About this book

There are in all 39 contributed papers, from India and abroad, making up 'Perspectives in Pteridophytes' which cover the entire spectrum of pteridology. We believe these contributions will be of interest to researchers and teachers of honours and post-graduate classes. For convenience, the 39 papers are grouped into three sections. Section 1 comprising 3 papers concerns Fossil Ferns and Allies. Section II concerning the living Ferns and Fern Allies is sub-divided into 5 subsections, A.E. Subsection A: contains 5 papers under systematics, Taxonomy and distribution. Subsection B: contains 10 papers under ecology, biodiversity and conservation. Subsection C: contains 7 papers under morphology, phylogeny and evolution, Subsection D: contains 6 papers under structure, development and morphogenesis. Subsection E: contains 3 papers under cytology, cytogenetics and genetics. Section III contains 5 papers under Pharmacology and Biotic interactions. The volume is preceded by a 'Preface' aimed principally at highlighting the utility of taking up research on pteridophytes, a group of vascular land plants of great antiquity, which promises to answer questions of wider relevance and also to explore them as economically viable medicinal wealth.
