made by some of the contributors from the unexplored areas of the state.

The present volume provides an introduction and deals with general chapters on physiography, geology, mineral resources, river systems, climate, soil, agriculture, horticulture, sericulture, people and population, protected areas, forests, floristic studies, eco-regions, forest types and vegetation, wetlands, plants on old walls and buildings, plants along the road sides and railway tracks, seasonal vegetation, invasive alien flora, floristic diversity, economically important plants, cultivated plants, escapes, endemism, sacred groves, rare and threatened species, medicinal and ethno-botanical resources, threats and conservation, etc. It includes detailed taxonomic accounts of 805 species, distributed under 355 genera and 81 families along with enumeration of 205 cultivated species of angiosperms starting from the families Ranunculaceae to Apiaceae.
