Title Review

With ethnobotanical information with 1000 references, the volume contains ethnobotanical data such as uses of more than 4600 plant species for medicine, food, materials and faith and cultural purposes and deals with mainly angiosperm but also a few gymnosperm, pteridophyte, bryophytes, fungi, algae and lichen. It has an index of over 21,000 local names that are given for identifying plant species. The discussion is about vertical and horizontal evolution of the subject of ethnobotany in the country since its independence through examples. Medico-botanical folklore is also presented. It is meant to prove useful to phytochemists, pharmacologists, biodiversity conservationists and historians among others.
