About this book

Language: English

The Genus Primula L. in India: A Taxonomic Revision gives a complete account of the Indian species of Primula. This genus is one of the most beautiful herbaceous temperate alpine plants with a high level of diversity. In this book a total of 106 species and 13 infra specific taxa of Primula distributed in the Indian region have been documented through original taxonomic revisionary study. It provides accounts of species of Primula present in the Indian region with their correct nomenclatural status in light of modern classification. Some new taxa and new combinations have also been made in The Genus Primula L. in India: A Taxonomic Revision. The distributional aspects, nomenclatural and ecological notes along with the cultivation practices are revisited here to evaluate the information on spread, endemic nature and habitat, with the possibilities of cultivation of some species.

This latest account on Primula of India emphasizes correct nomenclature together with keys for easy field identification for one of the largest genera. One of the significant features is the presentation of seed morphology of 56 species with four infra specific taxa, and pollen study of 14 species through scanning electron microscopy. With the assistance of line drawings, photographs of live plants and photographs of nomenclatural types, an attempt at proper identification has been made. The morphological plasticity of a high number of species has been taxonomically treated with an idea of evolution within the genus and its allied genera to make this revisionary study useful to the plant taxonomists. Most of the queries on Indian Primula will be satisfactorily resolved by this book.
