About this book

Seventy-two species of pteridophytes are recorded from the Indian district Kupwara in Jammu & Kashmir, based mainly on the many collections of pteridophytes made by the third author in an ongoing programme from that area, which lies slightly north of the main Kashmir Valley. His various collections have been identified by the first two authors from photographs. All collections have been deposited in KASH (Herbarium, University of Kashmir, Srinagar).

Many interesting findings of ferns, that were not known from Jammu & Kashmir, have been made from Kupwara. The most important was the discovery of Polystichum aculeatum. Other interesting findings from Kupwara are: Polystichum stimulans (not earlier known from Jammu & Kashmir), Pteridium brownseyi (not known east of Jammu & Kashmir), Deparia macdonellii, Diplazium khullarii (species is cantered on Jammu & Kashmir and is gradually replaced from Chamba (Himachal Pradesh) eastwards by the closely related D. squanigerum), Dryopteris juxtaposita (very uncommon west of Himachal Pradesh), Dryopteris kashmiriana (a very rare species) and Lepisorus morrisonensis (an uncommon high altitude species).

A few European ferns are present in Kupwara and are not known eastwards, some of these are: Dryopteris filix-mas, Polystichum lonchitis, P. aculeatum, Cheilanthes pteridioides subsp. acrostica,  Cystopteris fragilis notho subsp. x montserratii etc. Attempts have been made to rectify some misidentifications of the ferns of Jammu & Kashmir (also present in Kupwara) in some publications.
